Man Utd chief Ed Woodward was worried about one thing after Cardiff Premier League defeat

Manchester United chief Woodward saw his side fall to a 2-0 defeat to Cardiff in their final match of the Premier League season on Sunday.

The Red Devils were abject throughout the encounter at Old Trafford, with a Nathaniel Mendez-Laing double giving the visitors all three points.

Manchester United fans were furious at full time, with video footage from inside the stands showing them venting their fury.

Paul Pogba found himself in the firing line with one supporter shouting ‘you’re f****** s***’ in the World Cup winner’s direction.

And the South China Morning Post say Woodward had organised extra security after the game.

The United chief was fearful of fans going overboard after their dreadful Premier League campaign finally drew to a close.

In the past, United fans have tried to get into the directors box.

It was during a 3-0 defeat to Manchester City during David Moyes’ time in charge that sparked scenes of anger among those inside the stadium.

Yet the SCMP add that Woodward did not require the extra bodies he had on duty that day.

And he reportedly held contract talks with Juan Mata right in the aftermath of the Cardiff defeat.

Meanwhile, Woodward will oversee a United overhaul this summer as the Red Devils plot their path back to the top.

Yet former Red Devils captain Gary Neville believes the 47-year-old is not fit for duty.

“Ed Woodward’s had seven years now at this. Seven years,” he recently ranted on Sky Sports.

“I think he’s had his chance personally. I think he’s had his chance at running the football side of the club.

“No problem with keeping him at the club on the business side of things. The revenues, the operating profit, I’d imagine are pleasing the Glazer family enormously.

“That’s fine, but he’s had his chance at running the football side of the club.”

United have now gone six years without winning the Premier League title.

And whether they can close the gap on Manchester City and Liverpool next season is something only time will tell.
