REVEALED: What Woodward REALLY said during Man Utd defeat

Manchester United insiders deny claims of vice-president Ed Woodward ticking off Phil Jones during defeat at West Ham.

The Daily Mail says on more than one occasion at the London Stadium, the cameras focused on Woodward in the directors' box .

It was alleged on social media that he turned to Jones and said, "We're on camera, stop", after he heard the player muttering along to the West Ham fans taunting Solskjaer with a chorus of, "You're getting sacked in the morning".

Sources close to Jones dismissed those suggestions on Monday night, while Woodward is adamant that he was talking to another member of staff and asked, "Has he been booked, Diop?" following a foul by the West Ham player.
