Dundee United has recently announced that Tony Asghar, the club’s sporting director, has left his post. This news comes soon after the club sacked their manager, Liam Fox, on Sunday evening. Asghar’s departure from the club will allow for a new first-team manager to be appointed within a restructured football department.
Dundee United is currently facing a difficult situation as they sit four points adrift at the bottom of the Scottish Premiership table. Asghar’s resignation has come as a surprise, especially since he has spent over four years at the club. In a statement, the club said that they will now start the process of hiring a new manager and aim to provide an update during the week. The statement also indicated that the club would not comment further on the matter at this time.
Asghar has been facing increasing pressure from the club’s fans, who have been calling for his dismissal. During the recent match against Ross County, the fans were chanting for his sacking. The pressure on him had escalated further after the club’s recent AGM, where fans protested outside Tannadice and called for him to leave the club.
Dundee United will be hosting Aberdeen on Saturday night, and it remains to be seen how they will fare in their upcoming matches.
