Manchester United have canceled their Player of the Year event as the first team is too ‘embarrassed’ to move on.
Manchester United have endured a tough campaign and are guaranteed to record their lowest points in the Premier League, regardless of the outcome of their final game against Crystal Palace on Sunday.
The Red Devils could face the humiliation of relegation to seventh place and the Europa Conference League if they lose to Selhurst Park and West Ham in seventh place beat Brighton.
Following this vicious campaign, the team’s annual awards ceremony was canceled. According to the Mirror, this was done at the request of the first team who indicated that they would be upset to continue the exciting game.
Although the trophy may not be presented in person, the club continues to encourage fans to vote for its star this season. It is likely that Cristiano Ronaldo, who has scored 18 goals in the Premier League this season, will win the award.
The lack of a proper event means that the young guns of the club will not be properly honored by winning the FA Youth Cup in this campaign.
Outgoing manager Erik ten Hag will look to change the team’s fortunes when he officially takes over at the end of the season. The Dutchman is already working on the back but interim manager Ralf Rangnick will remain in charge of the Palace game – although Ten Hag will be in Selhurst Park.
