Manchester United appoints Richard Arnold as CEO

Richard Arnold will take the team’s senior-most executive position post the retirement of Ed Woodward from the role of Executive Vice-Chairman.

The Premier League club Manchester United has announced the former Group Managing Director of the team, Richard Arnold, as the Chief Executive Officer of the franchise. This appointment would come under effect from February 1, 2022.

The former Managing Director of the Red Devils will now take the team’s senior-most executive position post the retirement of Ed Woodward from the role of Executive Vice-Chairman. The new signee on this huge opportunity said, “I am honoured to have the chance to serve this great club and its fans. I am determined to return that honour in any way I can.”

On the stepping down of Ed Woodward after nine long years, Joel Glazer, the Executive Co-Chairman of the franchise said, “I would like to thank Ed for his tireless work on behalf of Manchester United during his nine years as Executive Vice-Chairman and 16 years with the club.”

He further commented on this massive move and said, “We are now looking forward to Richard and his leadership team opening a new phase in the club’s evolution, with ambitious plans for investment in Old Trafford, the strengthening of our engagement with fans, and continued drive towards our most important objective – winning on the pitch.”

This decision was speculated as the veteran club revealed earlier in April 2021 about the stepping down of Ed Woodward from his current position. The individual was constantly criticized by the fans since 2013 despite his commercially successful decisions.

Ralf Rangnick’s managed team had some major developments in the past year. The club signed the legendary Cristiano Ronaldo from Juventus.
