Manchester United have sacked the reserve team coach Ricky Sbragia in the latest development at the Old Trafford, according to the Mirror.
There have been lots of talks and anticipation at Manchester United about the impending summer transfer window and how a bunch of Manchester United players could face the eventual sack.
However, it’s our reserve team boss Ricky Sbragia, who has faced the first sack at Manchester United.
There have been rumours floating around that Warren Joyce who was Manchester United’s reserve team manager for eight years until 2016, before joining Wigan, could return for the second stint at the Old Trafford in a simliar kind of role.
Warren Joyce joined Australian Football Club Melbourne City, which is ironically owned by Manchester City, but after a disappointing campaign down under where they finished 5th, the former United coach is set to return once again.
Manchester United’s youth teams have seen a dip in their form in the last few years. We were knocked out of the FA Youth Cup by Brighton this season which had raised several questions regarding our youth set-up.
Ricky Sbragia, meanwhile, was at his second stint at Manchester United, after managing us in a similar role from 2002-2005.
Sbragia is credited for developing stars like Darren Fletcher during his first stint at the Old Trafford.
However, things haven’t quite worked out for the Scotsman this time around. Given the performance of the senior side in the Premier League, Manchester United board has been under a lot of pressure and it seems like Ricky Sbragia is the first (and certainly not the last) to pay the price!
