Manchester United have been seeking a director of football for some time now but nothing has happened. No wonder players are thinking twice about joining
Spare a thought for Ed Woodward. As if Paul Pogba issuing a come-and-get-me plea so unsubtle he might as well have jumped out of a cake in the shape of the Bernabu was not distracting enough, now there are claims that Manchester Uniteds executive vice-chairman is having trouble with an unruly director pushing for Steve Walsh to fill the director of football role at Old Trafford.

You can understand Woodwards reservations. On the one hand Walsh is the man credited with bringing NGolo Kant and Riyad Mahrez to Leicester City. On the other he took the blame for a splurge that resulted in Everton starting the 2017-18 season with 473 creative midfielders and ending it with supporters urging Sam Allardyce to eff off, which is something Walsh might want to gloss over at his next job interview.
Back to that insubordinate director, though. Just who is Sir Alex Ferguson anyway? And how many commercial deals has he got over the line? The internet offers few clues, though it does suggest this Ferguson character held some kind of important role in Uniteds football department for quite a long time, only for it to all end in tears when he provided David Moyes with a glowing reference. Honestly. To think they made him a knight of the realm.
Best to leave it to Ed the Red, then. Until United do appoint a director of football, that is. Only, werent they supposed to have had one in place by now? In fact they were talking about recruiting one for the first time in their history as long ago as last summer, back when Jos Mourinho was delivering sales pitches like Don Draper, albeit a heavily concussed Don Draper, as he merrily explained why nobody should attend his sides pre-season friendlies.
