?Manchester United have sadly announced that revered former youth team coach Eric Harrison, the man famously mentored Ryan Giggs, Gary and Phil Neville, Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt, David Beckham and so many other young players, has died at the age of 81.

"The Class of '92 was the pinnacle of his coaching but all the young players who came through at that time will recognise the contribution he made in their careers and the character he built in them.

United won the FA Youth Cup for the first time 28 years in 1992 and lifted the prestigious trophy again in 1995.

"If you wanted a teacher who would give you the right way forward, the right path, Eric was that man," the great Scot said at the time.

Harrison was diagnosed with dementia four years ago and is reported to have passed away 'peacefully.'
