Manchester United’s Sir Jim Ratcliffe ‘set deadline’ over Europa League ban


UEFA has issued a challenge to Sir Jim Ratcliffe and his company INEOS, whose ownership of French club Nice could jeopardize Manchester United’s participation in the Europa League next season. Despite Manchester United’s FA Cup victory on Saturday, their place in the competition is at risk due to Nice’s higher league finish under INEOS ownership.

Ratcliffe, who acquired a 27.7% stake in Manchester United in February, now holds significant influence at Old Trafford. INEOS took control of Nice in 2019, and the club earned their Europa League spot with a fifth-place finish in Ligue 1. In stark contrast, Manchester United had a disastrous Premier League season, finishing in eighth place and failing to qualify for European competition.
