‘United’ In Market For New Director of Football?

8 years ago

United have had a nightmare summer, only spending £27.5m in the transfer window and the fans aren’t happy.

Confused? Yes, we are talking about that other ‘United’ from Manchester.

Anyway, Man Utd have got both a new manager in David Moyes and a new Chief Executive (why would anybody want one of those?) in Ed Woodward.

Damien Comolli, who was Director of Football at both Tottenham and Liverpool, believes there is one missing ingredient.

Talking to Radio 5 Live he said;

“If there is a club who needs a Director of Football it is United, it would ease the process for both individuals.”

How everybody connected with Man Utd must be looking green with envy up the road at St.James’ park, a club lucky enough not just to land a Director of Football, but actually the best one in the world according to Joe Kinnear himself.

I want to state here and now that as one of the extended football family, I can’t bear to see Manchester United in such a disastrous position due to the mismanagement and mistakes they have made. Calamitous decisions which could even see them tumble all the way to second in the table this season.

So just to ensure they retain their position at the top, I am prepared to allow that other United to have our top rated Director of Football for absolutely nowt.

A man who has every mover and shaker in the world’s phone number must surely be ideal for the tourist hotspot ‘Theatre of Dreams’. Though they may need a slight change with the word ‘Nightmares’ substituted with JFK’s arrival.

What is more in this spirit of magnanimity I am feeling, I will happily pick Joe up personally from his hotel and drive him down to Manchester myself, I’ll even throw in a gratis bottle of whiskey on the back seat as a fit and proper send off.

How on earth Newcastle United will manage without JFK is another matter but we’ll just have to take our chances, no way were we going to hang on to this world renowned Director of Football long-term.
