Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said he is prepared to work with a technical director to “split responsibilities”.
After Jose Mourinho’s dismissal, Manchester United sources made it clear that the club was looking at a change in its structures and a technical director would be brought in to tackle all major footballing decisions.
Even after Solskjaer’s permanent appointment recently, it is believed that those plans still stand.
Ole said, “I’m happy talking and discussing football with knowledgeable people in the right positions,”
“The demands of football nowadays mean you definitely have to split responsibilities.”
Former Spurs and Southampton head of recruitment Paul Mitchell has been linked with the role.
Ole continued, “More than 100 years ago, managers used to be the club secretaries as well.
“But things change. I have an input in most of the things now and will give my advice of course but I am not the one who decides.
“A manager can’t do as much as he used to do when my gaffer [Sir Alex Ferguson] started, for example.
“Me and Ed [Woodward] and Joel [Glazer], we are looking at how can this club be run as smoothly and as well as possible.”
