Another senior Manchester United job under threat after latest INEOS Carrington visit



| Last Updated:


Richard Arnold has stepped down as chief executive officer of Manchester United after 16 years for the club just as Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s position as holding 25% of the club is confirmed.

Manchester United‘s theoretical radical change has started with Richard Aronld’s resignation as Sir Jim Ratcliffe continues to make radical changes to the club’s hierarchy.

The club have announced that Patrick Stewart will take over as interim CEO, in addition to his existing role as General Counsel, with Richard Arnold continuing to provide transitional support until the end of December. A search process will be carried out for a new permanent CEO.

Although Erik ten Hag’s job is not thought to be under any threat, Arnold’s job is not the only head that is likely to role, with football director John Murtough also expected to face significant scrutiny, and he may leave his role too.

Sir Dave Brailsford, who has found huge success within British cycling over the last decade, is expected to play a big role under Ratcliffe, and Brailsford has visited the Carrington training complex at least twice in the last few weeks.

This is according to MEN, who explain that Ratcliffe’s investment is expected to be confirmed “within a week or so”, with Brailsford expected to play a role that could greatly overlap with Murtough’s current jurisdiction.

“It has been an incredible privilege to serve this great football club for the past 16 years,” Arnold said upon the announcement that he would be leaving his role with the club.

“Through highs and lows, the constant has been the dedication of our employees and fans. I would like to thank all of them for their loyalty and commitment, and wish everyone associated with the club the very best for the future.”
