Former Bafana Bafana legend, Quinton Fortune, is about to land a dream job at his former club, Manchester United
Reports have surfaced indicating that the former midfielder will join the coaching team at the Red Devils.
The Telegraph reported that the 42-year-old will soon be announced as coach of the Under-23 team, along with former player, Neil Wood.
The move would continue the recent trend of United appointing former players in coaching roles, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer currently serving as manager of the senior team.
Former coach Ricky Sbragia parted ways with the club in May and Breifly.co.za understands that United have been looking at potential successors ever since.
Following the reports, the club made the news official via their twitter account on Thursday.
Fortune made a name for himself in the Red Devils strip alongside Solskjaer as the pair were loyal servants to Sir Alex Ferguson.
The pair kept in contact after their playing days and teamed up at Cardiff City when Solskjaer worked as manager and Fortune worked as the assistant manager of the Under-21 side.
