Manchester United fans have launched a shocking attack with flares and smoke bombs at cheif executive Ed Woodward’s house, MySportDab reports.
Around 20 and 30 United fans dressed in balaclavas went to Woodward’s mansion in protest ahead of Wednesday’s second leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final clash against Manchester City.
Several flares were launched at the property with graffiti and also on the fences.
At least one of the flares ignited but Woodward and his family were not at the house at the time of the shocking attack.
MySportDab understands the group responsible for the protest are known as ‘The Men in Black’, a tough group of United fans who love dark clothing.
Manchester United have now released a statement promising to ban all fans identified for life after the incident.
It wrote: “Manchester United Football Club have tonight been made aware of the incidents outside the house of one of our employees.
“We are confident the football world will unite behind us as we work with Greater Manchester Police to identify the people responsible for this unwarranted attack.
“Anybody found guilty of such a criminal offence, or found guilty of trespassing on this property, will be banned for life by The Club and may likely face prosecution.
“Fans expressing their opinions is one thing, criminal damage and intent to endanger someone’s life is another. There is no excuse for this.”
Protests against Woodward and the Glazers have started in recent weeks due to the club’s lack of activity in the January transfer window.
Manchester United fans were heard chanting against the board and the Glazers in the FA Cup fourth round 6-0 win at Tranmere over the weekend.
