Wilcox has become highly regarded for his work throughout the game, both at Southampton, and formerly with Manchester City’s academy.

This looks an important step for the Red Devils as they rebuild under new co-owners INEOS, who have sporting control even if they haven’t fully bought out the Glazers yet.

Many United fans have become dismayed with how things have gone under the Glazers’ ownership, so they’ll hope that these changes being made by Sir Jim Ratcliffe and co. can be positive and help the club move forwards.

MUFC certainly need to improve their recruitment, so hiring a technical director of this calibre looks like an important step.
