Fans Mock Manchester United For Winning A Trophy: The Grounds Team Of The Season

Manchester United's season might have ended with them outside of the Premier League's top four and missing out on Champions League football next season, but who said that they walked away empty-handed this season, eh?

While they might have missed out on the Champions League crown and domestic titles like the FA Cup, the EFL Cup and the Premier League, they are the winners of the Premier League Grounds Team of the Season award for the 2018-19 season.

The Premier League's website said that match delegates and referees came to their decision after awarding marks 'based on a number of factors,' which includes the likes of pitch usage and environmental conditions.

Grounds manager Tony Sinclair told the club's official website: "It's unbelievable. It's something we are immensely proud of as a team.

"The condition of the pitch in the last four, five, six years, has come on tremendously.

"It's a great achievement for the team of staff. That's first and foremost.

"I always make sure I acknowledge the staff we have because you need a good team behind you. I have definitely got that."

Yes, football fans have had a field day taking to social media to mock the Red Devils for walking away with at least one trophy.

Ole Gunnar Solskjær will be hoping for a busy summer in the transfer window after a disappointing season, with his team suffering back-to-back league defeats to relegated sides Huddersfield Town and Cardiff City.

United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward has said that the club would back the 46-year-old Norwegian in the transfer window.

In fact, the Red Devils have already been linked with a move for Swansea City's Daniel James and Fulham's Ryan Sessegnon.

Will United finish in the top four next season?

Let us know in the comments.
