Manchester United has confirmed that both interim chief executive Patrick Stewart and chief financial officer Cliff Baty are departing the club as part of INEOS’ restructuring. This comes as Sir Jim Ratcliffe and Joel Glazer address the new changes to the club’s hierarchy.

On Tuesday night, a club statement revealed that Stewart and Baty had mutually agreed to leave Old Trafford at the end of the season. Jean-Claude Blanc, chief executive of INEOS Sport and a member of United’s football board, will take over from Stewart until Omar Berrada assumes the position on July 13. Former INEOS chief financial officer Roger Bell will replace Baty.

Sir Jim Ratcliffe expressed his gratitude to both Stewart and Baty for their support and welcomed the idea of establishing a new management team for the club. Joel Glazer also thanked them for their dedicated service and wished them well for the future. Stewart has been with United since 2006 and took on the interim CEO role following the departure of Richard Arnold earlier this year.

Baty became the club’s CFO in 2016 and has been a member of the board of directors since 2017. Both join Arnold and football director John Murtough as part of the restructuring at United.
