The creation of the European Super League didn't have the positive impact on fans and players that the presidents and shareholders of the twelve participating clubs are very concerned about. On Monday, for example, Tottenham decided to fire José Mourinho after he refused to train if Spurs played that tournament. And this Tuesday, the news is even stronger and harsher.
It's that from Manchester United began to circulate the rumor that Ed Woodward, CEO of the club and former member of J.P. Morgan, the US bank that will finance the European Super League, made the decision to resign after a discussion on very bad terms with several members of the team coached by the Norwegian Ole Gunnar Solskjær.
Harry Maguire, Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes, representing the entire squad and coaching staff, met with Woodward and made it clear that they are against the elite tournament that was announced "with great fanfare" last Sunday and that caused a great negative impact on the entire soccer world. After the meeting, Woodward commented to his surroundings that he will be leaving the position shortly.
In this context, the one who appeared on the scene was the MMA fighter Conor McGregor. Aware of Woodward's estrangement, he wrote on his Twitter account that he would like to buy shares in Manchester United in the short term. "Hey guys, I'm thinking about buying Manchester United! What do you think?", asked the Irishman, which generated a real revolution in social networks.
