Hahahah. About the Director of Football, I hope it's true. But more important than hiring just a Director of Football is the fact that he is allowed to work like he needs to work, setting the scouting, communicating, negotiating structure needed for a system like that to work. It's not enough to sign Marotta and pay him 10M a year, if he then is not going to have any ability to negotiate, talk to the coach, know what's needed, etc. Totally wasn't directed at anyone pal, it just seems to be a consensus that they are making it up as they go along, i suspect many of the tabloids do to some extent but theres legit journalist who have good connections within the club and mostly get their reporting correct which leads me to believe something changed over night. And it looks like us hiring a DoF may be correct the BBC are reporting this. More details on the club's position after it decided to sack Mourinho: The decision was taken in the long term interests of club The club views the last few months as disappointing and unsettling. It felt a change had to be made It is unhappy there has been no progress in results or style, despite Mourinho being responsible for choosing all 11 signings It has accepted players and staff were not happy under Mourinho Mourinho wanted to work within his own structure - the club will be looking to add a head of football. That person would be in overall charge of the football side of the club, reporting to Ed Woodward Jay007, Txrt and MikeM 3 Quote Link to post Share on other sites
