Arnold to take over as Man Utd chief
Richard Arnold will replace Ed Woodward as Manchester United's most senior executive on 1 February.
He will take on the role from 1st February.
Woodward will not retain a consultancy position but will remain as a board member to the end of this season only attending board meetings.
"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," said United co-chairman Joel Glazer.
"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 is what I said on another thread lets see if the proof is in the pudding.
The early reports of Arnold is he has no interest in being involved in the football side of things he just wants to run the business side which is why they've appointed Murtough, Fletcher and potentially Rangnick to oversea all of that at a director level.
