Adam Asghar: Dundee United confirm imminent departure of coach and sporting director's son

Adam Asghar will leave his position as first-team coach of Dundee United after Saturday’s match against Motherwell, the Tannadice club has announced.

The son of United’s current sporting director Tony, Asghar joined the club in 2019 as head of professional performance before making a step up into the first-team coaching set-up.

However, he will leave United this weekend, just days after manager Jack Ross was sacked following a 9-0 defeat by Celtic and a dreadful start to the season.
