Kieran Maguire shreds 'dangerous' Man United plan as Hemen Tseayo news emerges

Man United are playing a “dangerous” game by allowing so many executives to leave at once.

That is the view of finance guru Kieran Maguire, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about the mass departures behind the scenes at Old Trafford.

As relayed by the Daily Mail last Friday (13 May), head of corporate finance Hemen Tseayo and chief of staff Patrick Coyle are the most recent figures to quit.

Ed Woodward was replaced as CEO by Richard Arnold in January, and there have been numerous departures from the sporting department too.

Maguire argues that the apparent plan to totally overhaul the executive ranks is a risky strategy from the Glazers.

“It does feel like these exits have been coordinated,” he told Football Insider’s Adam Williams.

“Because the club have underperformed, the Glazers feel they need to have a reset at senior management level. Hemen Tseayo was the person who authored Project Big Picture.

“There are a lot of people leaving at the same time. If we go back to when Woodward started in 2013, David Gill and Sir Alex Ferguson left at the same time.

“In any form of succession planning, you shouldn’t have the manager and the person who is responsible for corporate leave at the same time.

“It does look like a club that is lacking an overall strategy, and it can be dangerous for everyone to leave at once.”

Erik ten Hag will take charge of United next season.

Many of the backroom staff who worked under Ralf Rangnick are also set to depart.
