Aberdeen chief executive Alan Burrows has insisted they will give new manager, Jimmy Thelin, all the resources he requires to be successful at the club. 

Thelin, 46, will officially start his role in the summer, after agreeing to end his six-and-a-half year stay at IF Elfsborg. He has signed a three-year contract, with the Aberdeen board having to be patient to get the Swede over the line.

And during a Sky Sports exclusive interview with the incoming boss, Burrows was asked if Aberdeen's failure to finish in the Scottish Premiership top-six will have a bearing on what the Reds hierarchy can provide Thelin to spend when the transfer window opens. 

"I think we need to support the manager the best we possibly can," the Dons CEO said. 

"We need to assess the squad and have Jimmy assess the players versus how he wants to play and then try and give him as much help as we possibly can for the changes he wants to make.

"There are funds available to try and bring in some players in the summer to try and help Jimmy in that part and he can also go through the process of assessing what we have got here."

Burrows had previously emphasised the point that Aberdeen want to avoid having extensive rebuilds each season following 13 new arrivals last summer - but clarified Thelin will dictate whether we see similar numbers of incomings and outgoings this time around. 

"I think a lot of that will be down to Jimmy," he stated.

"We pay football managers to assess the squad and players and weigh it up against his beliefs and philosophy. What I would say is we have four or five players out of contract but we do have a lot of players in contract.

"So a big part of Jimmy getting the job now - albeit not taking it to the summer - is to give him a little bit of time, albeit from a distance, to access some of the players and how they will fit into his tactics and shape and philosophies and allow him to make those decisions.

"My belief is his first task will not only be to access the players but get that message across to the players about how he wants to play and how he wants his teams to perform, the identify he wants to have to his team and then seeing how they react and fit into that.

"Then we will take advice from him on different areas that will need strengthened or otherwise. I think there is a core of good players here and I would be excited to see what Jimmy can do with that.

"If you look at his record at Elfsborg in terms of delivering player development and bringing players on to a different level ultimately to trade on for big money. That has been a key part of the success he's had at his previous club and we hope he can do that for Aberdeen, starting with the squad of players we have at the moment."

Aberdeen have had three permanent managers; Stephen Glass, Jim Goodwin and Barry Robson, since they parted ways with Derek McInnes' eight year rein in March 2021. 

Veteran Neil Warnock also had a short interim spell in the Pittodrie hot seat - which ended with him stepping aside prematurely after failure to secure a single league victory. 

Burrows knows its time Aberdeen brought some stability back, and has urged the Red Army to be patient while Thelin "builds" his own team.

On that matter, Burrows commented: "What we hope Jimmy can bring to Aberdeen is similar to his previous clubs in Sweden, which is stability, success, player development, all the sort of aspects of leadership that you would expect to have in a modern manager, and we hope that Jimmy can certainly bring that to Aberdeen in the tenure he's going to have here at Pittodrie. 

"What Aberdeen have had over the last three or four years is volatility and what it needs is stability, because stability if you look at football across the world, breeds success. 

"If you look at all the most succesful clubs, certainly in the upper stage of their management team, there's stability of people, and that's what we need here. 

"Jimmy needs the same sort of patience, the same sort of backing that he's had at his previous clubs. If you look for example at his time in Elfsborg, it didn't start spectacularly well, but I think Elfsborg were in a period of transition themselves. But they were very patient with him and they were very loyal to him. 

"What he did on the back of that was deliver success for them. And that's the sort of inspiration we need to take here at Aberdeen. 

"Jimmy is a builder, he was given time at his two previous clubs, he's shaped really succesful sides.

"Jimmy's going to come into this environment and we need to back him, we need to be patient, the club and amongst the supporter basis, to give him the room to breathe and the room to do his job properly. 

"And we think if he can get those things then we've got a really good manager on our hands. So, everyone at the football club will certainly be giving him the best backing we possibly can to try and yield the best results for Aberdeen."
