MANCHESTER UNITED are reportedly set to continue their overhaul off the pitch with the expected departure of their director of football operations.
Despite Sunday’s 3-1 setback at Aston Villa, supporters have been encouraged by the progress made under new boss Erik ten Hag on the field.
However, a number of changes have already been made upstairs at Old Trafford over the past year.
Director of football negotiations Matt Judge and chief strategy officer Hemen Tseayo have already departed the club.
That came after Richard Arnold was appointed chief executive back in January.
The changes also led to more responsibility being placed on John Murtough’s role as football director.

Andy O’Boyle arrived as deputy football director, Polly Bancroft became head of women’s football and Dominic Jordan was handed the job of being United’s new director of data science.

They report that director of football operations, Alan Dawson, will soon make his “expected departure” from the Theatre of Dreams.
He has occupied his current role since September 2017 but will initially “stay on to work on an unspecified special project”.
