Tottenham Hotspur man heading for Manchester United next summer
Manchester United will replace secretary Ken Ramsden, only the fourth man to hold the position at Old Trafford since the Second World War, with John Alexander, currently secretary at Tottenham Hotspur.
Alexander has been Tottenham secretary since leaving Watford for White Hart Lane in 2000. He will move to Manchester United to replace Ramsden at the end of the season. Ramsden has served in the role at Old Trafford for three years.
"I am honoured to be offered the chance to be the secretary at the world's biggest football club," Alexander told the Press Association. "I have a series of very hard acts to follow but I am looking forward to working with Sir Alex, David Gill and the team."

Gill, the Manchester United chief executive, described Alexander as the perfect candidate. The Tottenham Hotspur secretary represented Millwall, Reading and Northampton during his playing career.blog comments powered by Disqus
