Gary Anderson has revealed he will remain as coach at Manchester United despite speculation he will leave the club.
Anderson will lead the side until the end of the season, when he is expected to step down as a result of the appointment of the club’s new owners.
The 62-year-old said on Sunday that he had no intention of leaving the club, which has won five trophies since taking over from Sir Alex Ferguson in 2014.
“It is not a decision I made lightly, but after the way it has been going lately and seeing how well it has gone,” he said.
“The manager, Sir Alex, his staff, the support from the fans, all have been incredible and we’ve done a great job with that.”
Anderson has won six Premier League titles and two FA Cups and led United to three league titles and four Champions League trophies in his three years in charge.
“I’ve got a long-term deal with United and I’m really happy about that,” he added.
“This is the best time for me and I will keep working until the very end.”
United will start their pre-season tour of the US, starting on July 9 in San Jose, before flying back to England for their first match of the campaign on August 12 against Manchester City.
“We’re going to have a lot of time in the US to get to know each other, get to the players and then come back home to do what we do best, playing,” Anderson said.
