Manchester City’s Omar Berrada has left his position and is poised to become the new chief executive at rival club Manchester United. Following Richard Arnold’s departure, United has been without a CEO, and the club has now secured an agreement with Berrada, who played a pivotal role in City’s recent success both on and off the field.
A statement from Manchester City read: “Manchester City Football Club can confirm that Omar Berrada has resigned from his role as Chief Football Operations Officer at City Football Group. The club understands his decision to look for a new challenge and he leaves with our thanks and best wishes.”
Berrada’s move marks United’s first executive appointment since British billionaire Sir Jim Ratcliffe and his firm INEOS agreed to acquire a 25% stake in the club.
