Manchester United’s Executive Shake-Up: Two More Top Leaders Exit Amid Ongoing Restructuring

The departures of Patrick Stewart and Cliff Baty from Manchester United mark continued boardroom changes under Jim Ratcliffe’s leadership. These moves have been confirmed by the club on their official website and are part of a broader clearout strategy.

Patrick Stewart, the interim chief executive, will soon be replaced by Jean-Claude Blanc until Omar Berrada joins in July. Similarly, Roger Bell will take over the role of chief financial officer from Cliff Baty, who is also departing the club.

These changes come after Ratcliffe’s recent acquisition of a significant stake in the club, giving him control over key footballing decisions. Bell and Blanc, both with ties to INEOS, will play crucial roles in United’s new management structure.

Ratcliffe expressed gratitude to Stewart and Baty for their contributions to the club. Joel Glazer echoed this sentiment, acknowledging their dedicated service and wishing them well in future endeavors.

Manchester United has made additional changes behind the scenes, with John Murtough stepping down as football director and Dan Ashworth lined up as his replacement. Jason Wilcox has also been appointed as technical director, reflecting a broader restructuring effort.

As the club navigates these changes, questions loom over the future of manager Erik ten Hag. With only four games remaining in the Premier League season, United faces uncertainty under the new regime.
