Manchester United’s boardroom, along with the coaching staff and first-team squad, has seen a massive overhaul in personnel over the last year, particularly since Richard Arnold took over as CEO from Ed Woodward..
While there is still strong opposition to Arnold and the Glazer family among supporters, it is undeniable that the new club president has been far more proactive than his predecessor..
Chief transfer negotiator Matt Judge, chief scout Jim Lawlor, and head of global scouting Marcel Bout were among those shown the door. Another man is about to depart from the hierarchy..
According to The Athletic, Alan Dawson, Manchester United’s director of football operations, will be let go in the near future. According to the report, his departure is expected “in due course..
Dawson has been in the role since September 2017, more than a year into Jose Mourinho’s tenure at Old Trafford, but his time is running out.
According to the Daily Mail, the former Royal Air Force Squadron Commander worked as the “Commercial Operations Director, Director of Business Development, and Group Operations Director” from 2012 to 2017.
Nonetheless, Dawson has been assigned to oversee a special project with the English giants before his impending departure, though the report does not specify what this project is.
It’s also unclear whether Dawson will be replaced, or if football director John Murtough will be given more power in the boardroom..
