Ed Woodward sends message of assurance to Man United fans
United fans have begun ticking away to January when they can attempt to sign some valuable profiles in the market.
Top banana executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward assured that he’s willing to make things right, after an edgy and tussling start to this campaign.
United were stunned by Championship side Derby, losing 8-7 on penalties at Old Trafford, heaping more worrying concerns for Jose Mourinho.
The Red Devils desperately needed an injury-time equaliser to drag the clash into extra time, then to spot-kicks, which they eventually lost following a brilliant left dive from Rams Scott Carson that stopped Phil Jone’s effort.
The famous win sent Frank Lampard’s side to the fourth round of the League Cup.
Head coach Jose Mourinho was unhappy with the result, but appeared to be unbothered when he said, “the Carabao Cup is not a worry anymore,” after the match.
Well, it may not be and perhaps the 55-year-old was right, as United’s will have fresher legs on the field and one less competition to be involved in, it still doesn’t rule out how woeful they have been since their Champions League win over Young Boys.
And this Woodward in his statement has assured will be fixed, after the Red Devils released a record revenue of £590million for the fourth quarter.
Woodward said: “Everyone at the club is working tirelessly to add to Manchester United’s 66 and Jose’s 25 trophies
“That is what our passionate fans and our history demands.”
