Chelsea Chairman Bruce Buck Criticizes Giving Transfer Control to the Directors

You already know that Kevin Keegan and Alan Curbishley have resigned from their managerial jobs at Newcastle and West Ham respectively last month after seeing their control over player transfer being cut short. Both the clubs appointed its football directors to handle the players transfer deals and this made the coaches furious. Now, Chelsea chairman Bruce Buck has criticized this approach of the clubs to give all the control of player transfer to the directors.

Canadianpress reported:

"We don't support the model where the director of football buys all the players and dumps them in the lap of the first-team manager," Buck told the Leaders in Football conference at the club's Stamford Bridge stadium. "That does not work as far as we are concerned."

Tottenham Hotspur did the same thing too and now they are suffering from it. The players director Damien Comolli has handed to manager Juande Ramos has been struggling in the league so far in what Tottenham Hotspur has made the worst start to a premier league season since 1912. To be honest, I also agree with Bruce Buck on this regard.

It is the manager who controls the players as well as makes the game plans and team tactics. So, he knows very well what kind of players needed to materialize his plan in the field or what kind of players will be able to best suit to his style of football. So, the control over player transfer should be solely on the managers.
