Ed Woodward has issued a rallying cry to fans by reiterating Manchester United’s commitment to delivering footballing success.

In a statement accompanying the club’s first-quarter financial results, Woodward said the club was emerging from the pandemic in a strong position.

The results show a rise in overall revenue, driven by increased matchday and commercial income following the return of fans to Old Trafford this season. However, the executive vice-chairman stressed that the most important results were those on the pitch.

“While these financial results today demonstrate our resilience through the pandemic, our top priority is success on the pitch,” said Woodward.

“The manager, players and everyone at the club are determined to achieve that objective.”
