Sir Alex Ferguson approves Manchester United’s new appointment


Legendary Manchester United manager, Sir Alex Ferguson, is backing the club’s decision to poach Dan Ashworth from Newcastle United, the UK Metro reports.

The 52-year-old is set to become the Red Devils’ sporting director.

With Sir Jim Ratcliffe now in charge of football matters at Old Trafford, the British billionaire is looking to rearrange the structure.

Omar Berrada has already joined from Manchester City, but Ratcliffe wants a sporting director to oversee all football operations.

Ashworth is United’s first choice and should he decide to leave Newcastle, the Red Devils will have to pay a significant compensation fee and wait for him to complete a prolonged period of gardening leave.

But, with Ashworth viewed as the best in the business, it will be worth the wait and it’s clear that Ferguson endorsed the move
