Berrada’s unexpected transition from Manchester City to neighboring rivals Manchester United as CEO last week surprised many, including City boss Pep Guardiola, who extended warm congratulations to the Red Devils.
Having experienced working under various directors and CEOs throughout his career, Guardiola understands the impact of a capable board on a team.
However, he emphasized that he is not worried about the potential influence Berrada might have at Old Trafford.
When asked about the prospect of Berrada bringing City’s insights to United, Guardiola addressed the issue during his pre-match press conference before City’s FA Cup clash with Tottenham Hotspur on Friday night.
“Yeah but Kevin De Bruyne is still at Man City, Erling Haaland will play here too.
“I’m not sure it is that easy. But if United thinks with this person [Omar] everything is going to change, congratulations!”
Manchester City are set to face Fulham in the FA Cup 4th round on Friday night.
