Talking about Fletcher forward of United’s Europa League Final-16 tie in opposition to AC Milan on Thursday, Solskjaer – who performed alongside the Scot for 4 years at Outdated Trafford – stated: “A number of months again once we have been making the ultimate choice, there have been a couple of different issues for Darren. We moved [former coach] Mark Dempsey to the academy and there was a training spot.
“If there was one factor I used to be positive of, it was “we can not lose Darren”. He has a historical past with the membership, he’s been introduced up right here from a younger boy to a Champions League winner and serial winner. His DNA is what we wish.
“He went away to different golf equipment and he’s received recent concepts too. He’s received a vibrant eye for soccer and following the event of kids.
“He can mix these two, doing rather less teaching and now he can have an affect on the opposite facet of it – recruitment, talking to gamers and promoting United because the membership he is aware of it’s.”
