Ed Woodward has announced that he will step down from his role as executive vice-chairman at the end of the year.
The 49-year-old had been involved in the European Super League project that never panned out, and after heavy backlash from every corner, Woodward thought no better than to resign.
Woodward had been at the club since 2005, and became the club’s chief executive after David Gill stepped down in 2013.
Speaking to beIN Sports (h/t Football.london), former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has taken a dig at Ed Woodward following his resignation from Manchester United, as he revealed that the Super League idea was a poorly planned project.
Wenger said: “Well, I would say he realised the project was not well prepared, and I don’t know what Woodward will do.
“But, look, if you want to create a Super League with two groups of 10 teams and you come out with only 12, and you know you can lose some, (laughs) your project is not very solid.”
