Manchester United chief executive Ed Woodward has resigned on Tuesday night amid huge backlash due to European Super League.
The controversial competition is seem to be falling apart with six Premier League clubs announcing their withdrawal.
And now with Woodward resigning United need to find a new chief executive. The fans have showed their true power and soul following the Super League decision and there is no better to time to appoint someone with a football background. Someone who can speak to the supporters.
Ajax chief executive, Edwin van der Sar could be perfect for that job.
The former United player – and Premier League, Champions League winner to boot – Van der Sar knows exactly what it takes to run a football club from the perspective of the fans. In his five years at the club Van der Sar has shown a remarkable track record in promoting youth, developing an Ajax philosophy and even witnessed the club reach a Champions League semi-final.
When Ajax sold Donny van de Beek to United last summer he wrote an open letter to Woodward, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and the club’s fans.
That shows how much he cares about football, players and the fans, so with that in mind he could be perfect United chief executive.
