ManU Considers Reintroducing 'Football Club' To Badge After It Was Dropped In '98
ManU "may re-introduce 'football club' to badge after it was dropped 15 years ago," according to the MANCHESTER EVENING NEWS. ManU Exec Vice-Chair Ed Woodward "is considering whether to re-introduce the words 'football club'" to the Red Devils' badge. The words were controversially removed in '98 "following an image change, irritating many supporters." Now Woodward, who returned early for ManU's preseason tour on "urgent transfer business," has been consulting with the Glazer family about reversing that move. Woodward said, "I didn't like that change of badge. (Joint-Chair) Joel (Glazer) didn't like that change. We will look at that and have a think about that. We are a football club, not a business" (MANCHESTER EVENING NEWS, 7/21).
