FURIOUS Ed Woodward was shown shaking his head in the stands as Manchester United suffered a horror start against Southampton.
The Old Trafford executive vice-chairman was seething as Jose Mourinho's side went 2-0 down thanks to a wonderful free-kick from Cedric Soares and Stuart Armstrong's earlier effort.

David De Gea – who Mourinho recently referred to as "world class" – was shown shaking his head in frustration on the pitch.
And cameras caught Woodward doing likewise at St Mary's.
United fans were far from impressed with Woodward's actions.
One wrote: "Watching Ed Woodward shaking his head at United conceding a goal from a brilliant free kick. What are his football credentials again? What has he given the game?"

Another said: "Ed Woodward can shake his head all he wants but he's part of the problem at United."
One post read: "I am literally tired of this United defence! TIRED! @ManUtd.. Are you watching this from the stands Ed Woodward you t**t! See what you have done."
A fellow user posted: "Ed Woodward will just call this a dip in form. The board and manager want us to fail."
Others took delight in United's struggles – before they made it 2-2 at half-time thanks to goals from Romelu Lukaku and Ander Herrera.
#MourinhoOut #joseout we'll probably win this game to pave over the cracks once again and Ed Woodward will think all is well. I've come to the conclusion he is just as much to blame for this mess. Any other big club would have acted well before now.
