Following the backlash over the European Super League, Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward has resigned from his post.

Manchester United’s decision to join a breakaway European Super League with 16 other top clubs drew widespread criticism from their own fans, prompting Woodward’s resignation.

Mark Ogden, an ESPN journalist, broke the news on Twitter.

He expressed himself as follows: “This has been verified. Ed Woodward has resigned as Manchester United’s executive chairman. I had planned to retire in the summer, but the ESL debacle has forced me to reconsider.”

Woodward, a 49-year-old retired banker, took over as chairman of the Red Devils in 2013 after CEO David Gill stepped down. He has faced widespread criticism for failing to win the Premier League during his tenure at Old Trafford.

He was said to be one of the “brains” behind the Super League, which was funded by JP Morgan through debt.

Woodward was a former employee of JPMorgan Chase, whose banking services were included in United’s tumultuous takeover.
