Woodward says Man Utd board behind Mourinho

Manchester United vice-chairman exec Ed Woodward says manager Jose Mourinho has the support of the board.

Woodward made the comments to shareholders yesterday.

"As it is easy to get caught up in the game-by-game fluctuations of our season, or even the relatively minor pieces of business and industry news, I would like to take this opportunity to take a step back and look at the bigger picture," Woodward told investors on Tuesday.

"We're the biggest sports team in the world as measured by number of fans.

"We know that position is one that requires continued effort and investment to maintain.

"Our board, our investors and everyone at the club are aligned with the fans on what we need to do on the pitch - and that is to win trophies.

"That's one of the reasons why we hired Jose Mourinho and we've already won three with him."
