Manchester United technical director Darren Fletcher was in the stands as Manchester City u23s thrashed the Red Devils in the derby played on Friday. Scotsman Darren Fletcher was on hand to witness Manchester City beat Manchester United 3-0 at home in one of the latest set of games in Premier League 2.


Darren Fletcher was appointed the technical director at Manchester United earlier this season and he even had to show his displeasure during the one-sided game. The former Manchester United player had to tell winger Anthony Elanga to be quicker and more direct in his play.


One of the very important reasons for the turnaround at Manchester United is the fact that French midfielder Paul Pogba has improved his game tremendously. Since the midfield enforcer’s agent broke the internet after making comments about his client wanting to leave the club, everyone expected the player’s head to be turned, leading to him playing without any interest for the club.

However, reverse has been the case and despite many expecting him to either be dropped to the bench or play without any sense of interest, he has actually improved his game and is currently the club’s best player at the moment.



Ex-Manchester United midfielder Darren Fletcher has returned to football after a little break away from the round leather game. The Manchester United legendhad taken a break from football shortly after he retired from the game last year. Darren Fletcher retired from football in 2019 after the end of his Stoke City contract.

He recently spoke to Manchester United about his return from the little hiatus he embarked on immediately after the end of his playing career at the Britannia Stadium. Darren Fletcher is back at Manchester United in a coaching capacity after taking a break from football over the past months. Darren Fletcher is with the u-16s at the Theatre of Dreams as he bids to get his coaching badges. He has decided to take a temporary coaching role at Manchester United where his football career started and this is in a bid to aid his development as a coach.



According to a report Manchester United will not consider the sale of defensive duo Eric Bailly and Diogo Dalot. The duo has been linked with summer exits in recent weeks amid reports that the Premier League giants want to reshuffle the side.

Bailly has been linked with a return to former side Villarreal and there are also links with a move to French side Lyon. Dalot meanwhile has been linked with moves to Everton and Italian outfit Napoli.


After spending 13 weeks away from the Manchester United squad while making everyone realize how important he really is to the club and now waiting Ed Woodward to offer him a new contract as soon as possible, Scot McTominay is now ready to make an appearance for the Red Devils.

The Scot was supposed to be an understudy to more established players like his country man Darren Fletcher was during his playing days but without him, United struggled badly en0ugh for Ed Woodward to write the check that recently brought Bruno Fernandes to Old Trafford.
