Man Utd turn to AI with club hoping new tech will give struggling team edge




Sir Jim Ratcliffe is reportedly planning to utilize AI to transform Manchester United‘s performance.

The British billionaire, who recently acquired a 25% stake in the club, aims to revolutionize the team’s football operations. As part of this strategy, he has appointed ex-Man City chief Omar Berrada as the new CEO.

Ratcliffe’s interest in AI is aimed at providing United players with a competitive edge on the field.

The club has established a partnership with the Institute of Sport at Manchester Metropolitan University, granting them access to extensive research and Ph.D. programs, including AI-based analysis and metrics.

This initiative, which predates Ratcliffe’s takeover, is focused on enhancing the club’s data processing capabilities during live matches.

The goal is to provide manager Erik ten Hag with valuable insights that can influence match outcomes. AI will be employed to monitor players’ physical condition, identify potential injury risks, and analyze opponents’ weaknesses.

United is currently testing these new techniques at their training facility in Carrington, where drones are being used to film sessions from above.

This investment in AI reflects Ratcliffe’s commitment to leveraging advanced technology to elevate Manchester United’s performance.

United’s football director John Murtough said:

“Working with the Institute of Sport will build on our excellent existing research and innovation teams in order to further enhance the performance and development support that we are able to provide for our players.”

Institute of Sport director Professor Tim Cable added:

“Our collaboration with Manchester United has enabled us to attract world-leading talent into Manchester and bring our state-of-the-art scientific research to address the performance needs of the club.

“The initiative will provide the club with an added layer of intelligence, further strengthening Manchester United’s football operations.”

Man City 1-2 Man Utd: Garnacho & Mainoo score to help Red Devils win FA Cup! (VIDEO)



Man City 1-2 Man Utd: Garnacho & Mainoo score to help Red Devils win FA Cup! (VIDEO)

Manchester United and Manchester City met at Wembley for the second consecutive year, competing for the prestigious FA Cup title.

A win was crucial for both sides, not only for the bragging rights in Manchester but also because the outcome of the final would determine which English teams would secure spots in European competitions next season.

Erik ten Hag’s squad had a historically poor Premier League season, finishing 8th—the lowest position for Manchester United in the Premier League era—and missing out on European football for the first time in a decade.

Despite the disappointing league finish, Bruno Fernandes and his teammates knew that a victory at Wembley could partially redeem their season and guarantee them a place in European competition next season.

Here’s how Manchester United’s FA Cup win has impacted Chelsea and Newcastle’s participation in Europe next season.

Man Utd set to ‘sack Erik ten Hag’ even if they win FA Cup final against City



Man Utd chiefs impressed by Atalanta midfielder Ederson

Manchester United have reportedly decided to sack Erik ten Hag regardless of the outcome of Saturday’s FA Cup final.

The Dutch coach has faced a challenging second season at Old Trafford, finishing eighth in the Premier League— the club’s lowest finish since 1990— and failing to advance in the Champions League and Carabao Cup.

Despite reaching the FA Cup final, where they will face rivals Manchester City as underdogs, The Guardian reports that United co-owners Sir Jim Ratcliffe and Ineos have decided to part ways with Ten Hag, even if they secure a victory.

Potential replacements include Thomas Tuchel, Mauricio Pochettino, Kieran McKenna, Thomas Frank, and Graham Potter.

This decision marks a significant move since Ratcliffe and Ineos acquired a 27.7 percent stake from the Glazer family last December, gaining control over football operations.
