Ed Woodward quits Manchester United amid ESL row
Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward has reportedly handed his resignation amid the European Super League row.
The Red Devils confirmed that they were one of the founding members of the ESL few days ago, which was met with fierce criticism from fans.
The likes of Chelsea and Manchester City have already bowed out of the breakaway league, and United are expected to follow suit.
Amidst this, The Mail reports that Woodward has stepped down from his position, though the exact reason has not been specified.
All English clubs are expected to withdraw from the ESL amid the furious response from their respective supporters and former players.
United are yet to make an official statement regarding Woodward's exit, but it is claimed that he was initially expected to leave the role in December.
Meanwhile, there are claims that the Glazers may put the club up for sale after witnessing a failure with the big-money project.
