Rene Meulensteen will see his role watered down at Manchester United should he remain.

The Daily Star Sunday says new United boss David Moyes has cleared the way for his own staff to arrive at United with the departures of Fergie's assistant Mike Phelan and goalkeeping coach Eric Steele.

First-team coach Rene Meulensteen has the option to remain at United in a reduced role but it is thought he will go, too.

Alan Irvine, Jimmy Lumsden and goalkeeping coach Chris Woods are in the frame to arrive and Ryan Giggs is lined up for a staff position, while still playing occasionally.
