Abdelrah Bulma of France’s ‘RTLSport’ reported on the 15th (Korean time)
“Mitchell is being discussed as a strong candidate to become Manchester United’s new sporting director.”
In addition, Sami Mokbel of Britain’s Daily Mail said
Dougy Friedman and Mitchell are among the contenders to be chosen as Manchester United’s new sporting director under Sir Jim Ratcliffe,” and Robin Baerner of Football Transfer said 바카라사이트닷컴
Mitchell will lead Manchester United.
I want Mitchell, and Lord Ratcliffe also wants Mitchell.”
‘British rich man’ Ratcliffe will soon take up a 25% stake in Manchester United. Although the board of directors has yet to decide
the prevailing expectation is that Ratcliffe will be involved in Manchester United’s operations in the future.
According to multiple British media outlets, Ratcliffe will be in charge of Manchester United’s ‘sports control’ going forward.
Immediately after his appointment, the most important thing he said was to appoint a sports director, and the most likely one at the moment is Mitchell.
Mitchell previously served as a chief scout for several clubs.
He made his mark at Milton Keynes Dons, Southampton, Tottenham Hotspur and Leipzig.
In particular, Son Heung-min was recruited during his time at Tottenham.
Mitchell later said in an interview with the UK’s ‘Football London’
Son Heung-min achieved good results at Hamburg and Leverkusen. In particular, at a big club called Leverkusen
he showed a thorough finishing ability with both feet. As we saw after the first season, we have no patience.
I could see that it was necessary.
Son Heung-min will be remembered as a great player in Premier League history,” he recalled.
After Leipzig, Mitchell served as technical director at Braganchino and New York Red Bulls, and was most recently director of scouting at AS Monaco.
Of course, there was disappointment in Monaco.
Malang Sar, Ismail Jacobs, and Jean Lucas, who were recruited over the past three seasons, failed.
However, he is raising expectations because he has been successful on the Premier League stage like Southampton and Tottenham.
Manchester United has had a series of failed recruitments recently.
After Eric ten Haag took over as coach, a huge amount of money was spent on players like Anthony
Rasmus Höirund, and Mason Mount, but his performance did not match that.
We are hoping that Mitchell will come as sports director and make some valuable recruitments.
