Manchester United Football Club are ready to appoint a Director of Football, following an extremely disappointing transfer window.
That’s according to The Guardian, per The Metro, who says that the Red Devils are going to bring in the new staff role in reaction to signing just three first-team players over the summer.
While it’s great that the club are now looking into appointing a DoF, it does nothing for us during this campaign; which is hugely important to Jose Mourinho, particularly with the fans growing in anger and frustration at his methods and style.
Personally, I think it’s pretty clear that Edward Woodward isn’t a football man. He needs help in that regard. Let him stick to sealing deals for sponsors and official partners. Bring someone in who can work directly with Mourinho on acquiring and selling players. It seems a no-brainer.
I guess what’s done is done. The players and manager now need our full backing for the season’s remainder. We’ve started off on the right foot, if we can continue in the same vein who knows what can happen. It’s good to see United finally addressing a major issue, though, although I’ve no idea who they’ll bring in.
