Man Utd coach Phelan open to continue CCM role

Manchester United assistant coach Mike Phelan would like to continue his association with Central Coast Mariners.

The Englishman has continued to operate as sporting director of the A-League club since becoming part of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's backroom staff in December.

Speaking on the FOX Football Podcast, Phelan said: "It's just a case of how things develop over the next couple of months.

"It's a busy time for Manchester United obviously, but the season is coming to an end in Australia so I think once decisions are made back over in England then I think we'll open those discussions again with the Mariners and hopefully the partnership can continue.

"I think it's a good one; it's a nice one to be able to be associated with the Mariners, and obviously an association for the Mariners with Manchester United is always a nice thing.

"It's all down to if's and but's right now, but I certainly would like to keep my interest at the Mariners."
