Man United appoint Nicky Butt as new head of academy.

Nicky Butt has been announced as the new head of Manchester United academy.

The 41-year-old, who won six Premier League titles under Sir Alex Ferguson’s reign, is a graduate of the Red Devils’ academy himself, having come through the ranks as a part of the Class of '92.

"It’s a privilege to take on this role," the former England midfielder said, as reported.

"As someone who learned his trade in the United youth set-up, it’s a huge honour now to be given the chance to lead the Academy and to instil its values and attitudes to continue to create future generations of Manchester United players.

"It’s a big challenge but I am fortunate to be taking over a dedicated, first-class team. Our aim remains the same – to keep supplying the first team with well-coached, rounded players that understand the responsibility of playing for the biggest club in the world."
