Eric Harrison RIP

Sir Alex Ferguson says Eric Harrison was "one of the greatest coaches of our time" following the death of the former Manchester United youth coach, credited with developing their 'Class of 92'.

Harrison, 81, who was diagnosed with dementia four years ago, passed away peacefully with his family by his side.

After playing at Halifax, Hartlepool, Barrow and Southport, Harrison became youth team manager in 1981.

He led United to FA Youth Cup victories in 1992 and 1995.
