Has United found a new technical director?
The bid by English Premier League outfit Man United to restructure the club has been proving difficult as the role of the technical director which has just been created is yet to be filled up by anyone.
The need for the restructuring came after former manager Jose Mourinho had a rift with the club’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward over transfer issues because some of the targets listed by the manager were not sanctioned.
This, therefore, called for a need to have new roles that will handle transfer situations and not get the manager directly involved in it.
However, it is claimed that the Red Devils have already identified Mike Phelan and they are ready to hire him before the opening of the summer transfer window.
Mike Phelan is a known and respected figure at the Old Trafford as he is currently working with the first team alongside manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
He is therefore set to be promoted by the team and could be replaced by Michael Carrick who will now act as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s assistant.
Mike Phelan is well familiar with Man United having worked at the club for many years. He has been tipped to understand the culture and policy of the club as well as the kind of players that would succeed at the club.
