Does that mean every European signing was a manager signing?
Do you realise what huge leaps in assumptions you are making with these statements?
You're the one that resorted to deflecting and whataboutery. Your bone of contention with me was the signings of Pellistri and Amad, and you especially took issue with what I said regarding the poor development plan for Amad which I also blame Solskjaer for.. And after providing you with evidence that Amad wasn't a Solskjaer signing, you've then followed that up with unrelated questions to the player you were originally discussing with me.
Yes, Simon Wells was a personal scout of Solskjaer and Solskjaer was pictured with Phelan scouting players at various different grounds. No other top club allows their head coach/manager to have his personal scout or allows him to go around scouting players which Woodward allowed both Mourinho and Solskjaer to do. That defeats the whole purpose of building a scouting network.
The above is why the club's football structure didn't develop to the requisite level and why it's extremely damaging to give such control to a novice like Solskjaer who in his almost 3 years at the club couldn't implement more than the transition based game style which saw us develop a style which ultimately never came close to challenging for the league.
And contrary to your accusations, I don't dislike Solskjaer and even supported him for a while when he made the claim about wanting to create a high pressing team 'like Jurgen'. But the truth is that unlike Jurgen, Solskjær isn't in Klopp's league when it comes to implementing the technical aspects of coaching on the training ground which correlates to the modern day reality of implementing a progressive, highly intense, attacking brand of football.
Klopp also joined Liverpool and didn't ask for his own personal scout like Brendan Rodgers before him , but rather he joined them and went about restructuring the club's existing football structure which was widely ridiculed at the time.
