Manchester Utd need six big players, not a director of football – Scholes react to links to Ferdinand

Manchester united legend is not yet convinced that an appointment needs to be made above Ole Gunnar Solskjaer ahead of the vital transfer window for the club.

Paul Scholes considers directors of football to be a  waste of time and believes Manchester United should only focus on adding six big players to the squad rather than another part of the backroom team.

It is expected that very soon an appointment will be made at Old Trafford above manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The belief is that assistance with on and off field matters will help to make the Red Devils more competitive, with the club in need of another overhaul after falling short again in 2018-19.

Paul Scholes, however, is not convinced that such a position needs to be filled, with Solskjaer aware of what is required and more than capable of delivering on his remit by himself.

The Manchester united legend said on  BBC Radio 5 Live:  it seems like it will be a waste of time to be honest with you. I dont understand why clubs need a director of football.

If  you’ve got a manager, he’s the one who buys the players.

He’s got a chief scout, obviously, who will always recommends players and he watches them and then buys them.

A director of football role, for me, isn’t needed. It ‘s just creating jobs around the clubs that aren’t necessary.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his chief scout, over the next six weeks, would be best to move in together and nail down everything they want, watching videos, watching games, finding out what positions they need to improve, getting to know each other really well.

According to Scholes He needs five or six big players, he knows that, he’s not stupid and hopefully he can always improve the squad.
