Man Utd Sack European Scout Torben Aakjaer For Offensive Posts


Manchester United have sacked Denmark-based scout Torben Aakjaer for posting offensive messages on Facebook.

The club investigated after being alerted to the posts, which have since been removed, and have told Aakjaer his services are no longer required.

United said: “The club received evidence from the Guardian and has ended our association with Mr Aakjaer.

“Manchester United is an inclusive organisation and will not tolerate this sort of behaviour.”

Aakjaer had been employed by United on a casual basis since 2011.

His primary function was to attend matches and provide reports on specific players.
