Andy O’Boyle will quit his current post as head of elite performance at the Premier League this summer to assist football director John Murtough in guiding the club’s football strategy. O’Boyle will return to Man Utd 16 years after serving as an academy coach.
O’Boyle, who worked as an academy coach at United for 16 years, will leave his current position as head of elite performance at the Premier League this summer.
He’ll assist football director John Murtough in implementing the club’s football strategy in the first squad, academy, and women’s team.
“I am thrilled to be rejoining Manchester United at such an exciting time for the club, as the first team prepares for a fresh start under Erik ten Hag, and the academy and women’s teams go from strength to strength,” said O’Boyle, who has previously held roles at Liverpool, England U21s, Coventry and Wrexham.
“While it has been an honour to serve the Premier League for the past five years, I am looking forward to getting started at United and contributing to the creation of a winning atmosphere.”
O’Boyle has advised clubs on talent discovery and recruitment, performance analysis, sports science and medicine, psychology, and loan management in the Premier League.
He will complete his UEFA Pro Licence this summer and is also pursuing a doctorate after earning a master’s degree in sports science.
