Jamie Carragher Lays Into Ed Woodward For "Acting Like A Superfan" And Says Glazers Don't Care About Man Utd
Jamie Carragher thinks Manchester United's owners do not care about the team's results while chief executive Ed Woodward is interested in "image over substance".
The Red Devils have made their worst start to a season in 30 years and are already 12 points off Premier League leaders Liverpool after just seven games.
They were held to a goalless draw by AZ Alkmaar on Thursday night and didn't have a single shot on target in the Europa League clash.
Manchester United's recruitment has also come under fire with many criticising the lack of depth in the Red Devils squad.
Writing in his column for The Telegraph, Carragher laid into Woodward for meeting the likes of Rio Ferdinand, Edwin van der Sar and Patrice Evra for a sporting director job.
He wrote: "Most recently we have witnessed Woodward acting like a United superfan, apparently meeting a series of club legends who might take on the position of sporting director."
