A new era has begun at Manchester United.

British “billionaire” Jim Ratcliffe, founder of global chemicals group Ineos, has invested around £1.6 billion ($2.7 trillion) to acquire a 27.7% stake in the club and become co-owner.

Ratcliffe made headlines when he said he would overtake Man City in three years. The long-awaited ‘Manchester Derby’ is here. City and Manchester United will meet in the 27th round of the 2023-2024 English Premier League (EPL) at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester on April 4 at 0:30 a.m. ET.

City are currently unbeaten in 18 matches. 바카라사이트 United have lost just one of their nine games in the new year. But the ground is tilted.

City is second in the EPL (49 points) and United is sixth (44 points). In the first meeting this season last October, City won 3-0.

BBC pundit Chris Sutton is predicting a 6-1 victory for City.

“There’s no doubt that City will win,” he said. It’s just a question of how many goals they will score,” he emphasized.

However, City manager Pep Guardiola cautioned against getting carried away with emotions three days before the Manchester derby. “What we’ve learned from experience in these types of games is to be a bit calmer, relaxed and not talk about a lot of things,” he said, “We have to focus on tactics and what we need to do to beat them, not emotions.”

Ratcliffe knows City are the enemy. But he described City’s 4-0 victory over Real Madrid in last season’s Champions League quarterfinal second leg as “the best football I’ve ever seen”.

Guardiola added: “I’m very grateful. It’s a great honor,” he said, 안전 토토사이트 before bowing his head and adding: “In the 80s it was Liverpool, in the 90s it was Man United and now we have won seven Premier League titles in the last 11 or 12 years. Ratcliffe and his people know the diagnosis of the club. If they say we need two or three years, who am I to say the opposite,” he says with such respect.
