Manchester United won the FA Cup trophy yesterday, which happens to be the clubs first title since the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson in 2013, after beating Crystal Palace 2-1 at Wembley Stadium.

But that summit will confirm his departure a year early from Old Trafford. Woodward’s determination not sack his second manager in three seasons has been undone by United’s failure to qualify for the Champions League.
