VIDEO: Manchester United fan burns last season’s away shirt in protest at lack of summer signings

Disappointing transfer deadline day.

Dear @ManUtd . I'm heartbroken. My beloved club has become a laughing stock all because of that man #Woodward. I'm watching the coming season as a neutral. I've no strength to witness the repeat of last season 💔😡 #WoodwardOut pic.twitter.com/XoMchM7efN

A frustrated supporter shared a video of his pink Manchester United shirt being burnt, declaring himself “heartbroken” by the lack of new arrivals.

The clip drew a lot of attention on social media as fans blamed executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward for the decline of the team since he took over that position.

Woodward, how does this man sleep at night??🤔😡

Man Utd have already splashed the cash on Aaron Wan-Bissaka from Crystal Palace and Harry Maguire from Leicester as well as recruiting Swansea’s Daniel James.

But, while transfer deadline day drew to a close, there was a distinct lack of any news involving Old Trafford and people took to Twitter to complain.

Okay lads…maybe I shouldn't have burnt the club shirt..no disrespect meant 🙏…I'm just so sad because we are gonna be worse than last season🤦🏾‍♀️

In a short, open letter, the shirt burner said the club were now a “laughing stock” and that he would be “watching the coming season as a neutral”.

He later seemed to be relatively apologetic for his actions.
