Glazer has Man United boardroom reshuffle (go back to the homepage)
Malcolm Glazer's sons, Joel, Avram and Bryan, have been appointed to the Manchester United board in a major reshuffle of the Old Trafford boardroom.
Long-serving chairman Sir Roy Gardner has resigned, but chief executive David Gill and manager Sir Alex Ferguson's positions remain unaffected.
The Glazer family seized control of the eight-times Premiership champions last month when they took their stake to 76.2 per cent.
And the Glazers are set to reveal next Monday their precise shareholding, once all replies to their offer of £3 per share have been received.
It is widely thought that Joel Glazer will be his father's main representative at Old Trafford.
Of the boardroom changes Manchester United said: "Manchester United plc is pleased to announce the re-appointment to the board of directors of Andy Anson as commercial director and the appointment of Joel Glazer, Avram Glazer and Bryan Glazer as new non-executive directors. The appointments are effective from 6 June 2005."
The Red Devils added: "Following the unconditional mandatory cash offer for Manchester United plc made by NM Rothschild & Sons Limited on behalf of Red Football Limited on 23 May 2005, Sir Roy Gardner, the non-executive chairman of Manchester United plc, and Mr Ian Much and Mr Jim O'Neill, both non-executive directors of Manchester United plc, have each resigned from the board of directors of Manchester United plc with effect from 6 June 2005."
