Manchester United cancels the traditional end-of-season dinner and awards ceremony following a disappointing season with no standout performances.

Manchester United has decided to cancel their traditional end-of-season dinner in the Premier League. Usually, this event is held to present awards to the best players of the season, but this year there are none deemed worthy of such recognition. United has endured a dreadful season and is eager for it to end. The team is unlikely to qualify for European competitions, currently sitting in 8th place, their lowest finish ever. 

Mid-season saw a change in the club’s leadership, with billionaire Jim Ratcliffe taking over. His team faces a significant amount of work this summer. 

The fate of manager Erik Ten Hag, as well as certain underperforming players who joined in expensive transfers in recent years, will be closely watched. Manchester United cannot afford another season like this one and will need swift and effective solutions. 

It’s worth noting that Chelsea skipped their dinner last year following a similarly poor season. However, Chelsea at least honored their youth and women’s teams, while United plans to cancel everything.
