Fans attack home of Manchester United vice-chairman |Watch video


Manchester United vice-chairman Ed Woodward saw his house unexpectedly stormed by disgruntled fans on Tuesday night.

Some supporters – who are unhappy at how the club is being run – were recently heard signing songs encouraging the death of the 48-year-old.

And the situation developed on Tuesday night when a small group wearing balaclavas launched flares at Woodward’s home in Cheshire.

One video was then recorded on social media with the caption: “Ed Woodward’s gonna die.”
United quickly released an official statement condemning those involved and promising to hand out life bans to anyone found guilty of criminal offence.

A spokesman said: “Manchester United Football Club have tonight been made aware of the incident outside the home of one of our employees.

“We know that the football world will unite behind us as we work with Greater Manchester Police to identify the perpetrators of this unwarranted attack.

“Anybody found guilty of a criminal offence, or found to be trespassing on this property, will be banned for life by the club and may face prosecution.

“Fans expressing opinion is one thing, criminal damage and intent to endanger life is another. There is simply no excuse for this.”
It is understood neither Woodward nor his family were at home.
