Speaking at a recent fans’ forum via BT Sport, Manchester United vice-chairman Ed Woodward has issued a pledge, suggesting that it is an ‘overwhelming priority‘ to get the Red Devils back regularly challenging for Premier League and Champions League titles – but some supporters don’t believe he is the man to help.
United, who currently lie eighth in the Premier League having won just one of their last five league games whilst also bowing out of the Carabao Cup semi-finals, appear to have much work to do if they’re to reach their once-lofty heights under legendary former boss Sir Alex Ferguson. Since Fergie’s retirement, United have failed to win a league title or make decent headway in the Champions League despite winning a Europa League title back in 2017. Woodward, who has overseen many of the transfers during that period, is currently shouldering mounting pressure from supporters who are keen on their side challenging for major trophies again.
As a result, despite Woodward’s pledge, many supporters have lambasted the vice-chairman’s promises, which one fan dismissed as ‘useless‘ – find all of their best comments from Twitter down below.
Woodward is so shameless!
