Ed Woodward Resigns As Manchester United V/Chairman Over Super League Drama

Ed Woodward has stepped down as executive vice chairman of Manchester United, Sky News understands.

The move comes amid fury at plans to create a European Super League featuring six English teams, including Manchester United, and other top clubs from Spain and Italy.

Mr Woodward, 49, took the post at Old Trafford in 2013 and played a key role in the now stuttering league.

It is understood he will continue in his role with United until the end of 2021.

Mr Woodward had already agreed to leave his role at the end of this year, but the announcement has been brought forward amid the Super League backlash, according to Sky Sports News.

Shares in Man United fell following the news as the New York Stock Exchange headed for closing on Tuesday.

The club is yet to announce whether it will join Manchester City and Chelsea in pulling out of the Super League.
