Man Utd chief Richard Arnold branded ‘stupid’
Manchester United CEO Richard Arnold has been branded a “stupid, gormless, wet-behind-the-ears buffoon” by Simon Jordan after his pub chat with fans last weekend.
The senior Red Devils chief met with a dozen fans at The Boot Inn in Cheshire after being tipped off about a planned protest.
Arnold, 51, admitted that the club “f***ing burned through cash” under predecessor Ed Woodward.
He was also filmed saying that the last year has been a “f***ing nightmare” at Old Trafford in footage that later leaked, to the disappointment of United bosses.
Speaking on talkSPORT, former Crystal Palace owner Simon Jordan slammed Arnold as “naive”, although co-host Jim White was more sympathetic.
Jordan, 54, blasted: “Richard Arnold sat in that meeting.
“If you are that stupid and that gormless and that naive and that wet behind the ears that you’re going to sit there and think that what you’re saying isn’t going to find its way into the public domain, even by a regurgitation of someone verbally giving back what you’ve said or someone recording it, what the hell is the matter with you?”
