Eric Harrison has passed away at the age of 81

Former Manchester United youth coach Eric Harrison has died at the age of 81.

Harrison, who was diagnosed with mixed dementia four years ago, passed away peacefully on Thursday surrounded by his family.

Harrison was in charge of Manchester United's academy when it produced the famous Class of '92, which included Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, David Beckham and Gary Neville.

Neville paid tribute to Harrison after he was awarded an MBE for his services to football in the Queen's New Year Honours list in 2018.

"He toughened us up and got us ready for our long careers in football," said Neville.

"He very much guided us, in those early days, on the football pitch and off the football pitch in terms of what we needed to do."
