Man Utd chief Woodward open to winter break

Manchester United vice-chairman exec Ed Woodward says the club would be open to a winter break.

It's suggested there is momentum growing for the Premier League to introduce a midseason recess.

“The Premier League has been in discussions with the FA and EFL for several months regarding the challenges of the increasingly congested English football calendar and ways in which we can work together to ease fixture congestion while also giving players a mid-season break," Woodward declared.

“Provided space can be found in the calendar, we are open to this in principle and will continue constructive discussions with our football stakeholders to seek a workable solution."
