Manchester United have decided to hire Richard Arnold as their new chief executive, bringing an end to their search for Ed Woodward’s replacement.
After calls from fans for his exit, Woodward announced in April that he would be leaving the Red Devils at the end of the year.
The club have been deliberating over the chief executive’s successor for the past four months, and they have finally found Woodward’s replacement.
According to Sky Sports, Man Utd’s group managing director Arnold will take over from the unpopular Woodward, and the decision could be officially confirmed as early as next month.
Arnold has fended off competition from two other candidates, both of whom currently work as executives at the club.
His announcement and Woodward’s subsequent departure – will continue the feel-good factor buzzing around the club, after the Red Devils brought back ex-player Cristiano Ronaldo the club again.
