‘Good riddance’ – Manchester United fans in agreement as CEO Richard Arnold set to leave club

Arnold, who was appointed CEO in February 2022, replacing Ed Woodward, is expected to leave the club as Sir Jim Ratcliffe prepares to finalise Ineos&apos purchase of a 25 per cent stake in the club. The chemical giant is edging closer to completing a deal understood to be worth around 1.25billion.

As reported by the Manchester Evening News last week, Ratcliffe is understood to have held virtual meetings with United co-chairman Joel Glazer. They are believed to have discussed potential changes to United&aposs structure, including possible personnel changes.

Arnold&aposs expected departure will mark the first big-name exit of Ratcliffe&aposs plan to review the current sporting structure in place. Football director John Murtough is also thought to be at risk.
