Manchester United Fans Mocked For Claiming The Club's Trophy Drought Is Over After Bangkok Century Cup Win

Manchester United Fans Mocked For Claiming The Club's Trophy Drought Is Over After Bangkok Century Cup Win

United were awarded the Cup after thrashing Liverpool 4-0 in Thailand.

Manchester United made the perfect start to their pre-season schedule with a thumping 4-0 win over rivals Liverpool on Tuesday.

Jadon Sancho, Fred, Anthony Martial and Facundo Pellistri all got on the scoresheet as the Erik ten Hag era got underway with an impressive all-round performance in Bangkok, Thailand.

Victory for the Red Devils at the Rajamangala Stadium saw them awarded the Bangkok Century Cup at the end of the match.

But some United supporters appear to have got a little over-excited by the win, claiming the club's long trophy drought is now over.  

United last won a major piece of silverware back in 2017, when Jose Mourinho guided to the team to a 2-0 win over Ajax in the final of the Europa League.

Mourinho was sacked the following year and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Ralf Rangnick have since come and gone without the club winning another trophy.

A Twitter account named 'Days since Man Utd Last Won a Trophy' has been keeping tabs on the length of time since the Europa League triumph.

After United's victory over Liverpool, the account tweeted: "The Bankok (sic) century cup doesn't count as a trophy. The count still goes on", before confirming that it had been 1874 days since the club's last piece of major silverware.

Those tweets angered some United supporters, who believe the count needs to be restarted after the victory over Liverpool.

"Is this not a trophy? It looks like a trophy to me," posted one fan along with a picture of Bruno Fernandes and Ten Hag holding the Cup.

Another added: "Still a trophy, just not a major one. Change your name or stop the count."

Fans of rival clubs were quick to mock those supporters, with one replying: "Have some shame."

Another added: "You're so starved of silverware and it shows."

"The shame of you lot trying to pass this off as an actual trophy. One game against a bunch of Liverpool reserves," posted a third fan, along with a series of crying-laughing emojis.

United will now continue their pre-season tour in Australia, where they take on Melbourne Victory on Friday.

Liverpool, meanwhile, will face Crystal Palace in Singapore on the same day.
