Manchester United released their financial report for the second quarter of 2021 yesterday.

Ed Woodward commented: “We reflect on an extraordinarily challenging 12 months for football and society as a whole.

“The rapid rollout of vaccines in the UK and beyond gives us confidence that we are now on a path towards normality, including the return of fans to stadia.

“While the disruption to our operations remains significant, we are pleased by the tremendous resilience the club has demonstrated through the pandemic.

“The progress made by Ole and the players this season is clear and our thriving Academy and Women’s team are also adding to the optimism we feel about the future on and off the pitch.”
