Manchester United fans call for Ed Woodward to be sacked, rather than manager Jose Mourinho

Manchester United fans do not want to see Jose Mourinho sacked, despite reports suggesting the Portuguese could be shown the Old Trafford door.

The Mirror reported on Friday night that Mourinho will be axed irrespective of United’s result in their Premier League clash vs Newcastle.

United chiefs moved to deny these rumours on Saturday morning, but the feeling remains that Mourinho will be lucky to see out the season in charge of the Red Devils.

He is said to have alienated the club’s key players such as Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford, and results have been remarkably poor; with three Premier League losses already, United sit 10th in the table.

Nonetheless, Mourinho remains largely backed by the Old Trafford faithful.

The supporters feel the Portuguese was not backed enough by the United hierarchy during the summer, and they believe he is being made a scapegoat for the club’s failures.

And it is not Mourinho that United fans want to see sacked – it is Ed Woodward.

Woodward, the club’s executive vice-chairman, is regarded by fans as the man truly behind United’s failures, and supporters took to Twitter to call for his dismissal amid the reports of Mourinho’s departure.
