Man United set to announced Ed Woodward's replacement

Manchester United are reportedly close to unveiling a successor to outgoing chief executive Ed Woodward.

The 49-year-old, who advised the Glazer family on their takeover of the Red Devils in 2005 and became CEO of the club in 2013

has received constant criticism during his time at the helm

most recently following United’s disastrous attempt to join the European Super League.

Following the debacle, Woodward announced that he would leave his current role at the end of the year

Man United set to announced Ed Woodward's replacement

with his replacement expected to be Richard Arnold, according to Sky News.

A source told the news outlet that a statement confirming Arnolds arrival could be made within weeks

although the decision is yet to be formally agreed and he is reportedly vying with two other club executives for the position.

If Arnold is successful, he is likely to take on the title of chief executive rather than Woodward’s official title of executive vice-chairman.

After graduating from the University of Bristol in 1993 with a BSc in Biology, Mathematics

Economics and Accounting, Arnold spent six years at PwC

where he worked his way up to the role of senior manager before becoming finance director at GC Europe Ltd.

He then enjoyed five years as managing director at Inter-voice Group

where he says on his LinkedIn page that he turned the company from a ‘loss-making to a profitable business

something that will be music to the ears of United fans.

Arnold was recruited by United as commercial director in 2007 before assuming the role of group

managing director in 2013 and becoming board chairman of the clubs foundation a year after that.

after the only name of note who arrived was Marouane Fellaini as David Moyes tried – and ultimately failed

to continue the success of the Sir Alex Ferguson era.

Jose Mourinho also aimed digs at Woodward for not going after the players he wanted and moving too slowly to strengthen the squad.
