Guardiola Warns Manchester United: Omar Berrada Alone Won’t Fix Everything

Manchester City Manager Cautions Rivals That New CEO Won’t Automatically Close the Gap

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has issued a cautionary statement to Manchester United, emphasizing that the recent appointment of executive Omar Berrada as their new CEO won’t automatically solve all their problems.

Omar Berrada, who served nearly 10 years at Manchester City, recently made the switch to Manchester United as part of the first major move since Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s involvement with the club.

While Berrada’s move is viewed as a significant coup for Manchester United, Guardiola suggested in a press conference that the impact of this appointment alone may not be enough to close the gap with Manchester City. Guardiola stated, “Maybe United thinks with this person everything is going to change. Congratulations. I don’t know if this is going to happen.”

He continued, “I don’t know if [by] doing this [clicks his fingers] everything is going to be sorted and it works. If it does happen then, oh my god, they have to make a stand for Omar Berrada in the future because he’d deserve it.”

Omar Berrada played a pivotal role in Manchester City’s off-field operations, serving as the chief operating officer at the Etihad Stadium before being promoted to the role of chief football operations officer at City Football Group in 2020.

Guardiola acknowledged that Berrada’s departure will be felt at Manchester City but expressed confidence that the club will “move on” despite the significant loss.
