Since sacking José Mourinho back in December 2018, Manchester United’s performance in the domestic and European competitions hasn’t really been mind blowing with club legend Ole Gunnar Solskjær on the helm. Recently, the executive vice chairman of the club, Ed Woodward, has come forward with his opinion, stating that with proper time, the Red Devils will taste success once again.
From finishing 6th in last season of the Premier League and missing out this year Champions League tournament, to the shameful defeat against West Ham, but Woodward believes that with given time, the Norwegian gaffer will turn things around.
“We and our growing fan base demand success. Success means winning trophies. That target and that standard has never changed for Manchester United . The progress we have made on the business side underpins the continued investment in the football side.” The 47 year old’s optimism for the future was noticed, in a recent interview.
The annual financial revenue at Old Trafford has reached a monumental record of £627.1 million in the last financial year ending in June, which is bound to drop following the expensive transfers and contract renewals at the club.
“Much of the progress made around that investment, in the academy, the recruitment department and the training ground facilities, is behind the scenes and therefore isn’t immediately apparent to those on the outside looking in.” Woodward added.
United are currently in the 8th position in the league table, trailing behind leaders Liverpool by 10 points.
