Ed Woodward’s resignation rumors comes after Manchester United were heavily criticised by their own supporters for agreeing to join a breakaway European Super League.It is understood Woodward will leave the club at the end of 2021.
Edward Gareth Woodward is an English accountant and investment banker who is the executive vice-chairman of Manchester United F.C., and effectively the chief executive overseeing the club’s operations
Legendary manager Sir Alex Ferguson was among those to voice his opposition to the decision.“Talk of a Super League is a move away from 70 years of European club football,” he told Reuters.
“Both as a player for a provincial team Dunfermline in the 60s and as a manager at Aberdeen winning the European Cup Winners’ Cup, for a small provincial club in Scotland it was like climbing Mount Everest.”
