As part of a significant agreement worth £1.3 billion, the lifetime supporter of Manchester United was able to acquire a 25% share in the club. The formal statement of this transaction was made on December 24th.
The fact that Ratcliffe is going to be in charge of the club’s athletic department has sparked excitement among the supporters, who are looking forward to big changes in the not too distant future.
Establishing a positive rapport with the new investors is becoming increasingly important for Erik ten Hag as he takes command of the squad in order to achieve his goal of repositioning the team among the top four.
“They want to work with me, and I want to work with them,” the Dutch manager said in an interview with the Daily Mail on Friday, expressing his excitement at the possibility of working together. The chats and meetings are going to take place; we will see what happens. I have not yet had the opportunity to speak with them because the schedule is so packed, but I will get the chance to do so in the future. I am excited about it.”
While Ten Hag is focusing on getting three points against Nottingham Forest on Saturday evening, the immediate objective is to win the Premier League for the second time in a row.
