Manchester United appoint Ricky Sbragia as U23s boss

Manchester United announce the appointment of Ricky Sbragia as their new Under-23s manager.

Manchester United have announced the appointment of Ricky Sbragia as their new Under-23s manager, 12 years after leaving his role as reserve team boss.

The 61-year-old spent three years at Old Trafford in his previous position, before taking on the senior managerial job at Sunderland.

Sbragia lasted for just 26 matches at the Stadium of Light and was then appointed in a variety of roles with the Scotland national team, but he is delighted to now be back at his former home.

"I couldn't be happier to be back at Manchester United," he told the club's official website. "It's an exciting time for the club, with a new structure for the Academy and a relatively new set of coaches and management team.

"I am really excited by the challenge of this role, the club has always been at the forefront when it comes to academy football and I am delighted that the club continues to strive to be the best with its forward-thinking ideas for the future of youth football."

Sbragia won the Manchester Senior Cup, the Premier Reserve League North and the Premier Reserve League National Championship during his previous stint at the club.
