His reputation was mainly built by building the foundations for all the Red Bull football stable, not just in terms of sporting achievement, but in corporate structures as well. The guy is probably one of the best footballing business brains out there.
Yeah he's also sort of considered the creator of the German pressing style. Red Bull were kind of setup as a production line rather than trying to be a dominant force when it comes to football their model seems to be a business one to develop players and sell them on for profit. They are obviously able to dominate in Austria with Salzburg but they've sort of hit a bit of a ceiling with Germany.
He's done a fantastic job but Utd don't need a build from scratch approach we need a steady hand to guide the ship as the Glazers are never going to handover control. As good as he is at his job I just don't see it working at Utd.
