Manchester United chief executive Ed Woodward making Sir Alex Ferguson inspired decision when it comes to appointing a director of football, according to the Athletic

There have been rumours surrounding United appointing a technical director, or a director of football due to the poor transfer decisions made in recent years.

One of the major criticisms Woodward has faced is his lack of football knowledge and the poor transfer decisions he has made due to this.

Current Ajax CEO is being touted as the very first director of football at Man United.

Former players such as Rio Ferdinand, Patrice Evra, Darren Fletcher and Edwin van der Sar have all been touted for the role, but it seems that United have decided to hold off for now.

During Sir Alex’s time at the helm at United, it would have been unquestionable to think there was someone above him making transfer decisions, and that philosophy seems set to remain.

It also helps that current manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made some astute signings in his time as manager, with Harry Maguire, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Odion Ighalo and Bruno Fernandes brining a positive impact on the teams.
