Man United prepared to scrap Director of Football plans: report

Over the summer, there was ample talk about Manchester United possibly adding a Director of Football.

The Red Devils’ poor work in the transfer market over years gone by has fueled that fire, but according to the Evening Standard, United may have had a change of heart.

Apparently, United could scrap plans to appoint a Director of Football, and press ahead without the appointment of a transfer chief for one key reason…

United’s Edward Woodward has been so impressed with the contributions of both Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Mike Phelan in the transfer market, that the mood around the place has changed and the club may not necessarily need a DoF.

First and foremost, there’s more to being a DoF than just dealing with transfers. This position fills the void between the dressing room and the board. A strong relationship with both Woodward and Solskjaer could be key to harmony around the place.


Binning this idea off on the back of one successful transfer window probably wouldn’t be the wisest idea – particularly so early on in the season. There’s a lot of football to be played by these new signings, and although they’ve done excellently, it’s about longevity and continued success.
