I think the tweet is grossly misleading. The story says we're not close to appointing a director of football/technical director, so we'll maintain the current system where Woodward, Ole, Phelan, Lawlor, Mick Court, Murtough and Marcel Bout take part in transfer decisions. "...Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and assistant Mike Phelan take an active part in deciding transfer targets, with chief scouts Jim Lawlor and Mick Court also contributing. John Murtagh, youth development chief, and Marcel Bout, head of global scouting, are also influential. Either Solskjaer and Phelan or the club, led by Woodward, can veto any signing. United feel the system works and while Woodward has spoken to several people about becoming sporting or technical director, discussions are yet to progress to a meaningful stage..."
