A journalist has named two players at Manchester United who went to confront Ed Woodward in a revolt against the proposed European Super League (ESL).
As per a tweet from Leah Smith, who is a reporter for Stretty News and Caught Offside, both Luke Shaw and Harry Maguire ‘confronted Ed Woodward’ and were ‘heavily involved’ in a player revolt behind the scenes at Old Trafford.
Should the Glazers leave Man Utd?
The Red Devils have since officially withdrawn from the ESL, and Woodward will leave his post at the end of the year, although it is not clear whether the timing of this announcement is because of the ESL backlash.
Shaw and Maguire show leadership
Maguire, being the captain of the club, showed true leadership in deciding to confront Woodward, while Shaw’s big part in the revolt should also not go unnoticed.
They echoed the opinion of their fanbase in wanting to withdraw from the ESL and they all got their wish in the end.
With the proposed league now seemingly done and dusted, at least for MUFC, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team can now focus on the rest of the season, in which they still need to cement themselves in the top four of the Premier League and try to go on and win the UEFA Europa League as well, which would bring the Norwegian boss his first piece of major silverware while managing his former club.
A European trophy, Woodward out and a top four finish sounds like a pretty nice end to the season for the Old Trafford faithful.
