VIDEO: Manchester United fans throw flares at Ed Woodward’s house

A group of furious Manchester United fans throw flares at Ed Woodward’s house as their protests against chief executive turns nasty.

It’s reported that 20 supporters in balaclava – some of whom are believed to be members of the Premier League side’s notorious “Men In Black” hooligan firm – targeted the £2million mansion at 8pm.

The gang came together outside the home of Woodward and rang an intercom on large gates at the entrance to the property on Tuesday night.

Allegedly no-one answered, so the group decided to spray red paint over it and also launch smoke bombs as well as flares and fireworks.

It is understood the 48-year-old, who is married with two young children, was not present at the time.

A source told The Sun: “Woodward has been a disaster as chief executive and needs to leave the club.

“Lots of people have said it but he doesn’t seem to listen – perhaps because he’s getting paid £4m-a-year.

“So we decided to pay him a visit to tell him to his face. We didn’t get to speak to him but hopefully he’ll get the message because we’re not going away and we won’t stand around doing nothing while our club is ruined.”

Writer Richard Moriarty said: “This act is condemning and only makes the argument for United’s fan all the worse while defending the leadership even more.

“If United fans are genuinely fed up of the leadership, peaceful protesting and boycotting is easily the much better option and physical violence should never be condoned.

“Hopefully this is the last we see of it regarding the United-Woodward feud.”

It comes just days after Man Utd fans chanted “Ed Woodward’s going to die!” during a recent home match.
