Jamie Carragher has lashed out at the Glazer family and believes that the Manchester United owners aren’t concerned with the club’s failure to appoint a director of football.
The former Liverpool centre half attributed the club’s inexperienced list of candidates to the executive vice-chairman’s ‘image over substance’ attitude.
He added that the Glazers are tolerating Woodward’s shambolic running of the club because the Old Trafford giants will make money regardless of performances.

Carragher wrote in The Telegraph: ‘Most recently we have witnessed Woodward acting like a United superfan, apparently meeting a series of club legends who might take on the position of sporting director.
‘None of those mentioned have any experience in such an important role in modern football. It smacks of image over substance.’
A number of former players have been touted for the role, including Rio Ferdinand, Edwin van der Sar and Patrice Evra – but the club have been openly criticised for not filling the vacancy after several seasons of poor transfer business.
‘Responsible owners would not tolerate this shambolic approach to running their club, leading to an obvious conclusion,’ Carragher added.
‘The Glazers do not care because United are making money regardless of what is happening on the pitch.’
