Ed Woodward To Leave Manchester United Sooner Than End Of The Year

Earlier this week, Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward announced he would step down at the end of the year. However, a recent report says the executive vice-chairman could be gone in the summer.

According to a tier-one source in The Athletic, Ed Woodward will leave his role as Manchester United’s executive vice-chairman in the summer.

Initially, it was announced that the 49-year-old investment banker would step down at the end of the year amid the European Super League fallout.

The Athletic adds that Woodward will have a ‘large say’ on his Old Trafford successor and the Glazers look to keep the club profitable amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
