A few places reporting that Dan Ashworth is close to agreeing a deal to become sporting director. Ed has anything changed regarding this? Also, how is he regarded within his role compared to others within the industry?

{Ed002's Note - He remains an option if compensation can be agreed. He would be a reasonable option.}

Are they also looking to bring in a recruitment special-ist alongside him?

{Ed002's Note - Yes.}

Good Morning Ed002

Hope all is well. Is there a clear sum for compensation in these things or an arbitrary number the two clubs need to agree on.

{Ed002's Note - Yes, Manchester United will be told what it is, or may have been already.}

Whobin your opinion would be the best option?

{Ed002's Note - Paul Mitchell would have been.}

Ed002, "reasonable" option sounds like you feel there would be a better option, or am I reading too much into that?

{Ed002's Note - Paul Mitchell.}

15 Feb 2024 09:50:51
Ed is he definitely going to Roma?

{Ed002's Note - He is not interested in taking what Manchester United have offered him. Could be a huge mistake,}

Mitchell was the name that lots of us wanted for years and it would be great if he was brought in. I imagine he will not want to take the role below Sporting Director and rumour is he pulled out of the running a while back (maybe realised he was not being looked at) .
I am excited about Ashworth if it comes off however, one of the top in the position, appears to have a detailed knowledge of players all over the world. Looking at what he has done at previous clubs we should be excited by his appointment.
I would expect we also bring in someone below him on recruitment to form a strong partnership with Berrada.

{Ed002's Note - His knowledge came from the scouts and recruitment team at Brighton.}

Hi Ed002, do you think there is a chance of us recruiting any of that team from Brighton? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - No, they are largely no longer at Brighton.}

15 Feb 2024 11:24:23
Thanks for all info Ed002. Do you think Ashworth will return to Brighton to tempt Sam Jewell to United as head of recruitment? Seen rumours that Chelsea also looking to sign him….

{Ed002's Note - No.}

As Sporting director Mitchell woukd have responsibilities he hasn’t had experience in before. I think Ashworth is the best option for the sporting director role. He’s widely regarded as gold standard for the role.

A huge mistake by Mitchell ed?

{Ed002's Note - No, Manchester United.}

21 Feb 2024 15:06:25
Thanks Ed. I presume they are not giving him the position he wants.

{Ed002's Note - No - so he is not interested.}
