Woodward and Solskjaer react to Man United’s suspended fixtures

According to a report by Manchester Evening News, Ed Woodward and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer have reacted to Manchester United’s fixtures being postponed due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak.

The deadly disease which originated in China has brought the world to a standstill and the footballing community has been rocked to the core as well.

Certain players and managers have already tested positive for the disease which has already affected thousands of people across the world – even claiming lives.

In such a situation, it pays to exercise caution. Nothing should come above the safety and health of the players, fans and the backroom staff. With that in mind, the decision to suspend the season until the first week of April does sound like a step in the right direction.

Both Woodward and Solskjaer believe the same, as per Manchester Evening News. The club chief admitted that certain things are bigger than football and lauded the EFL and the UEFA for making this tough call (h/t Manchester Evening News).

Solskjaer, on the other hand, sent out a positive message to the supporters of the club and even thanked them for the unwavering support.

Prior to the suspension, United were on an 11-game unbeaten run. The latest victory came in the 5-0 drubbing of LASK in the Europa League.
