Manchester United suffered quite an embarrassment at their player of the year awards ceremony on Thursday evening as former England cricketer Geoffrey Boycott slammed the players live on MUTV.
Every member of the first-team as well as manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his coaching staff, were in attendance at Old Trafford for the end-of-season awards show, which was broadcast live on United’s own television channel as Luke Shaw took home the Player of the Year crown.
However, MUTV viewers, who are usually given a positive perspective and a rosy picture of the club were handed out a reality check by Boycott as the legendary cricketer delivered his blunt assessment of the club.
Metro quote Boycott's interview in which he was asked to describe what Manchester United means to him at the moment and Boycott started by stating, "Disappointment more than anything."
He continued, "For half of the season there was hope, some enjoyment, some good times. And somehow it’s kinda faded away towards the end."
Boycott further said in conclusion, "The football hasn’t been inspiring, if anything they’ve let themselves down and the people who support Man United, because I think they are a bit better than that. It’s not just the results but some of the football has been hard to watch, you know."
