Manchester United co-owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe says fans “have to be a bit patient” following his investment in the club.

Ratcliffe completed a £1.25bn deal to buy a 27.7% stake in United in February.

The 71-year-old said he was “about 10 km” into rebuilding the club, who are currently seventh in the Premier League.

“It’s a long journey,” he said. “The fans are impatient and I have some sympathy with that.

“It’s a journey and people, whether they like it or not, have to be a bit patient.”

Ratcliffe was speaking to BBC Sport before travelling to Wembley to watch United’s FA Cup semi-final against Coventry City.

The Red Devils reached the final despite having thrown away a three-goal lead as Championship side Coventry forced extra time to eventually win 4-2 on penalties.
