To say that the absence of supporters up and down the country in the last year has been a negative, would be an undertstatement. With almost a full season now being played in silent surroundings, it seems a lifetime since the terraces were full.

But one potential advantage has been the unique insight to the sounds that are so often masked by the crowd.

Whether that’s players arguing with the referee, screams of celebration after scoring goals or the screeches of disappointment when games go against them.

Players and coaches were told by Premier League bosses to be monitor their language, with commentators apologising for expletives now common place.

But Manchester United coach Darren Fletcher’s outburst was one a lot more light hearted, but one sure to raise a smile.

He has taken his on-field passion into the dugout and is regularly seen celebrating and cheering when his side score.

And Mail Sport have reported that during United’s 9-0 win over Southampton, the Scot was delighted for more than one reason.

With Luke Shaw improving his contribution to United’s attacking unit, Fletcher clearly believes that is set to continue.

After the left-back set up a goal for Aaron Wan-Bissaka, the coach was heard shouting that he was in his fantasy team.

Shaw has four assists in his last three Premier League games, with Fletcher’s teams – real and fantasy – likely to profit in the near future.

The former midfielder has been a welcome addition to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s backroom staff, since he was hired at the start of the year.

And speaking after his appointment he spoke of his excitement of joining fellow ex-Red Devils Solskjaer, Mike Phelan and Michael Carrick in the dugout.

“I’m delighted to be back and excited to work with the staff: Ole, Carras [Michael Carrick], Mike Phelan and the rest of the coaches; the players, you know some fantastic players to work with at the beginning of my coaching journey.

“It’s a fantastic opportunity and I’m just delighted to finally be in today, my first day in a new job today. I spoke to Ole a couple of weeks ago and it’s finally getting things sorted to come in today.

“It’s been a unique experience. I’ve been a player but now I’m on the side, on the coaching staff, so it’s a little bit different. I’m buzzing and cannot wait to get started.”

He added: “Very quickly, they’ll get to know me and I’ll get to know them and be able to start putting my mark on a few and making a bit of an influence.

“You have to be prepared in a number of ways, not on the pitch but off the pitch and mentally, if you play for Manchester United.

“I’m trying to influence and impact on the team in a positive way, alongside the manager and the great coaches we have. Hopefully, I can add a small percentage that will propel us forward.”
