If Jason Wilcox is our new technical director, where does that leave our present technical director Darren Fletcher?

Technical, is not something I would use to describe Darren Fletcher. The days when he was stuck on the bench alongside RR have gone, so let's see what happens to Darren.

On Sky Sports;

"John Murtough stepped down as football director at Old Trafford last week but it is understood Darren Fletcher will continue to play a key role in the football leadership team working across the men's first team and academy. "

Thanks Fizz

Fletcher is a good club man, but could not see him as a technical director.

From what I understand of the situation is that it seems that the new structure will be something like this:

CEO - Omar Berrada

DoF - Dan Ashworth - responsible for the overall footballing operations at the club, reporting to Berrada.

Technical Director - Jason Wilcox - responsible for developing and building the playing squad. he will liaise with scouts, data analysts, the coaching staff and the academy staff to plan and develop the first team squad. Effectively it'll be his job to make sure the club has a squad capable of challenging and playing in the style that the club wants. Which players need to be moved on and when, which players to sign, and which players to promote and when.

Darren Fletcher from what has been suggested will work along side Nick Cox, Jason Wilcox and the first team manager to help bridge youth players into the first team. Leaning on his experience of what its like to make that jump, and informing those around them about what is needed.

I don't profess to knowing exactly what any of these individuals may or may not end up doing within their roles. But going on that assessment Shappy if Wilcox is to be the guy overseeing transfer targets and the ins/ outs, it's vital that person is in place now. Although tbf, last week without any of these guys being on the payroll, EtH suggested transfer plans were decided so who knows.

Should be good to have Fletcher being in contact with the youth team players, instill in to them the attitude needed to play for United, Wilcox I think will be a great appointment.

The main thing that needs to be done is sign players who want to play for the club and not just come for the big pay packet, sign players with the right attitude, players that will run through brick walls for the club.

United have a bigger scouting network than most clubs it needs to be used properly, I think the upcoming appointments to the backroom are big step in the right direction.
