Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed that Michael Carrick, Kieran McKenna and Mark Dempsey will be staying on as part of his coaching staff at the club next season. 

Former player Carrick joined the coaching staff after retirement while McKenna from the U18s.

"They are all going to stay. I think that's important, that we keep that team going forward," Solskjaer told

"We do bounce off each other and they are some excellent coaches. Kieran, with his 32 years of age, you'd think he's had 32 years in coaching.

"Demps - I've worked with him now since 2011 when I moved back to Norway, he came with me to Molde. He's a Manchester United lad through and through, he came through with Norman Whiteside and Mark Hughes in that youth team. I think he was captain and he played once for the first team. He knows what this means.

"Michael - what can I say that no one else knows about Michael? When he came in, it was my last season as a player so I played with him for one year. He's a personality I can really connect with."

Solskjaer was appointed permanent manager in March.
