John Murtough overruled Erik ten Hag on Aaron Wan-Bissaka exit


It was John Mertuve who stopped Aaron Wan-Bissaka from leaving Manchester United.

The disgraced full-back has been widely seen this summer as he would not be seen by new manager Eric Ten Hager.

But despite offers from West Ham and Crystal Palace and ten Haig favorites lined up to replace him at Barcelona’s Sergi Nordest, progress was rejected and Wan-Bissaka remained at Old Trafford.

We recently reported that this was due to the intervention above the heads of ten witches, but the identity of the makers is unknown. But according to sportsit was director of football John Murtough.

“Murtough encouraged the Ten Witches to reconsider Aaron Wan-Bissaka,” reports The Athletic.

“Ten witches could have let Wan-Bissaka leave West Ham or Crystal Palace for a small fee and the player’s family want him back in London.

“The agent representing Sergino Dest recently tried to reunite the former Ajax full-back with Ten Haag.

“But Ten Hag admits Wan-Bissaka has shown himself at Manchester United in the past as a very skilled one-on-one defender and believes work can be done to shape his attacking qualities.”

There was a lot of criticism in the media this summer that United gave Ten Haag too much decision-making power over transfers.

However, this may be an example of how his decision should have been supported, but not.

While United’s signings department may have improved since Ed Woodward and Matt Judge left the club, the fact remains that apart from the manager, none of the decision-makers are footballers. .

Murtough has a background in sports psychology and analytics, and CEO Richard Arnold’s is in finance.
