Over the weekend reports emerged that Manchester United manager Louis Van Gaal has offered to step down from his post following a 1-0 defeat to Southampton.
However, The Telegraph ran a story on Tuesday claiming that United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward has rejected the Dutchman’s offer and has asked him to continue working with the club.
The news apparently didn’t go down well the club fans.

It’s negligence. Utter negligence. Ed Woodward has got to be right up there with the worst decision makers in football.

If Ed Woodward does not either sack or accept a resignation from LVG today, than he should be sacked himself. Way out of his depth.

Commercially Ed Woodward is top of his game (Adidas deal & many others) but has little experience on the football side. It’s showing #mufc

Ed Woodward needs to listen to what every fan is saying. They have had enough. LvG must go. @ManUtd

If Ed Woodward continues to back Van Gaal then Man U will be nothing more than average, we need someone who will bring us trophies #jose ⚽️

Ed Woodward declines Louis van Gael resignation & still has faith in him….. Is this some kind of sick joke!

We’re a laughing stock because of the fans, not because of LVG or Ed Woodward. #mufc
