Fettis explains leaving Man Utd for Middlesbrough

Alan Fettis has explained leaving Manchester United to become senior goalkeeper coach at Middlesbrough.

Fettis says he feels ready for the step up from academy coaching.

He said: “I think the stature of the club. Whenever I've been here with Manchester United's academy they've always been good footballing people.

“It's a really good football club and obviously the manager that has come in has done really well wherever he has been previously.

"I had a few deadlines with him when Dean Henderson was at Sheffield United and so I understand what he's about and how he plays.

“Like me, he's a good and honest footballing person, as are all of his staff. It was a big wrench to leave Manchester United after so long but I had ambitions to want to push myself a little bit further so it was a no-brainer really in some respects."
