Its a series of rough patches for Ed Woodward. The executive vice-chairman of Manchester United has been facing reprimand from fans for months as the reason behind the club’s failure in the transfer market, and protests to sack the Englishman ranged from filing online petitions to sending flyers over matches. And now, people think he takes transfer suggestion from YouTube videos!
The 47 year old, who was appointed back in 2013, has been constantly failing to being in good players to Old Trafford, and #WoodWardOut hashtags have been trending among the fans online.
There have been rumours speading around on Woodward having more influence on the transfer window, and also- picking new players based on YouTube video suggestions.
In a recent interview with Red Devils fan magazine United we Stand, Woodward openly undermined the allegations.
“There’s a myth that I look at YouTube and choose players. I don’t. Having an eye for players is an art. I have no interest in doing that.” he told the reporters.
“The manager has a veto on a player – we would never sign a player the manager wouldn’t want because he wouldn’t play him.” he added.
With only 10 points out of 9 league games, United are currently down at 14th position in the EPL table.
