Eric Ramsey is having fun with a task to prominence at Manchester United with Erik ten Hag keen to maintain the 30-year-old at Old Trafford. And it seems he’s gaining increasingly prominence after his job was previously altered by Ralf Rangnick. Blackpool were recently fascinated by the Red Devils coach but, for now, he’s blissful working with the Premier League giants as an alternative.
Back in July 2021, United decided to rent Ramsay – with the coach given the job of being the club’s first set-piece coach.
They’d been impressed by the work he’d done at Chelsea, while also taking him on board following a suggestion from Kieran McKenna.
Under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Ramsay was given the job of specializing in attacking set pieces.
He also received assistance from Richard Hartis and Craig Mawson, too.
Yet, last yr, it was reported that Ramsay’s role on the club had modified and his opportunities to work on set-pieces were ‘becoming reduced’.

And there was a noticeable improvement in United’s set-pieces this term, at a time where they’re currently third within the Premier League title.
Van der Gaag joined United together with Ten Hag, with the Dutchman following the 52-year-old from Ajax to the club.
McClaren is back with the Red Devils for a second stint, having previously worked under Sir Alex Ferguson.
And McCarthy joined United last yr, with the previous Porto star helping the club’s forwards improve their shooting.

Ten Hag recently hailed the South African, saying: “In our coaching staff, we had lots of defenders and midfield players.
“I wanted also to search out balance. He’s offensive [minded] as he’s a former striker and that can be a very specific job task within the team.
“I never played there, so I’m lucky to have someone in my staff who played there.
“Football is about scoring and you might have a goalkeeping specialist, but you furthermore mght have offensive specialists and, specifically, we have now a selected scoring trainer.
“He has so as to add that, in details, working and for the remainder of us, he has a relationship to all of the players in our squad.
