Manchester United revamp backroom staff.
René Meulensteen returns as coach for United staff.
After the dismissal of David Moyes, some of the United coaching staff have had thoughts about their future with the club too. Steve Round, Chris Woods, Jimmy Lumsden, and Phil Neville, all staff who David had brought him have officially announced their departures from Old Trafford with the appointment of new head coach, Eric Cantona.
The four of them had been instructed to announce their depatures, when replacements have come in. Eric Cantona has also had a move around with the Physiotherapists, and the Scouting team, bringing in higher qualified people to take over, meaning the majority of the current team will be leaving.
Mauro Tassotti, former AC Milan assistant coach will be the man to fill the gap of the assistant manager role at Old Trafford, Eric Cantona said Mauro is the best possible man for the job, and knows what he is doing when it comes to this sort of thing. Cantona also went onto say his reasons for bringing in such quality staff was to give each player the best possible chance of becoming a world class individual, on, and off the pitch.
The huge overhaul also sees former coach René Meulensteen return to the Old Trafford fold, after previously being dismissed by David Moyes. The fondness of the United players on René will surely increase the morale around the place.
Chief Scout Jim Lawlor has been given a new scouting team to keep control over. "To be the best, you've got to have the best.
" stated Cantona, "So scouts who are the best of the best are required at Manchester United, and so they have been.
" he added. The Red Devils have limited themselves to ten scouts as opposed to the fourteen/fifteen they once had, with only Antonio Lopez, David Williams, Nils Schmäler and Jim Lawlor keeping their places there.
Ryan Giggs has also been confirmed has a player/coach for the upcoming 2013/14 season, after refusing to become a full time coach.
