Man United appoints Berrada as CEO

MANCHESTER United appointed Omar Berrada as its new chief executive officer (CEO), the club said in a statement on Saturday.

Mr. Berrada’s start date will be confirmed in due course, while Patrick Stewart will continue as interim CEO.

“The Club is determined to put football and performance on the pitch back at the heart of everything we do. Omar’s appointment represents the first step on this journey,” the club said.

Mr. Berrada, regarded as one of the most experienced executives in European football, currently holds the position of Director of Football Operations at City Football Group, where he oversees 11 clubs across five continents. He previously held senior positions at Barcelona.

In addition, British billionaire Jim Ratcliffe acquired a minority stake last year, signaling a new beginning in the club’s turnaround plan. — Reuters
