Barry Fry has told This Is Futbol that he hopes the owners of Manchester United are not charged with deciding who will replace Ed Woodward as their executive vice-chairman.

The United executive has resigned from his position and will leave the club at the end of the season.

His resignation came after a firestorm of controversy involving the proposed Super League, of which United were set to be a founding member.

Do you think Woodward's exit will have any impact on the Glazers?

Yes

Yes

No

No

They were joined by Manchester City, Arsenal, Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool.

But the league is now dead, with the clubs being criticised by fans and pundits alike.

Woodward will need to be replaced, having spent the majority of his time at United heading up their transfer strategy and their commercial deals.

Fry, though, hopes that the Glazer family are not making the call, as he believes they would only get the decision wrong.

Speaking exclusively to TIF, the Peterborough United Director of , who counts himself as a United fan, said: “I wouldn’t have a clue who at United would be making that decision. If it’s the owners, I don’t give us much hope.”
