Man United technical director search

General view of Manchester United's Old Trafford taken August 2018

Following years of underachievement since Sir Alex Ferguson retired in 2013, Manchester United have set the wheels in motion to completely restructure behind the scenes this summer.

A new technical director has been lined up to work closely with executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward and manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Former United players Rio Ferdinand, Paul Scholes and Edwin van der Sar are among those to have been linked with the newly-created position, while current assistant Mike Phelan is also expected to take on a similar role behind the scenes.
