Home of Man Utd chief Woodward ATTACKED

Manchester United chief Ed Woodward has been the victim of protests at his family home by angry fans.

The Sun reports shocking pictures show a gang of around 20 hooded supporters - some of whom are believed to be members of United's notorious “Men In Black" hooligan firm - targeting the £2million Cheshire mansion.

The gang congregated outside and rang an intercom on large gates at the entrance to the sprawling property on Tuesday night.

Woodward, his wife and kids are not believed to have been home during the incident.

And when no-one answered, they sprayed red paint over it and launched a red smoke bomb into the grounds before aiming a firework at the house in disgusting scenes.

A source told The Sun: “Woodward has been a disaster as chief executive and needs to leave the club.

"Lots of people have said it but he doesn't seem to listen - perhaps because he's getting paid £4m-a-year.

“So we decided to pay him a visit to tell him to his face. We didn't get to speak to him but hopefully he'll get the message because we're not going away and we won't stand around doing nothing while our club is ruined."
