Man Utd publicly post job ad for ‘first team recruitment analyst’ with ‘specific emphasis on keepers’ amid De Gea woes


MANCHESTER UNITED have posted a public job advert for a first team recruitment analyst with a “specific emphasis on goalkeepers”.

David De Gea has endured a horror season between the sticks at Old Trafford, making error after error.

Despite fighting to keep the in-demand stopper for six years, Man Utd could now sell the Spaniard.

Now it seems the Red Devils chiefs are actively looking to hire someone to help find the perfect replacement for De Gea.

That is in spite of the fact the club’s season is still going as they prepare to finish their Europa League campaign in August.

The role advertised if for a “first team recruitment analyst”, reporting to the “chief technical scout”.

The successful applicant will “contribute to the continued expansion and development of the recruitment analysis team, with the specific purpose of identifying players who demonstrate the potential to play for the first team”.

The first of many responsibilities is to deliver a “comprehensive performances analysis service with a specific analysis on goalkeepers”.

The job listing comes just days after De Gea’s latest horror show – in the FA Cup semi-final thumping at the hands of Chelsea.

The Spaniard was beaten too easily for all three of the Blues goals – and came after howlers against Tottenham, Everton and Watford this season alone.

Fans – and former boss Jose Mourinho – are now calling for Dean Henderson to take over the No1 jersey when he returns from his loan spell at Sheffield United.

Others have even wondered whether Sergio Romero should be given a chance as No1 having impressed in cup competitions.

In his latest rant, club legend Roy Keane said United must axe De Gea if they are to stand any chance of winning the Premier League.

Keane said: “I’ve never been a big fan of his. He makes far too many big mistakes that cost United points.

“We talk about recruitment, it’s a difficult part of the game.

“If Manchester United want to challenge for league titles, they need a better goalkeeper.

“They need a change. I don’t know what the big song and dance is about a goalkeeper.

“They think we have to stick with the goalkeeper for a bit longer than others because of something they did two or three years ago.

“The game doesn’t work like that. We’ve seen Liverpool get onto another level when they’ve improved the goalkeeper.

“What’s the big deal? If he’s not doing it, he’s making mistakes, then make a change. There are good goalkeepers out there.”
