Le Boss has said that he would walk away if his authority was undermined by a director of football. And I can't say I blame him either.
It makes sense for the manager to run the football side of things at a club and I include transfer targets in that.
I could never quite get my head around a director of football buying the players and expecting the manager to include them in the squad.
How can a manager plan for the future when someone else is involved? It can't work and causes massive conflicts.
West Ham and Newcastle are proving the idea doesn't work and who in their right mind would want to manage either of those clubs knowing you are constantly being over-ruled?
Keep it Goonerish.........
