Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has appointed Marcel Bout and Armand Benneker.
Marcel Bout is the only remaining member of Louis van Gaal’s backroom team,
The 53-year-old joined Red Devils in 2014 as the club’s opposition scout. And Manchester has given Marcel Bout the role of Manchester United’s head of global scouting.
The Mirror recalls: “The other members of Van Gaal’s staff left the club in the off-season, with first-team coach Albert Stuivenberg, goalkeeping coach Frans Hoek and performance analyst Max Reckers leaving in May, and assistant boss Ryan Giggs quitting Old Trafford in July.”
Armand Benneker, the former Dundee United defender has also joined United’s scouting network, which is in the process of an overhaul instigated by Mourinho.
Last month Bout was spotted in the directors’ box during the Manchester derby. The-47-year-old is based in Austria and was previously the first-team scout at Swiss club FC St. Gallen and spent six years of his playing career in the Netherlands.
