The 45-year-old, who spent 14 years with the Robins, returns to Ashton Gate to work in the academy, overseeing the recruitment of players aged 13 to 21.

He told the club's official website: "This football club has meant so much to me over the years; I've put my heart and soul into it and it's great to be back.

"I've learnt a lot over the past eight years, setting up soccer schools for youngsters and scouting for Everton, even taking David Moyes to many games in Malaga.

"This new role is something that really excites me; it's what I enjoy most about football. Discovering good young players and pushing them in their development."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
