Manchester United have overcome the manager’s problem after firing Jose Mourinho, and then appointed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to become the Interim manager until the end of the season, but according to the club’s legend, Garry Neville, his former club still has to find a transfer expert, because it’s very important for United to attract the right players in the transfer market.
As is known, Manchester United had fired Jose Mourinho at the beginning of last week, and after less than 24 hours, they officially appointed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Initially, many doubted the capacity of the former Cardiff City coach, but in fact in his first match against the former club, Solskjaer managed to deliver United to a landslide victory 1-5.
The big victory seemed to silence the doubters, even the club’s legend, Gary Neville considered that Manchester United had found a good solution in the manager’s seat. It’s just that, for the former Valencia coach, there is something that needs to be addressed from his former club. Neville feels United need to bring someone who is an expert in the field of transfer, so that they can recruit the right players, because according to Neville at this time United do not have a figure who is an expert in the field.
“Ole’s work in the next six months is as the head coach, head of scout, head of recruitment and ensuring he gets good information from the recruitment department for what the club needs,”
“My concern for 3-4 years is who will bring in players. The sector [player recruitment] needs to be overhauled and I’m sure the club in the next six months will appoint the right people, classy figures who can carry out this job. Manchester United must start doing it right [regarding player transfers], otherwise they will have difficulties. But yesterday’s results [against Cardiff City] were a good start,” told Neville to Sky Sports’ Gary Neville Podcast.
For information, currently Manchester United only relies on the CEO, Ed Woodward, to work also in the field of transfers. The victory over Cardiff yesterday did not necessarily change the position of MU ranked 6th in the standings.
