Eric Harrison, the former youth team coach of Manchester United's Class of 92, has died aged 81.

In a statement, the club said: "Manchester United is extremely saddened to report that our former youth coach Eric Harrison passed away on Wednesday.

"Not all of them made it but the five (Beckham, Giggs, Scholes, Butt and Gary Neville), who epitomised the work he did, are a testimony to the work he did."



His greatest success came under Sir Alex Ferguson with the Class of 92 players forming the backbone of United's treble-winning side of 1999.

Harrison, who forged the fledgling careers of David Beckham, Ryan Giggs, Nicky Butt, Paul Scholes and Gary and Phil Neville, was diagnosed with dementia four years ago.

Gary Neville wrote on Twitter: "We've lost our mentor, our coach and the man who made us.

"Everyone at Manchester United sends their deepest condolences to Eric's family and friends at this sad and difficult time."
