Woodward may delay Man Utd exit to help appoint Ole replacement

Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward could delay his departure from the club to oversee the appointment of an interim and then long-term replacement for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

In April, following the collapse of the club’s attempt to join the breakaway European Super League, United announced that Woodward will retire at the end of this year.

Woodward admitted at the time that “it would be difficult to walk away” and there has been no further comment on his future since.

However, he has remained at the centre of United’s decision-making process, and was instrumental in the decision to sack Solksjaer.

The instability within United’s football department means Woodward is likely to still have a key role for many months to come.

The 49-year-old joined United in 2005 and has been in his current role since 2012.
