Manchester United announce that Mitchell van der Gaag and Steve McClaren will be joining the club as Erik Ten Hag's assistant coaches.

Manchester United have confirmed the appointments of Mitchell van der Gaag and Steve McClaren as Erik ten Hag's assistant coaches.

After the pair were spotted alongside the incoming manager at Selhurst Park for Manchester United's final Premier League game of the season against Crystal Palace on Sunday, it was expected that an announcement was imminent.

On Monday, the Red Devils announced that Van der Gaag and McClaren would be joining the club to form Ten Hag's new backroom team.

Van der Gaag has spent the last year working alongside Ten Hag, with the pair guiding Ajax to the Eredivisie title.

McClaren, meanwhile, appointed Ten Hag as his first assistant coach at FC Twente, and the 61-year-old will be returning to Old Trafford after previously working as Sir Alex Ferguson's assistant manager until 2001.

Van der Gaag's appointment is subject to a UK Visa and a Governing Body Endorsement from the FA.
