LUKE FEDORENKO has been promoted to Head of Academy Recruitment as part of a restructure at Manchester United.
Fedorenko has been with the Old Trafford club for more six years. He joined in February 2017 as Academy Lead Scout (9s to 11s) and became Head of Local Recruitment in July 2021.
Prior to this he worked for Sheffield United alongside Nick Cox, who is Manchester United's current Academy Director. Fedorenko was Head of Development Centres and Academy Coach and then Head of Academy Recruitment 7s to 16s for the Blades, while Cox was their Academy Manager.
The restructure sees Dave Harrison, who had been Head of Youth Recruitment since January 2017, move to a new role focusing on emerging talent across Europe.
The changes were announced to United's Academy staff this morning. Some departures are also expected to be announced in the coming days.
