Stoney announced on Wednesday she would be resigning from her role as manager amid ongoing tensions between herself and the club.
MEN Sport understand Stoney was frustrated by poor training facilities made available to her side, with the Women’s team forced to fit their preparations around the men’s schedule as well as those of youth teams.
Stoney oversaw United’s rise to the WSL in the space of just two seasons since their reformation in 2018, guiding them to 4th place in the top-flight in an impressive debut season.
United had led the league at the start of the year but tailed off amid an ongoing injury crisis with Stoney reportedly believing the poor training facilities were partly to blame for that.
Stoney will take charge of her final match when the Reds face Leicester in the FA Cup on Sunday afternoon and ahead of the match English defender Turner paid tribute to her mentor.
“A special game for many reasons tomorrow,” Turner tweeted on Saturday. “Casey you have been the driving force and leader of this team. I personally can’t thank you enough for everything you’ve done for me. The way you believed in me, the way you let me express the person and player that I am.
