Manchester United have crossed over to poach an executive from Manchester City, their ‘noisy neighbours’. The struggling Premiership sides have announced the appointment of Moroccan-born Omar Berrada as their new chief executive officer.
Similarly, Manchester City have confirmed that Berrada has resigned.
Berrada’s start date will be confirmed in due course by Manchester United. Meanwhile, Patrick Stewart will continue as interim CEO.
Born in Paris to Morrocan parents, Berrada was the chief football operations officer for City Football Group, a global organisation which owns Manchester City and 13 other football clubs. He had previously worked for La Liga giants, FC Barcelona.
