Ole Gunnar Solskjaer spoke about Ed Woodward at his press conference as the club’s executive vice-chairman prepares to step down.
Woodward went out on his sword as the European Super League failed. There was no way back for him after he ruined any trust UEFA previously had in him.
But the future doesn’t look so bad because we are sure he will enjoy the transition from Glazer puppet to vintner. After all, it means less angry football fans he will have to ignore.
The backlash was deserved and I hope this is the start of something big. Woodward is going, so let’s see if we can push the Glazers to follow in his steps.
Woodward appointed Solskjaer as the United caretaker manager in December 2018 before making him permanent manager three months later. And I don’t think many expected the manager to outlive the banker.
“Football is emotions and they run high,” Solskjaer said, as per Manchester Evening News. “I’ve had a very good working relationship with Ed. The club will have to move on without him and I’m sure Man United will always move on.
“I will work here as long as Man United want me to work here. We want to end the season successfully and Ed is part of that.”
Woodward, David Gill and Peter Kenyon – could it be Richard Arnold next?
