Goalkeeper coach Emilio Alvarez leaves Manchester United

Goalkeeper coach Emilio Alvarez has left Manchester United, the club have confirmed.

The Spaniard moved to Old Trafford in 2016 to work with David de Gea. The pair also spent time together at Atletico Madrid.

Alvarez's departure comes after United appointed Richard Hartis as senior goalkeeper coach in the summer after spells alongside manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Molde and Cardiff.

"I would like to thank Emilio for all the help and hard work since my return to the club," Solskjaer said. "We all wish him well for the future."

The news comes just two weeks after United announced a new long-term contract for De Gea that could keep him at the club for the next five years.

"I will always be proud of belonging to this club," Alvarez said. "Wishing you every success in your endeavours."
