Manchester United technical director Darren Fletcher has reportedly been playing peacemaker between interim boss Ralf Rangnick and the club’s players. Rumours of dissatisfaction at United have been well speculated, with the German manager said to be frustrated that the squad has been unable to perform in his desired pressing style.
The feeling is reportedly mutual though, with many of United’s players said to be growing disillusioned with Rangnick’s coaching methods, as well as being confused with the reliance on assistant manager Chris Armas to lead many of the sessions at Carrington. As a result, Fletcher is said to be bridging the gap between playing staff and coaching staff according to The Sun, with the former United midfielder said to be well respected by both sides.
Manchester United director Darren Fletcher is a big fan of Aston Villa midfielder John McGinn. This is according to journalist Pete O’Rourke who said this in a chat with GiveMeSport. Darren Fletcher has become an increasingly influential figure at Manchester United and he’s a big fan of McGinn who’s a top top performer for both the Scotland senior national team and Premier League side Aston Villa.Darren Fletcher knows a lot about McGinn having played together with him for Scotland.
McGinn has previously been linked with a £50m move to Manchester United and he’s regarded as an untouchable in the Aston Villa squad under manager Steven Gerrard. The Scottish midfielder has missed just two Premier League games since the start of last season to show his importance to the Villa squad. His importance to the squad increased this summer following the expensive exit of former skipper to Manchester City.
English Premier League giants Manchester United started their UEFA Champions League campaign in a rather disastrous fashion after losing their maiden fixture of the campaign by 1-0 away in Switzerland against Young Boys. The Red Devils were the ear favorites to win the tie by a far margin but they were very underwhelming in what was a lackluster performance from the whole team even after taking the lead as early as in the 13tg minute through a brilliant finish from Cristiano Ronaldo following a sublime outside-the-boot cross from fellow Portuguese international star Bruno Fernandes.
It was Ronaldo’s third goal in two games after his brace against Newcastle at the weekend in the English Premier League but it was not enough to help them get even a point.
A lot of Manchester United fans didn’t understand the respective roles of both Darren Fletcher and John Murtough at the club. Darren Fletcher is the technical director at Manchester United, while the aforementioned Murtough is the director of football at Old Trafford.
Manchester United fans didn’t know much about the roles of Fletcher and Murtough until this summer. The two officials played a big part as the Red Devils made a breakthrough in the transfer of Jadon Sancho from German Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund. Manchester United are on course to wrap up a £73m deal for England international Sancho with an official confirmation expected in a matter of days.
Darren Fletcher showered high praise on Leeds United midfielder MatheusKlich after his impressive display in the win over home team Burnley earlier this month. Darren Fletcher was on BT Sports to cover the game via commentary and he was delighted with the contribution of Klich in the thumping win over the Clarets.
According toDarren Fletcher, Klich took his goal very well. Fletcher described the goal from the Polish international as excellent and that the player produced a wonderful finish to give his team the lead. He waxed lyrical about Klich while he was on Premier League commentary duty for BT Sports.
Manchester United technical director Darren Fletcher was in the stands as Manchester City u23s thrashed the Red Devils in the derby played on Friday. Scotsman Darren Fletcher was on hand to witness Manchester City beat Manchester United 3-0 at home in one of the latest set of games in Premier League 2.
Darren Fletcher was appointed the technical director at Manchester United earlier this season and he even had to show his displeasure during the one-sided game. The former Manchester United player had to tell winger Anthony Elanga to be quicker and more direct in his play.
