Manchester United CEO Richard Arnold has erupted at the club during conversations with disgruntled fans. Arnold was ruthlessly honest when calling last season’s “F *** King Nightmare” for the 20-time Premier League champion as he finished sixth in the standings – the lowest ever in his history.
Despite bringing in some new players, including superstar Cristiano Ronaldo and defender Rafael Verne, Man United had a season to forget. They fired manager Ole Gunnar Solskjr in the middle of the campaign before bringing in German Ralph Rangnik.
However, the club continued to slide under Rangnik, failing to qualify for the Champions League as well.
Some fans, frustrated by the lack of new signings, were planning to stage a protest in front of Arnold’s home, despite rivals Manchester City and Liverpool continuing to push their already strong squads.
Arnold was made aware of his plans and instead approached him, trying to reason with him.
“We’ve been burned by cash. We’ve spent a billion pounds on players, we’ve spent more than anyone in Europe. I’m not thrilled with where we are, it’s not easy and we have to settle this,” Arnold said in a video shared on Twitter. Was.
“You can’t go to our training ground and show me where those billion pounds are here,” he added.
Arnold further stated that he hates every minute of Man United’s 2021-22 season.
“I don’t think we’ve done well with the money we’ve spent historically. We’ve squandered a lot of money. Last year was a nightmare. I hated every minute of it, “he said.
However he assured fans that a new signature would eventually be signed under his new manager Eric Ten Hague.
“This summer, the money the manager and director of football wants is there,” Arnold said.
He also took a shot at former Man United CEO Ed Woodward.
“Do you want me to buy players?” Doesn’t it ring the bell? “He said.
He went on to say, “For the future, to invest in a new stadium and for that kind of material, for the £ 250m training ground, we have to do something, we have to bring in investors. What I need to do. I wish for the club – I should have more cash than now.
