Manchester United have announced the appointment of analyst, Ewan Sharp, to join Ralf Ragnick's backroom staff as an assistant.

Sharp's appointment was announced in an official statement on the club's website.

Ragnick and Sharp will reunite at Old Trafford having previously worked together at Lokomotiv Moscow, according to UK Sun.

The Scot has long been part of his Ragnick's inner circle, previously working with MLS side New York Red Bulls where Rangnick was formerly Red Bull’s head of sport and development, overseeing the energy drinks giant’s footballing initiatives.

Ragnick has also added ex-NY Red Bulls and Toronto boss Chris Armas as an assistant after the departure of Michael Carrick as well as former RB Leipzig sports psychologist Sascha Lense to his team.

United said, "Ewan Sharp has been working at Lokomotiv Moscow, alongside Rangnick, and is arriving as an assistant coach/analyst for the Reds.

"The Scotsman has previously worked with New York Red Bulls and Toronto FC, while also having a two-year stint as director of performance analysis at Northwestern University in the United States.

"Chris Armas has, of course, already been introduced to Rangnick's team and he worked with Sharp in New York and Toronto, with the pair knowing each other well.

"Ewan's role was performance analyst with New York Red Bulls, before taking up the position of assistant coach at Toronto FC in February of this year. He moved to Moscow last month.

"Sports psychologist Sascha Lense has also been recruited as the Reds look to end 2021 on a positive note with fixtures scheduled against Newcastle United (away, on 27 December) and Burnley (at home, on 30 December).

"First-team training resumed at Carrington on Tuesday, with a staggered return of the players, after the matches with Brentford and Brighton & Hove Albion were forced to be postponed."
