The Manchester United under-18 team won the championship.

Manchester United’s U-18 team defeated Chelsea’s U-18 team 2-1 in the 2023-24 Premier League final at Stampede Bridge in London on the 15th (Korea time). The Northern League champion team beat the Southern League champion Chelsea U-18 team to achieve a unified victory.

Ethan Whitley, who made his Premier League debut against Sheffield United on the 24th of last month, scored the first goal. Whitley, who is a promising player with Manchester United, played as a substitute for both Crystal Palace and Arsenal after the Sheffield match. United’s under-18s scored an equalizer after Whitley’s first goal, but scored a comeback to reverse the game and lift the trophy.

Manchester United announced the U-18 team’s victory on its official social media. The fans’ response was heated. The criticism was mainly directed at the first team, which performed poorly this season. “Now let’s change all these players to the first team,” one fan said, while another said, “Can’t they play in next week’s FA Cup final?” “There was another fan,

Manchester United has been in a serious slump this season. The league has recorded the most losses since the Premier League reform, falling to eighth place. With two more games to go, it is highly unlikely that it will be ranked sixth and earn a ticket to the UEFA Europa League.

Manchester United also performed poorly in the Cup. They were eliminated from last place with only one win in the group stage of the UEFA Champions League, and were also eliminated early in the English Football League Cup, which they won last season.

The only hope is the FA Cup. Manchester United, which beat Liverpool in the semifinals, will face Manchester City in the FA Cup final at Wembley Stadium in London on the 25th. It is a golden opportunity for Manchester United to play in the European tournament. If they win, they will receive a direct ticket to the UEL.

The situation is not bad. A large number of players who have been sidelined by injuries will return. Key defenders Lisandro Martinez and Luke Shaw, who have missed many games due to injuries this season, are said to return.
