Ex-Tranmere boss Parry in charge of Man Utd player loans

Former Tranmere Rovers boss Les Parry is now in charge of player loan management at Manchester United.

Parry is the Academy performance manager and charged with the responsibility of keeping tabs on those sent out to other clubs.

He told Inside United: "I generally talk to them, definitely on Monday after a weekend and definitely on a Friday to find out whether they're playing.

“Then I go and watch a midweek game and watch a weekend match as well. The other staff go to watch games, particularly the goalkeeping coaches, but I'll attend a Saturday fixture and then, on Sunday, watch all the games before speaking to them to discuss how they've done. I also watch them train maybe once every six weeks.

“I'm quite fortunate that my background is in the lower leagues as I usually know somebody at a club. This is quite good as it means I can speak to somebody, usually the manager, to find out how our boys are doing."
