Mourinho's side have lost two of their four games so far this season and it is apparent they lack leadership on the pitch.
Sources have told ESPN FC that United will look to appoint a technical director to bridge the gap between Woodward and Mourinho but Van der Sar, who played at Old Trafford from 2005 and 2011, says he is happy in his current role as CEO at first club Ajax.
United could now make a move for the 21-year-old midfielder in the January transfer window, with Manchester City also interested in the Portugal global midfielder, according to The Sun. Ajax is my club and I would like to stay longer.
The Frenchman wants to coach in the Premier League and is waiting for his chance with a club like Manchester United, while at the same time the Old Trafford club know that Zidane with his credentials will not be available for ever. A job easier said than done, but one that surely must be the ultimate aim for United. Not good. The manager has them playing the wrong way for the fans.
Former United defender Parker has been left stunned by a PR disaster for the Red Devils, with players now boasting too much power and able to make a mockery of the long-term contracts they sign.
In an age where brand recognition is king, having a player such as Pogba, who is as easily recognised in New York, Beijing, Johannesburg and Jakarta as he is in Manchester, is a priceless commodity for United. "I would like to coach". They know where I am. "Then we would play creative football once again", Cantona said. "A good man. A good leader".
