WOODWARD SENDS WARNING TO MOURINHO AS CLUB ANNOUNCE RECORD REVENUES

Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward has reminded Jose Mourinho that Manchester United fans and the history of the club demands the club must win trophies.

Woodward also revealed the club is committed to blending top academy graduates with world class players.

Woodward announced record revenues of £590 million for the financial year of 2017/18 which overtakes last year revenues of £581m, which also set a record.

United made a £44.1 million profit, down from £80.8 million last season. Wages went up £32.4 million to £295.9 million, thanks mainly to Champions League bonuses.

The club failed to win any trophy last season but finished second, our highest league position since the post-Ferguson era and Woodward insists Manchester United fans demand more trophies.

“Everyone at the club is working tirelessly to add to Manchester United’s 66 and Jose’s 25 trophies,” Woodward said.

“That is what our passionate fans and our history demands. We are committed to our philosophy of blending top academy graduates with world class players and are proud that, once again, last season we had more academy graduate minutes on the pitch than any other Premier League club.

“Our increased revenue expectation for the year demonstrates our continued strong long-term financial performance which underpins everything we do and allows us to compete for top talent in an increasingly competitive transfer market.”
