Manchester United have hired former Blackburn Rovers striker Benni McCarthy as a first team coach.

The 44-year-old was pictured at United’s Carrington training base on Saturday and is set to join Erik ten Hag’s backroom staff immediately with a view to working with the club’s forwards.

McCarthy, a former South Africa international, won the Champions League under Jose Mourinho’s management during his time at Porto and enjoyed a productive spell at Rovers during Mark Hughes’ time at Ewood Park.
