Richard Arnold back working after leaving Manchester United



| Last Updated:


Former Manchester United chief executive Richard Arnold has taken a new job following his departure from Old Trafford at the end of last year.

Sir Jim Ratcliffe‘s 27.7% acquisition of Manchester United has seen the club make multiple high-level changes since the beginning of 2024.

Although INEOS concluded that they would keep Erik ten Hag as manager for the foreseeable future, the same fate was not afforded to many others, with former Chief Executive Richard Arnold and former football director John Murtough both departing Old Trafford.

Arnold resigned as CEO of the club towards the end of last calendar year, and he is set to be replaced by former Man City Chief of Football Operations Omar Berrada.

It has now been announced that Arnold has taken a new job, now working as CEO of Norton Motorcycles.

“I am looking forward to using my experience to assist Norton in maximising the opportunities ahead,” he said.

The new changes at United are filling the fans with hope that a proper footballing structure is returning to the club. Jason Wilcox will fill in the role of technical director, and Newcastle United’s Dan Ashworth will join as sporting director in the coming months.

However, Ashworth will only be able to start his role once United and Newcastle reach an amicable agreement to end his gardening leave early.
