He has been in charge of Man United’s medical department for over 16 years. He has worked with Alex Ferguson, David Moyes, Luis Van Gaal, Jose Mourinho, Ole Gunner SolskJaer, Ralf Rangnick, and most recently Erik Ten Hag.
McNally will be replaced on an interim basis by Dr Jim Moxon while the club searches for a permanent successor. Moxon, who worked most recently as club doctor for Liverpool, will start working with McNally from this week.
