Manchester United’s vice chairman Ed Woodward recently met with the side’s former defender Rio Ferdinand to discuss terms on becoming the side’s new technical director.
Rio Ferdinand is one of the candidates that vice-chairman Ed Woodward is eyeing for the appointment of technical director for Manchester United. The job will include the planning of the United’s first team strategy for the years to come.
The 40-year-old was the teammate of the current United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjær, for five years from 2002, and both share a mutual respect between themselves. Ferdinand himself has played 12 years for the club that as seen him win 6 premier Premier League titles and a Champions League trophy.
He is currently among several people that are under Woodward’s radar for the post. It is being said that Mike Phelan, who is currently the side’s assistant manager is unlikely to be considered for the job. Ferdinand currently works as a pundit for BT Sport.
