Ed Woodward facing criticism over Man United’s woes


Man United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward has been facing criticism from a number of Red Devils fans and former players over the poor state of the team.

The criticism has been on the increase since the Red Deviously suffered a 1-0 defeat against Arsenal in the Premier League clash on Sunday following the goal from the spot by Gabon international forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

A lot has been said by pundits on the likely problem with Man United and manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Ed Woodward has not gone unmentioned in all of the accusations when issues of recruitment by the club are talked about.

Liverpool legend Peter Crouch is one of the critics of Ed Woodward as he slammed the Man Unite chief for having a poor transfer strategy that has affected the club, especially as was witnessed during the last summer transfer window.

The last summer transfer window is the worst that has been witnessed by Man United in a long time as they were unable to land most of their target. Dutch international Donny van de Beek is the only player that is originally on the Red Devil’s list during the window.

Although Man United secured the services of Edison Cavani, Amad Traore, Alex Telles, Facundo Pellistri on the final day of the window but they are not the targets of manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, it has been revealed.

The former Liverpool forward admits confusion over the direction of Man United’s plan. He added that Man United only goes for a player because they feel he is good but does not have clear plans for them.

“I don’t know what direction Manchester United are going in. I feel like when a good player comes up, like Cavani or Van de Beek, I feel like they go for him and get him and not really have a plan of where they’re going to play them” he said
