Premier League: Manchester united confirms two scouts leaving

Jim Lawlor, Manchester United’s senior scout, and Marcel Bout, the club’s head of global scouting, have both departed the club, the Premier League club said on Wednesday.

Bout was part of Louis van Gaal’s setup at the club from 2014 and stayed on after the Dutch manager’s departure, while Lawlor was appointed to United’s top scout in 2014 after serving as an analyst since 2005.

Despite spending hundreds of millions of pounds on the current squad, United’s recruitment record has come under fire recently, with the club wallowing in sixth place in the Premier League, 22 points behind leaders Liverpool.

“Jim played a key role in the development of multiple trophy-winning Manchester United teams and was an important source of guidance to Sir Alex Ferguson and each of the managers who have followed him,” a United spokesperson said.

“Marcel has played an important part as an assistant coach and in the strengthening of our scouting capabilities in recent years.

“Jim and Marcel leave the club with our warmest thanks for their significant contribution and our very best wishes for the future.”

The club, which has yet to name a new head coach to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer since the Norwegians left in November, is not only out of the top four this season but also out of all cup competitions.
