On Tuesday night, the Manchester United fans sighed. Their club not only withdrew from participating in the UEFA Super League, but also announced that it would break up with Ed Woodward. He is the chief culprit in all of Manchester United’s sports failures in recent years, and Old Trafford fans hope to dismantle it with a unicycle.
When Woodward announced his departure, their dream came true, and Woodward was ashamed of participating in the UEFA Super League project. The moment of his resignation means that fans will always remember that he is a loser because the club did not win any British titles during his tenure. However, this situation is self-contradictory, because since Sir Ferguson retired, Manchester United are in their best time.
Woodward joined Manchester United with the Glaser family in 2005, including thanks to him, she took over the club for £790 million. It was Woodward who helped the Americans obtain huge loans, which changed the owner of the Old Trafford club. Before the British started working in the club, he was an employee of JP Morgan. The same JP Morgan who funded the European Super League project.
Woodward himself describes himself as a football fan and a person who knows and appreciates the game, but everyone who works with him sees him as a businessman rather than a scorer. In 2007, Woodward was responsible for Manchester United’s commercial operations. With the club’s revenue increasing from £48.7 million in 2005 to £117.6 million seven years later, his success is beyond doubt.
In the field of finance and marketing, Woodward feels like a fish in the water. If he restricts himself to this role, Manchester United may be in a completely different place today, without years of disappointment and seven seasons without an English title (currently the eighth). Woodward joined the transfer policy and hired coaches in 2013, which put the club into its worst period in the past few decades.
Manchester United, from the club that won the Premier League and selected the Champions League, has become a laughing stock not only in Europe but also in the entire country. Woodward became a symbol of the club’s transformation under the leadership of the Glaser family. Manchester United has become a company rather than a sports club. This is where the British are most criticized. It was his name that appeared on the flag drawn by the plane flying over Burnley Stadium in 2018, when he was known as a failure expert. It is his name that often appears in hostile chants in stadiums, and fans throw fireworks in his house.
Woodward was not helped by a private meeting leaked to the media. Woodward told one of the investors who are concerned about sports performance, there is no reason to worry, because the results on the court will not affect the commercial aspects of the club. When fans went on strike outside Old Trafford, demanding an increase in income and firing Woodward, Woodward told the Investor Club that the number of followers on the social media channel of the investor club had increased.
However, his work is not dangerous. On the contrary, when the club’s revenue reached 627 million pounds in 2019, the club owner was very excited.
David Moyes of Woodward said: “I don’t know if this man is a genius or a clown.” David Moyes of Woodward only stayed in Old Trafford, England. He was expelled after 10 months. Although the performance of the Scot following Ferguson was far below expectations, the decision to fire him was not liked by Manchester former manager Untied. Ferguson should disrespect Woodward so much that not only did he not speak to him, but he also did not shake hands.
-He can sign an excellent long-term contract with Chevrolet, but getting players is not his glass-one of Woodward’s most important football agents said in an interview with Sports.
Those who have watched his work in the sports department from the beginning admit that the British know nothing about football and the intuition necessary for his role. In 2013, Manchester United paid 27.5 million pounds for Marouane Fellaini, even though the player had a 4 million pounds termination clause in the contract. A year later, Woodward rejected Everton’s bid to buy Tom Cleverley for $5.5 million because he thought it was too low. In return, he loaned him to Aston Villa and agreed to assume most of the player’s contract. After returning to the club, Cliveley’s contract with Manchester United expired, and the midfielder was transferred to…Everton for free.
Every popular broadcast he made to Old Trafford Woodward proved to be nonsense. Angel Di Maria, Morgan Schneiderlin, Memphis Depay, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Henrik · Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Alexis Sanchez-these are just some of the names that appeared during his tenure at Manchester United that did not match the coach’s wish list or proved to be total dumb.
