Manchester United end search for Director of Football

Manchester United are happy with their summer business and will not pursue the search for a Director of Football.

That’s according to James Robson of the Evening Standard.

The search has seemingly ended. Finito. No more.

While the new signings are hitting the ground running at Old Trafford, the results remain poor and players who needed replacing weren’t replaced.

How the club can look at that and say they’re happy with proceedings is beyond me. Especially when the squad is worse than it was a year ago!

The report notes how Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Mike Phelan were the main contributors to ensure United made the three signings of Daniel James, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Harry Maguire. 

Ed Woodward said the following at a recent shareholders meeting, as quoted by The Peoples Person – Manchester United blog: “A lot of the speculation around this role [Director of Football] is centred around recruitment, but we believe our way of working is the right one.”

United do not rule out improvements to the club structure, as per the report, which in itself is a bit hypocritical.

Daffy Duck would be an improvement on Woodward.

The fans are being taken for an unwanted ride with our emotions being played with each year. The Glazer family and Woodward, they’re the one. They don’t care about us or the football club.
