Loads of MUFC fans blame same man for club’s recent failures

Manchester United have failed to compete for, never mind win a Premier League title since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement six years ago.

After David Moyes, Louis Van Gaal and Jose Mourinho all failed domestically at Old Trafford, there has to be a wider issue behind the club’s problems. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side’s humiliation at Everton yesterday demonstrates the club is as far away as ever to getting back to the glory days of the Ferguson era.

Many United fans have recognised the role of Executive Vice-Chairman Ed Woodward in the club’s recent demise, blaming a scatter-gun recruitment process and a failure to appoint a footballing director as key attributing factors.

Since Sir Alex Ferguson left, Woodward, replacing former CEO David Gill, has overseen almost £650 million spent in transfers, many of whom have failed to perform at the club. Alexis Sanchez’ recruitment has come under particular criticism, with the Chilean’s extraordinary wages now making it increasingly difficult for the club to tie other players down to contracts.

Many Reds are also concerned of the reported impending appointment of Mike Phelan as technical director, as per the Telegraph.
