Manchester United have reportedly recruited top Polish scout Piotr Sadowski from Lech Poznan in a bid to strengthen their scouting network in Central Europe.
Manchester United were one of the teams to come out on the positive end of the summer transfer window. But, they are continuing to expand and bolster their scouting network. According to The Sun, United have snapped up Lech Poznan scout Piotr Sadowski in order to boost their scouting network in Central Europe.
Jose Mourinho looks like a man intent on building up the United squad, both for the present and the future. While the club has already seen their youth squads strengthened by the arrival of several gems from other clubs, the latest being Arnau Puigmal from Espanyol, United have now snapped up the Polish scout.
Sadowski called time on his job as Academy Operations Director at Lech Poznan to join United, wherein he has been named the head of Central Eastern European Scouting with a view to expanding the Red Devils’ coverage across the entire continent. The move was confirmed by Sadowski on Twitter, which was quickly followed by an official release from Lech Poznan.

“Thanks to Peter for over two years of co-operation. This was a period of important change in the academy which had a good effect and was successful. We wish him continued success and we are delighted that the experience he has gathered in Poznan has proved to be of great value to such a recognised brand in the football world as Manchester United.”
Sadowski himself was appreciative of his time with the Polish giants and expressed his admiration for the time spent at the club.
“I would like to thank all of you for your cooperation. Over the last two years we have been able to improve the functioning of the academy. Our greatest success at the time was the introduction of several academy’s first teammates, but also the infrastructure development including the construction of a pitch in Popowo.”
“During the last two years we have created better conditions for the players to work, among others. by opening the primary school of sports championship.”
United have already seen Javier Ribalta arrive at the club from Juventus after a highly successful stint with the Bianconeri. And it will be interesting to see what value these backroom changes manage to add to the club’s ongoing processes in the long run.
