They will need some new staff at Old Trafford…
It has been revealed that Manchester United have sacked their European scout Torben Aakjer after he allegedly posted several anti-immigration rants to social media.
The Red Devils have confirmed that they have terminated the contract of the Aakjer, after he had been suspended earlier in the day. The rants included calling a mosque a “conspiracy-potential prayer-shop”, and supporting the closing of Denmark’s borders. He said they should have, “extra personnel on every crossover and exit so all that eastern Europe dirt and sh.. can be kept out.”
The scout, who lives in Copenhagen, has been a regular visitor to Manchester in order to discuss potential transfer targets and has worked for the club since 2011. The North West side will now launch an investigation in to the matter, with chief executive Ed Woodward and chief Scandinavian scout Simon Wells in charge.
