Marc Skinner introduced as Manchester United manager


Marc Skinner has officially been named manager of Manchester United.

It was reported a little over a week ago that Skinner would be leaving the Orlando Pride to return to the Womenโ€™s Super League. At the time the Orlando Pride said they had โ€œno comment on the situation.โ€

Three days later, Skinner stepped down as the Prideโ€™s coach. In the release, the team said Skinner is pursuing โ€œa coaching opportunity outside of the National Womenโ€™s Soccer League.โ€

Skinner joins the club on a two-year contract with a third-year option.

โ€œIโ€™m looking forward to working closely with the staff and this talented group of players,โ€ Skinner said in a release. โ€œItโ€™s an exciting opportunity to lead the team into what will be another competitive WSL season; I want us to achieve success together and our aim is to give the fans a team they can continue to be proud of.”
