Manchester United appoints new deputy director of football

By Piyush


The Old Trafford club stated they have appointed Andy O’Boyle, as their new deputy football director.



O’Boyle, who was previously an academy coach at Red Devils, will work with football director John Murtough as the club continue their revamp.

United have just endured a sultry campaign in which they ended 6th with 58 points — their lowest in the Premier League era — and flunked to triumph any silverware.

“We are delighted to welcome Andy back to Manchester United to take up this important role in the club’s leadership,” Murtough stated.

“Andy has experience across all technical areas of football, from fitness and sports science to scouting and recruitment.”

He has had coaching spells with Liverpool and England’s U21s as well as lower-league sides Coventry City and Wrexham.

“I am thrilled to be rejoining Manchester United at such an exciting time for the club, as the first team prepares for a fresh start under (new manager) Erik ten Hag, and the Academy and women’s teams go from strength to strength,” O’Boyle stated.

O’Boyle’s recruitment is the latest step in a reorganization of United’s operations, with Matt Judge quiting as director of football negotiations whilst Richard Arnold was named CEO in January.
