MANCHESTER. — Manchester United fans have scheduled a protest banner against Ed Woodward, calling for the Glazer family to sack the executive vice-chairman.
According to the Telegraph website, the banner will be flown over Turf Moor Stadium when the Jose Mourinho-managed side clash against Burnley on Sunday, September 2.
The UK publication further states that the message on the banner will bear the words “Ed Out – LUHG” – which means Love United, Hate Glazer. In March 2014, United supporters pulled-off a similar tactic as plan flew a banner over Old Trafford with the message “Wrong One – Moyes Out” in a bid to get David Moyes sacked. United fired the Scotsman the following month.
Despite signing midfielder Fred (£52m) and right-back Diogo Dalot (£19m), Woodward’s position at the club has come under scrutiny following United’s failure to bring in fresh players during the transfer window. Mourinho was eager to bulk up his defence with England international Harry Maguire and 29-year-old Toby Alderweireld from English Premier League contenders Tottenham Hotspur.
