Manchester United officials have been left stunned after chief operating officer Michael Bolingbroke resigned, according to The Manchester Evening News

It appears that Bolingbroke has resigned after finding another job with a different company. This has come as a major blow for the hierarchy at Old Trafford as the operating officer was in charge of ticketing, hospitality and matchday operations at the club. 

There have been many ins and outs at Manchester United over the past year after the likes of Sir Alex Ferguson and David Gill left the club and now the Red Devils will have to replace Bolingbroke in the summer.

On the news that Bolingbroke will be leaving the club, Manchester United executive vice chairman Ed Woodward said: “Mike has been instrumental in the success of some major projects that we have completed since his arrival, most notably at the Aon Training Complex and in improving the matchday experience for all fans coming to Old Trafford.

"Everyone here wishes him well for the future. With the internal reorganisation undertaken last summer, we will maintain stability in vital areas of the business.”

It has been a tough time for Manchester United in recent months with a disastrous season on the pitch. United currently sit in seventh place in the Premier League table and look set to miss out on Champions League qualification this season. 

On the pitch, David Moyes takes his Manchester United side to St James' Park tomorrow afternoon, and the Red Devils will be desperate to secure all three points against Alan Pardew's side.
