Premier League giants Manchester United are set to appoint Charlie Brooks as their new director of communications, according to the Daily Mail’s Charlie Sale.
Brooks will begin his new role with the top-flight English soccer side in October, vacating his position as vice president of communications at US sportswear brand Nike.
The appointment ends United’s long search for a director of communications after Phil Townsend stepped down in February, calling time on a 14-year spell with the club to join Uefa in a similar role.
Brooks’ appointment comes during a difficult period for United on the pitch, with pressure mounting on manager Jose Mourinho after an underwhelming start to the new season. Some of that tension was relieved with a 2-0 win away to Burnley on Sunday, and the Red Devils will be hoping that result can kick-start a run of form when they return from the international break to play high-flying Watford on 15th September.
