Despite Manchester United’s fall from grace in the recent years, the Glazers, who own what once used to be the greatest sports club on earth, don’t want to sack Ed Woodward, according to reports.
I don’t know a single Manchester United fan who doesn’t want the vice-executive chairman, Mr Woodward, to be fired after a dismal performance against Burnley who beat us 2-0 at Old Trafford.
During Woodward’s reign, Manchester United have fallen well behind the archrivals Manchester City and Liverpool when it comes to the English Premier League.
Most of the managers hired during his regime like David Moyes, Louis van Gaal, Jose Mourinho and now Ole Gunnar Solskjaer have struggled to make any impact at the Old Trafford. Man Utd fans have had enough of it, venting their fury on social media at both Woodward and the Glazers after their 2-0 defeat to Burnley on Wednesday night.
Despite that, BBC Sport have reported, Ed Woodward’s position as the United chief is safe. When the Glazers took over in 2005 it was Woodward, then a banker, who helped broker the deal.
And they’re fully adamant that he’s the right man to be in charge of United, despite the club’s disastrous form during his time in charge. It’s claimed he retains the full support of the Glazers and they pay him handsomely, giving him £3.16million last year.
And it seems as if United fans won’t get their wish of Woodward leaving while the Glazers control things.
