Manchester United’s executive vice chairman, Ed Woodward, is considering to do a little modification to the club’s official emblem.
The words “football club”, which is removed in 1998 because of changes in the image, the plan will be re-listed. The omission of the article and a half decades ago is fairly controversial and invite anger most Red Devils supporters.
Woodward himself admitted he did not like the change and ready to show again “football club” to the United badge.
“I do not like the turn the badge. [Joint-chairman] Joel [Glazer] also did not like the change. We will examine and consider about it,” he told the British media on Sunday (21/7) this.
“We are a football club, not a business.”
“I have explained to our staff that we are a 135-year old club and that is that you must remember. We are a football club, a club [club] with a capital C.”
“And those who are bound in the inside there is a commercial business that will finance the purchase of a lot of players forward and we should be supportive of them.”
“We have to make sure these two elements go together but not mutually affect each other and that’s where we try to balance it.”
