While journalists were sitting around waiting for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to attend his post-match press conference on Sunday, nearly an hour-and-a-half after the final whistle had sounded on a humiliation of historic proportions against Liverpool, Manchester United’s managing director Richard Arnold walked briskly through Old Trafford’s media room, making a beeline for the executive suite.

It is rare to see a United official of Arnold’s level occupy the same corridors as the press on a match day and rarer still, at critical moments like these, to see one move so quickly.
