REVEALED: Solskjaer welcomed back Keane, Giggs to Man Utd

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has welcomed back Roy Keane and Ryan Giggs to the club this season.

The Athletic reports Solskjaer has overhauled his backroom staff and hired head of data Andrew Meredith - who feeds information to coaches and players - while head of performance Richard Hawkins analyses the group from a physical perspective.

Martyn Pert, who has been at United since last season, specialises in keeping players who aren't playing fit and ensuring they are ready when called upon.

And in addition to securing experts on the training ground, he's also been keen to ensure there are people present who know the club inside out.

Former midfielder Keane - often critical of the club during his role as a pundit on Sky Sports - has come in to speak to the youngsters about their experience at Old Trafford, as has Wales boss Giggs.

The changes have helped lift the mood around the club, which now sit second on the Premier League table.
