Manchester United football director John Murtough set to leave Old Trafford

John Murtough is set to leave his role as Manchester United’s football director as Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s restructure of the hierarchy at Old Traffordcontinues.

The Manchester Evening News revealed in November that United were planning to replace Murtough,with Ratcliffe’s acquisition of a minority stake set to be confirmed. Murtough was appointed as United’s inaugural football director in March 2021 and oversaw the appointment of Erik ten Hag from Ajax, which preceded a successful 2022/23 campaign.

However, United have regressed this season, and recruitment has continued to be criticised during Murtough’s time as football director. The 53-year-old joined the club from the Premier League 10 years ago, and he’s set to be replaced by the incoming Dan Ashworth.
