ITV’s commentary crew in Germany this summer will include Pien Meulensteen, daughter of former right-hand man Rene who worked under legendary Sir Alex Ferguson.

Her father, legendary coach Rene Meulensteen, has left her with a lifelong love of football. Between 2001 and 2006, Rene worked as the reserve team manager at Manchester United during his first of two stints as a coach. 

Later, in 2008, he was named Sir Alex Ferguson’s assistant manager, a position he held until 2013.

During that time, he led the Red Devils to their eighth major trophy which included four Premier League titles and one Champions League.  

Following his departure from the team, he attempted his hand at management, serving as interim managers of Anzhi Makhachkal, Maccabi Haifa, and Fulham.
