Manchester United Hire World's First Wheelchair-Bound Coach


Louis van Gaal has quickly transformed Manchester United a month after meeting his players, and the Dutchman has a new budding manager beside him - the world's first wheelchair-bound coach.

Sohail Rehman, 22, was invited to United last season but has now landed a dual role at the 20-times English champions.

United fan Rehman, from Keighley, West Yorks, became the world's first wheelchair bound football coach of able-bodied last year after passing his coaching badges - and after starting out with Sunday league teams, he set his sights on the very top level of sport.
