By Abba Gwale

Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward is to step down from his role.

Woodward had already agreed with the Glazers, United’s owners, that he would finish at Old Trafford at the end of the year, but the announcement has been brought forward to Tuesday evening.

However, it is understood that he will continue in his role at the club until the end of 2021.

It follows the news that Chelsea and Manchester City have decided to leave the breakaway Super League following a mass rejection of the plans by fans and governing bodies across Europe.

United stood down from the European Club Association (ECA) on Sunday and Woodward stepped down from his UEFA roles.

Sky Sports News has been told the decision for Woodward to leave United is an amicable one and unrelated to the Super League proposal.
