Manchester United vice-chairman Ed Woodward says the club remains "absolutely committed" to the "positive path" under manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The Norwegian helped to ease speculation about his future with a win at Everton before the international break.

Former Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino, who remains out of work, has been heavily linked with United in recent weeks but Woodward has given a vote of confidence to their current manager.

“On the pitch, while there is still hard work ahead to achieve greater consistency, we remain absolutely committed to the positive path we are on under Ole as the team continues to develop."

Woodward's backing came as United revealed their revenue fell by nearly 20 per cent in the first quarter of the year.

“While the COVID-19 pandemic continues to cause significant disruption, we are optimistic that the recovery and normalisation phase is gradually coming into view," Woodward added of their financial results.

"The club’s resilience and our strong commercial business continue to provide a solid foundation and gives us confidence in our long-term outlook beyond the pandemic, both on and off the pitch.

“We recognise that not all football clubs are in as robust of a financial position and that the Premier League has a responsibility to support the wider English football pyramid.

"We will continue to push for this support, both through emergency assistance during the pandemic, and through longer-term reforms to ensure that the success of the Premier League is reinforced for the benefit of the national game as a whole."
