Manchester United fans are in revolt over the club’s transfer policy and have vented their anger by getting #WoodwardOut trending on Twitter.
Red Devils supporters are unhappy with executive vice chairman Ed Woodward, suggesting he has done an inadequate job of trying to strengthen United’s squad this summer. United have not announced any signings on deadline day so far, with Romelu Lukaku heading out of Old Trafford in a £72million deal.
One disappointed fan has named Watford’s Abdoulaye Doucoure, Sporting’s Bruno Fernandes and new Tottenham signing Tanguy Ndombele in a list of 11 players who ‘would have improved’ United’s midfield. It is understood United have pursued Fernandes throughout the summer, but they must act quickly if they are to strengthen before the deadline.
The Red Devils have undoubtedly improved their defensive options, signing Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Harry Maguire, and have injected pace up front by recruiting Swansea’s Daniel James.
However, fans are tweeting in their masses, with United fans and players desperate to atone for an unacceptable season last year.
Another disgruntled supporter tweeted: ‘If you’re in charge of the worlds biggest football club and haven’t come close to a league title in your 6 year time in charge. You have to look at yourself and admit you can’t do your job’.
The fan attached a picture of the ‘Ed Woodward – a specialist in failure’ banner which United fans flew over Turf Moor in September 2018.
One person simply posted: ‘Too many failed transfer windows means this man has got to go’.
United’s boardroom are working diligently to improve their squad before the 5pm deadline, but any deal will now go down to the wire. – Daily Mail.
