Ratcliffe sends email to Man Utd employees blasting 'disgraceful' departments


SIR JIM RATCLIFFE has reportedly sent an email to Manchester United employees slamming the lack of cleanliness around the club’s facilities.

The co-owner has been very hands-on in recent weeks but his actions have not always been well received.

And now Ratcliffe has complained about the poor standards of staff, who have allowed Old Trafford and Carrington to become untidy.

The Ineos chief visited the facilities earlier this year and met staff and players, but was shocked by the lack of cleanliness, labelling the tidiness of the IT department as a “disgrace”, according to The Athletic.

The email adds “frankly the dressing rooms of U18s and U21s” were not much better.

United’s standards fell below what was expected of an Ineos company, with Ratcliffe concerned about the negative impression it could give to visitors, particularly potential signings.

Some staff were reportedly shocked to receive the email, while others believe it has been a long time coming, and needed to improve performance from certain colleagues.

Earlier this week Ineos warned colleagues that unacceptable standards could lead to perks like Christmas parties being taken away.


It comes after the club made cuts to staff’s FA Cup final perks, gifting them only one free ticket and getting rid of the free transport, food and accommodation that has been put on in recent years.

In the past, United have given tickets to all of their 1,100 staff members, while senior staff and directors were able to take friends and family.

Travel to and from the stadium, pre-match food, a post-match party and hotel accommodation were also paid for by the club.

But staff have been told they will only receive one ticket for the game, while they will also have to pay £20 for coach travel to and from Wembley on the day of the match.

The lasest clampdown comes after United were slammed for covering the costs of a swanky Wags day out.
