Eric Ramsay intends to stay at Manchester United as the head coach of the team, despite the specific interest from the championship club Blackpool.
Blackpool currently occupy the 23rd place in the standings after yesterday sacked the head coach and former Manchester United academy player Michael Appleton.
Two weeks ago, People Person reported on Blackpool’s initial interest in Ramsay.
Laurie Whitwell from The Athletic confirmed that the young coach will remain at United, and Eric ten Hag will play a special role in this decision.
Whitwell says Ten Hug appreciates Ramsey and considers him an important member of the coaching staff.
The 30-year-old joined United in July 2021 during Ole Gunnar Sulscher’s reign, and was initially tasked with “working one-on-one with individual players” and “taking responsibility for training in standard games.”
Last season, United conceded six goals from standard positions, which is more than 50% less than in the previous campaign (14 in the 2020/21 season).
Prior to that, Ramsey worked for two years as an assistant coach in the Chelsea under-23 youth team.
During this time, he became the youngest Briton to receive a UEFA Pro license: the highest coaching qualification in football.
He gained his first coaching experience by rising through the ranks at the Swansea City and Shrewsbury Town Academies.
Like Mitchell van der Gaag, Ramsay is a polyglot who claims to be fluent in Spanish and French.
As for Blackpool, Whitwell reports that “Mark Warburton, Tony Pulis and Mick McCarthy are fighting for a vacancy at Bloomfield Road, and Ramsay is unavailable.”
