Manchester United executive vice-chairman’s home attacked by football fans

Ed Woodward

The home of Manchester United's executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward was attacked last night by a group of masked people.

A video on social media is doing the rounds and shows an individual throwing a red flare over the gate of his alleged Cheshire home, while others chant that he was "going to die".

According to BBC News, Woodward wasn't home at the time, however it is likely that his wife and two young children were.

Speaking about the situation, a statement from Manchester United read: "Fans expressing opinion is one thing, criminal damage and intent to endanger life is another. There is simply no excuse for this.

"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."

They also added that anyone caught committing criminal offences will be banned for life.

Fans of Manchester United have recently been growing more and more frustrated with Woodward and his backroom staff after a string of poor performances both on the pitch and in transfer windows.

The Reds currently sit fifth in the Premier League - 33 points behind leaders Liverpool - and the glory days of the club feel like a very distant memory for fans.

It is not the first example of United fans targeting the homes of those associated with the club, with Wayne Rooney being confronted outside his home in 2010 and Rio Ferdinand facing similar treatment five years earlier.

It goes without saying that these actions will only prove detrimental in the long run.
