News now: Manchester United’s chief executive Vice-Chairman Ed Woodward has reportedly been accused of the main culprit behind the Red Devils’ recent dressing room unrest as per the report in English outlet The Athletic

The recent reports are suggesting that United players are unhappy with the new interim manager and questioning Ralf Rangnick’s coaching methods and tactics. The players who don’t play regular first-team football have also been frustrated and want to move away from the Old Trafford stadium. 

According to the report, Woodward made quite a few wrong decisions over the past few years which led to this current unrest inside the Red Devils dressing room. Extending players contracts to protect their values have been one of them. This strategy increased the squad numbers and with the players being tied in a long term contract, offloading them has become very tough for the Old Trafford hierarchy. The report also claimed that former manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer gave his consent to award the new contract to these players. 

Rangnick has 29 senior professionals in the squad, excluding seven players who are on loan. So, it has become extremely difficult for the German boss to give game time to everyone. And this created frustration among the fringe players due to the lack of first-team action.

News now: Will Manchester United be able to come out from this difficult period? 

News now: Manchester United have struggled to match the lofty ambitions of the fans over the last decade under Chief Executive Ed Woodward. The Englishman had no expertise in doing business for football clubs before becoming the Red Devils CEO and the inefficiency in his decision making was apparent in the transfer market. 

He has always opted to sign superstars for big money and most of them have been a wrong choice from the Englishman. With Woodward departing and Richard Arnold taking over the CEO role, it will be interesting to see how the new man approaches his business. 

Arnold does not have much experience in making football decisions either and if he makes the same mistakes that his predecessor did, then there won’t be much change at the Old Trafford stadium. 

Rangnick will be taking over the consultancy role after finishing his interim period and the new CEO should give the German all the power to make decisions on the football side. 

In that case, the Old Trafford faithful could be optimistic about their future, otherwise, the topsy-turvy situation will continue and the Mancunians will have to wait much longer to experience success.
