Ewan Sharp, the latest United member: Ever since his arrival at Manchester United, Ralf Rangnick has heralded a few sharp changes to secure Manchester United’s future. Despite being a manager for the club on a makeshift basis, he had made his intentions clear and hopes to bring forth changes that can have a significant impact on the fabric of the club.
The latest addition to his prestigious list of officials was Ewan Sharp. Rangnick has started his United stint with a bang that has seen him winning two and drawing the Champions League fixture with Young Boys with his second-string squad.
A glimpse at Ewan Sharp and his glittering stint
In the long list of arrivals, Rangnick ushered in the likes of Sascha Lense and Chris Armas to the United army. According to the reports of Sky Sports, Sharp may join Rangnick at Old Trafford as an assistant coach and analyst.
Ewan Sharp was born in Stirling, Scotland, and is one of three children in his family. He started his playing career by playing for Stirling City that also saw him becoming the Player of the Year in 2006/07, also propelling the team to secure the championship in the Loch Lomond festival.
In 2010, he enlisted himself at Mercyhurst University in Pennsylvania to study a Major in Sports Business. At his college, he was a regular for the college’s soccer team, emerging for the Wildcats every single year in the following four seasons.
As he graduated in 2014, he was appointed as the assistant coach where he was trusted with the onus of implementation of a video-editing and analysis scheme.
This new development helped the players to learn massively about their mistakes and correct them to get better results. This also triggered a monumental shift in the team’s fortunes.
Along with the role that he carried on behind the scenes, he would resort to a hands-on approach that would help him run training sessions before matches and then help provide in-game management tips.
After his role came to an end at Mercyhurst, Sharp joined New York Red Bulls as a Player Development Coach which was also his first stint alongside Ralf Rangnick.
He described his role at New York Bulls as, “Developing customized training sessions with the intention of maximizing player development in accordance with season-long goals. Enhancing player motor skill development, technique and skill development and educating players on individual tactics, group tactics, and team tactics.”
Toronto Sun has described his role as a perfect complement to the coach by finding out the minutest changes that need to be made to change the team’s style of playing and come up with a definite response to the critics.
