Premier League side Manchester United has appointed Andy O’Boyle as deputy football director.
O’Boyle, who has previously held roles at Liverpool, England U21s, Coventry and Wrexham, will leave his current job as head of elite performance at the Premier League to join United this summer.
“We are delighted to welcome Andy back to Manchester United to take up this important role in the club’s leadership,” said Murtough.
“Andy has experience across all technical areas of football, from fitness and sports science to scouting and recruitment.
“This will make him a valuable addition to my team at Carrington as we continue to strengthen leadership and strategic planning across all our football activities.”
He will provide support to football director John Murtough in driving the club’s football strategy across the first team, academy and women’s team.
On his appointment, O’Boyle said, “I am thrilled to be rejoining Manchester United at such an exciting time for the club, as the first team prepares for a fresh start under Erik ten Hag, and the Academy and women’s teams go from strength to strength.
“Whilst it has been a privilege to serve the Premier League for the past five years, I can’t wait to get started at United and play my part in creating the right environment for football success.”
