Dan Ashworth, Newcastle’s sporting director, has stated that despite his connections to Manchester United, he is content at St. James’ Park.

Since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement in 2013, United has spent more than £1 billion on transfers, but the team hasn’t been able to launch a credible fight for the Premier League title during that time.

The selection of John Murtough as football director in March 2021 was seen as a positive development, as United’s hiring practices have come under close scrutiny.

 

However, Erik ten Hag has spent more than £400 million in his time there, and the manager has a significant say in the hiring process.

“I’ve known him and Phil [Neville] since they were in England. Thank you, Gary; he’s written some very wonderful things.”

When questioned about his ties to United, Ashworth responded, “I think it’s the same situation as Eddie [Howe].” I’m overjoyed; the city, club, and project are all excellent. I’m fully engrossed in tackling each of those tasks and finding the challenge to be enjoyable.”

Regarding Newcastle’s intentions to challenge the current elite, Ashworth went further, saying, “The next number of years is to fight and get into the top six on a regular basis and compete for trophies.” Naturally, we hope to compete as much as possible in the Champions League in the upcoming years, but it will be very challenging.

“It’s hazardous to be complacent, isn’t it? There’s definitely no room for complacency here; we want to keep pushing and striving. Whether it is with our academy starting with the under-9s, the women’s first team, or enhancing the player care and psychology inside the team.

“We need to keep working, whether it’s by upgrading the training area. You’re done for good in professional sports if you start to stagnate. It’s important to keep driving and pushing.
