Manchester United Plc boss Ed Woodward, one of the highest-profile executives in world soccer, plans to leave the club amid the fallout from a crumbling plan to form a new European Super League.

The 49-year-old Woodward will leave his position as executive vice chairman -- effectively the most senior operational role at the club -- at the end of 2021, according to a company statement.
