The other option is the manager adapts to having one of the best strikers in the world, and sets up a system with him that works. I'm sure it's possible.I believe Ronaldo must sacrifice the amount of minutes he plays, or he will have to adapt his style. There isn't really an alternative, what do you think would be the solution apart from dropping him all together?
Definitely! Having him there to move things in the right direction and start laying the groundwork, approaching things in a holistic manner with an eye on the future will be really beneficial, as opposed to having someone come in to see out the season who could be fundamentally different in their approach and disconnected to the permanent manager who follows them, and would probably be focusing on their 6 months rather than having a vision past that.Yeah, also looks like he will play a role in which coach we will hire next. One more positive is (yeah i'm looking for positives) we won't be doing any short term deals just to get through this season. He will be part of the club for next 2.5 years so he might play good enough role in shaping the squad.
Will be interesting to see how the work rate changes for few of our attackers, especially Rashford, Greenwood and Sancho.
Yup - People should probably temper expectations for this season. This is all about giving the club some direction. I can't see how his influence wont be a good thing. He's instantly the most qualified football person at the club. Yes even more than SAF.I know him from his Bundesliga days quite well. More a squad builder DoF than a fantastic head coach, so I wouldn't expect any immediate fireworks. His sides are usually very disciplined defensively, I could even imagine him playing a 442 counter attacking style, he is not very possession orientated.
Apparently, we gave him a 2-year contract after this season as an advisor. Half measures, but I hope he can teach Fletch and Murtough a thing or two about how to pick the right coaches and players.
The decision making from the club has been getting and better for a few years now.Jesus Christ I dont believe it.
They actually have made the right decision?
This is exciting.
Maybe transition into DOF? I'm very excited about this. Hope he lays the foundation for Ten Hag and then moves upwards to do for us what he did for RB Liepzig.Really? Wow. Read that he’s a control freak.
what does a 2 yr consultant mean? We won’t listen and keep you on retainer but out of our sights if need be?

He has developed the most fascinating, captivating, efficient brand of football that you have seen in recent years. Thats what hes done.Hey look,
I like the appointment, but looking at his history - what has the guy actually won? Great playing attractive high pressure football but if he's not won anything then do his tactics actually work?
yes this corporate speak, companies do this all the time when executives struggle. Murtough is never going to let his title go or shows signs that he's needs help, hiring a consultant sounds much better than hiring a tutor. And we get to keep in house as an interim manager, in case the next one pulls a Moyes.What is this 2 year "consultancy" deal meaning? If it means he'll work in some sort of dof role I'm very pleased with that.
He's the proto-Klopp.Can someone detail what type of manager he is? What kinds of players and systems he likes?
Love this. Not sure if we have the right personnel for gegenpressing type football but should be excitingBrilliant news, followed him for a long time and no doubt his influence and style of play can be seen in the modern game.
Hopefully the coaches are shown the door.
