Ed Woodward will leave his role as executive vice chair of Manchester united on February 1st, 2022.
It was gathered that Richard Arnold will step up to become Chief Executive officer of the club same date.
“I’m 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.”
Joel Glazer, Executive Co-Chairman, 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.
“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.”
Woodward won’t be staying on in a consultancy role. He has a couple of board meetings to attend between now and the end of the season but that is all. He is yet to make a decision on what he will do next.
