Man Utd cancel season-end awards

BrotherMan Utd players asked the club not to hold the annual ceremony because they were ashamed of themselves with the poor results this season.

Man Utd always closes the season with an internal award ceremony and awards ceremony for more than a decade. But according to the British newspaper The Mirror“Red Devils” will not hold the same ceremony this year, at the request of the players.

If the award is given this year, Cristiano Ronaldo is a strong candidate. The Portuguese star has scored the most goals in the team this season, with 18 goals in the Premier League and six in the Champions League. He also received the Man Utd’s best of the month award four times, and twice was voted the best of the month in the English Premier League.

Two seasons ago, Bruno Fernandes – who has just extended his contract until 2026 – won the Man Utd Player of the Season award, named after the legendary Sir Matt Busby. This season, the Portuguese midfielder fell when he was low in the Champions League and contributed only 10 goals in 45 matches in all competitions.

Man Utd spent the fifth consecutive season empty-handed, when they were eliminated from the League Cup, FA Cup and Champions League respectively. They also no longer have the opportunity to squeeze into the top 4 of the English Premier League, and even risk losing tickets to the Europa League next season. “Red Devils” are currently sixth with 58 points, two points more than West Ham. They will drop to seventh – the Europa Conference League position – if they lose to Crystal Palace, and West Ham win at Brighton in the final round on May 22.

The trip to Crystal Palace is also the last match of Rangnick, before transferring power to Erik ten Hag. The Dutch coach arrived in London by plane on May 18, and will watch the confrontation at Selhurst Park. Before officially meeting the Man Utd players early next week, Ten Hag will not interfere in professional matters out of respect for Rangnick.

According to British newspaper Sportmailthe owner of Old Trafford can bid farewell to ten players in the summer of 2022, when Ten Hag want to radically reform the club. The list includes goalkeeper Dean Henderson, defenders Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Eric Bailly and Phil Jones. In addition, Paul Pogba, Edinson Cavani, Nemanja Matic, Juan Mata, Lee Grant and Jesse Lingard will leave the club on a free basis.
