Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says winning the Carabao Cup would be a "very, very big step" for Manchester United as his side look to make it fourth time lucky in Wednesday's semi-final against Manchester City.

Former Manchester United star Darren Fletcher has joined the first team coaching staff, the club has announced on its webpage.

Fletcher spent 20 years as a player with United, making more than 340 appearances for the senior team from 2003-15 after coming through the academy.

He returned to the club in October 2020, taking up the chance to coach the Under-16s.

Fletcher, who was capped 80 times by Scotland and also played for West Bromwich Albion and Stoke after leaving United, will join Mike Phelan, Michael Carrick and Kieran McKenna as part of Solskjaer's support staff.

In that time, he won five Premier League titles, one FA Cup, two League Cups, the UEFA Champions League and the FIFA Club World Cup.

"Darren has the United DNA running through his veins and he knows exactly what it takes to be a Manchester United player", United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said.

"He is at the start of his coaching career and his experience, along with his winning mentality, will be a great addition to the staff".
