Incoming Manchester United CEO Omar Berrada names the huge decision he’d have made at Liverpool.



Aspiring Manchester United CEO Omar Berrada reveals the momentous choice he wish he had executed while at Liverpool.Over the past twenty-four hours, Liverpool has likely been closely monitoring developments at East Lancs Road, ever since their rivals Manchester United announced a puzzling appointment.

A controversial stratagem was executed by the Red Devils when they snatched Omar Berrada from Manchester City in order to appoint him as United’s new CEO. As Chief of Football Operations for the Sky Blues, Berrada was a pivotal figure. However, at the onset of the Sir Jim Ratcliffe era at Old Trafford, he defected to the opposing team, Manchester United.


As Liverpool supporters assess the current Premier League leaders’ predicament, it is revealed that Berrada, a Moroccan national of Parisian descent, has previously expressed his opinion on Liverpool-related matters. The 46-year-old expressed his views on social media regarding the Reds in 2012, following the conclusion of Sir Kenny Dalglish’s second tenure as manager.Brendan Rodgers ultimately supplanted King Kenny in the Anfield dugout, but had Berrada prevailed, the situation might have been entirely different. Berrada stated at the time via Twitter: “Liverpool terminates Dalglish. “[Pep] Guardiola would be the ideal manager for them, but he has stated that he wishes to take a year off.”


As events transpired, Guardiola became the coach of Bayern Munich in 2013, a position in which he assisted the Bavarians in claiming three Bundesliga titles. Guardiola subsequently relocated to Manchester City in 2016, where he has maintained a close working relationship with Berrada to the present day.At the conclusion of the 2011-2012 Premier League season, Guardiola’s dismissal coincided with a poor eighth-place finish, so it seems improbable that he would have considered a transfer to Anfield at a time when his stock was so high after leaving Barcelona. However, had he invested at that moment, the Jurgen Klopp era might not have materialized.


Berrada, for his part, will be confronted with the censure he will inevitably receive from City supporters in light of his decision to align himself with their archrivals. Guardiola’s likelihood of accompanying him to Old Trafford is extremely remote.
