Man Utd finance staff face redundancy

Club's finance team hit by round of cuts

Finance staff at football club Manchester United have been hit by a round of
redundancies following the takeover by US magnate Malcolm Glazer.

About 5% of the club’s 450 non-playing staff are to go in a cost-cutting
programme that will hit all main departments, including finance, IT and
marketing.

However the club has denied that the exercise was prompted by the takeover. A
Manchester United spokesman told The Guardian that the cost-cutting process had
been initiated before Glazer and his three sons arrived at the club.

‘The Glazers have not been substantively involved in the review at all,’ he
said.
