RUNNING a Premiership football club is never an easy job, but it can make you extremely rich.
This is why footy fans may wonder how much Manchester Unitedchief Richard Arnold really has in the bank, thanks to being the CEO of a major club.
Who is Man Utd chief Richard Arnold?
Born on April, 26 1971, Richard Arnold was educated at King's School in Chester before attending University of Bristol.
The British businessman earned a Bachelor of Science in Biology and ironically met former Man United chief executive Ed Woodward along the way.
Arnold landed a senior manager role in telecommunications and media for PricewaterhouseCoopers in 1993 before making the switch to Global Crossing Europe six years later.
But his big breakthrough came in 2007 when the wealthy Brit joined United as group commercial director.

Richard worked his way up the ladder by assuming control of club's business operations until he landed a seat on the board where Arnold would oversee sponsorship contracts such as United's $1.3billion (£1billion) deal with Addias.
And all of the British businessman's hard work paid off as Arnold succeeded University pal Ed Woodward on February 1, 2022 to become the chief executive officer at Old Trafford.
What is Richard Arnold's net worth?
Richard Arnold's has an estimated net worth of £740,000.
This is in contrast to Ed Woodward being paid over £3million during the 2019-20 season which made him the highest-paid Premier League director that year, according to TSB News.
