Sir Jim Ratcliffe slams Man United's 'high degree of disorder' and calls IT department a 'disgrace' – Man United News And Transfer News



New Manchester United co-owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe has reportedly sent a scathing message to club staff and slammed the pathetic state of the dressing room and the IT department in particular.

Since Ratcliffe completed his 27.7% partial investment in the club, the focus has been on auditing United and identifying areas for improvement.

Earlier this week, Ratcliffe was joined by some of his close aides, including interim CEO Jean-Claude Blanc, at a meeting with United employees.

The people's person covered a report which claimed Ratcliffe had asked Red Devils employees to return to the office immediately as he sought to end the work-from-home culture at Old Trafford.

The Oldham-born billionaire is also said to have told United staff that his main aim is to return the 20-time English champions to the top of world football – a goal he aims to achieve as soon as possible.

According to The daily mail, Ratcliffe took a major issue with the state of a section of United's operations. He particularly deplored the state of the locker room and the IT service.

The newspaper said the British businessman warned that “disorder” would certainly not be tolerated under his regime.

Ratcliffe said in a note to all staff which was seen by The Mail: “I had a good two-day visit to Carrington and Old Trafford this week. As always, I was made very welcome. THANKS.”

“I had a good tour of some of the facilities. I fear I have been struck in many places by a high degree of disorder. Particularly the IT department which was frankly a shame and the U18 and U21 locker rooms were not much better.

“These standards would not be what we expect at INEOS and we are a chemical company. Manchester United is an elite sporting organization.

His note further said: “It is a small thing in many ways, but if an organization does not have standards and discipline, it will not be successful. »

He encouraged staff to redouble their efforts to ensure the highest standards are maintained at Old Trafford.

“I would be grateful in the future if we adopted proper housekeeping standards everywhere. It gives the club a bad image if we have visitors, parents of young players, new players and the media and they see that we don't care enough about keeping things tidy.

Nathan Salt points out that United have been contacted for comment on the story.
