Man Utd: Ed Woodward has no-one to blame but himself for discontent in the dressing room

Being a Manchester United fan at this moment of time is incredibly frustrating and you cannot help but feel sorry for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The club is a complete shambles and plenty of things need to change, both on and off the pitch.

Players seem to turn up when they feel like it and not one of them appears to be playing for the club’s badge with any pride that playing for the Red Devils should bring. It seems many of them are happy to earn their hundreds of thousands of pounds each week and put in minimal effort on the pitch.

As mentioned, it is not just the men on the pitch that are to blame with the members of the board also having a huge impact on the disaster show currently happening at Old Trafford.

Ed Woodward, you are one man that has attracted plenty of criticism for your role at the club and it seems you may have just caused more discontent with the players in the changing room.

According to a report by The Times, divisions between players have started to form in the dressing room because of the contracts being handed out (and not being handed out for that matter).


It is claimed that many of them do not agree with the deals being handed out to some of the club’s English players as they feel they do not merit the ones that are being offered to themselves; the likes of Ashley Young, Chris Smalling and Phil Jones have all recently been ‘rewarded’ (not quite sure that is the right word).

Ander Herrera will be walking away from the club after failed contract negotiations, Juan Mata is yet to commit his future to a new deal and David De Gea does not appear to be happy with what he has been offered either.

Thus, Woodward is the only one that can be left to blame for those decisions.

If the situation does not improve, then things for Manchester United will not improve and fans will be left to be feeling frustrated with the way their club is being handled for a lot longer than they have too.

Man Utd fans, do you think Woodward is to blame? Let us know your thoughts below!
