Manchester United chairman Ed Woodward has already got to work in starting the re-shape at the club, and his sacking spree on Sunday was just the first of what's to come, reports the Daily Mail.
The first casualties were Phil Neville and goalkeeping coach Chris Woods, as Woodward wasted no time in getting to work.
The 40-year-old took the walk to the dressing room straight after their match against Southampton and ultimately delivered the blow. Woods will definitely depart, with a new goalkeeping coach to be hired, as will Neville unless they decide to demote him to the academy.
Realistically though, it will not come as a surprise to either, as both were actually expected to depart along with David Moyes only to be kept on by interim boss Ryan Giggs.
Woodward's spree didn't come to a halt there, and when outside in the corridor it was then time for Rio Ferdinand to also be told the club would not be offering him a new deal, capping off a productive day at the office for the United honcho.
The Daily Mail also believe that Rene Meulensteen will be offered a coaching role once again at the club, with him coming in under fellow Dutchman Louis van Gaal in an all new setup at the club.
Even though Neville or Ferdinand may not be surprised, many other fans and United personnel alike are horrified over the treatment of the pair given the years of service both have put into club over the past years. Neville, being class of 92, was never expected to be sacked this way.
