Manchester United legend, Gary Neville has come out to say that more action should follow after Ed Woodward’s resignation. The ex England player recently revealed that the trunk of the tree is gone, it is now time to go for the roots.
According to him, the truth is that not just Ed Woodward, but every single executive that sits at the Premier League table, and every single executive that’s on these UEFA or FIFA committees has to be thrown out because they can no longer be trusted.
He added that Ed Woodward already knew his time in football was finished, so he most likely resigned to keep away from the criticism that would’ve come his way in the next few months.
His words, “The fact of the matter is that, not just Woodward, but every single executive that sits at the Premier League table, every single executive that’s on these UEFA or FIFA committees, they need throwing out of that club because there’s no way they can be trusted.”
“Ed Woodward knew his time in football was finished, probably this morning, and he’s probably done that to keep away from the criticism that would’ve come his way in the next few months.”
“However, Ed Woodward is the trunk of the tree, we now need to go for the roots. I said last night I felt complicit, they’ve declared their hand.”
“While they were sat at the club never making a statement, never showing their hands, never doing media conferences, yes they were taking money out of the club, yes they’ve leveraged against the club, there’s nothing we can do about that once the club became a PLC.”
“They attacked every single football fan in this country with what they did. The Glazers have no place in Manchester anymore.”
“We have to work hard together to ensure that ownership rules in this country are changed, that we have a system whereby this cannot happen. Whether that’s Government intervention, independent regulator, whether it be a fan-owned club rule, whatever it is – we have to make sure that this is the catalyst for change.”
“The people have spoken. We were on the brink of anarchy if this continued.”
