Man Utd vs Liverpool: Woodward speaks on sacking Solskjaer

The Executive Vice-Chairman of Manchester United, Ed Woodward, has thrown his weight and support behind manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who is currently under fire.

Manchester United will be clashing on Sunday with their rivals Liverpool who are at the top of the league.

The Red Devils are currently in 12th position on the table and have suffered their worst start to campaign in 30 years.

However, Woodward is not throwing Solskjaer under the bus despite the poor start to the season.

“Ole’s vision maps exactly to the core three football objectives we have.

“We must win trophies, we must play attacking football and we must give youth its chance.

“Last season we were the Premier League’s leading club in terms of the most match minutes given to our own Academy graduates.

“We should all be proud that the significant investments we have made in our Academy – spanning recruitment, facilities and analytics – are now bearing fruit.

“There’s a lot more we need to do in that but that’s coming in the next few years.

“We know this is a strong competitive advantage for us and an area that we’ll continue to focus on and invest in. But this remains the heart of the club.

“The middle section of last season, after Ole’s arrival, feels most relevant to what we want to achieve and where we want to be.

“We saw a team playing fast, fluid football, with a clear representation of the style and philosophy the manager wants.

“Ole has also instilled the discipline back into an environment where we may have lacked it in recent years.

“He’s building a squad that respects the club’s history, in which players work hard and respect their team-mates. No-one is bigger than the club,” Woodward said, according to the UK Mirror.
