Manchester United missing out on the Champions League will hit the club hard from a financial perspective.
Football 365 report United could lose £75 million in revenue and sponsors as a result of the poor performances.
United will finish either fifth or sixth after a woeful run of form.
Chief executive Ed Woodward is set to feel the pressure.
The Times report Woodward will face a ‘grilling’ from shareholders in a conference call on May 16.
United will have their latest financial results released on this date, and the current backdrop of the loss of Champions League football outlines a worrying forecast.
It’s only right that Woodward is put under pressure.
He has had seven years at the helm and United are a mess on the pitch at present.
It is his fault, more than any other individual.
The worry is that the Glazers are toothless or unwilling to take any real action to remove Woodward from his position overseeing football matters.
Lets hope a strong signal is sent, and if it’s not his total removal, then at least this prompts the club to get on with appointing a sporting director.
