Man Utd Chief Ed Woodward Steps Down From UEFA Role

Manchester United have resigned from the European Club Association and Ed Woodward has stepped down from his role with UEFA amid the club's involvement with the Super League.

United have also confirmed Joel Glazer will be one of the vice-chairmen of the Super League.

The Manchester United Supporters' Trust decried the club's Super League involvement in a statement on Sunday night.

“These proposals are completely unacceptable and will shock Manchester United fans, as well as those of many other clubs,” it began.

“A ‘Super League' based on a closed shop of self-selected wealthy clubs goes against everything football, and Manchester United, should stand for.

“To bring forward these proposals without any fan consultation, and in the midst of a global pandemic when people should be pulling together not serving their own selfish interests, just adds insult to injury.

“When Sir Matt Busby led us into the European Cup in the 1950s, the modern Manchester United was founded in the tragedy and then triumph that followed.

“To even contemplate walking away from that competition would be a betrayal of everything this club has ever stood for.

“We urge everyone involved in this proposal including Manchester United to immediately withdraw from this proposal.”
