Manchester United fans who are not satisfied with the club’s performance this season, have decided to take the laws into their own hands by attacking the home of Manchester United’s chief executive Ed Woodward.
They showed their grievances in solidarity that Manchester United has not been doing well.
It is learnt that these fans are members of United’s notorious ‘Men In Black’ hooligan firm. They made up their minds to launch a coordinated and preplanned attack on Woodward’s luxurious £2m Cheshire mansion, where he lives with his wife and two young children.
These angry fans came prepared as they launched fireworks and smoke bombs at the building.
The fans allegedly assembled outside his house and rang the house’s intercom on his gate entrance on Tuesday night, and when no one answered, they launched fireworks and a smoke bomb before spray painting his gates red.
The fans are angry with the way investment and transfer decisions are made by Ed Woodward and the club’s owners – the Glazer family, since Sir Alex Ferguson left the club in 2013. The club has struggled to find its feet since Alex Ferguson left leading to no Premier league title won since then, and the club finishing in 4th, 5th, 2nd, 6th and 7th since the legendary manager left the club.
Manchester United has however issued a statement saying the fans will be banned for life and also prosecuted after an investigation is carried out by police.
Manchester United in a statement on it’s official website wrote:
‘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.’
