Manchester United ‘asked unfit player to play’ against Crystal Palace as starlet to leave

There are only two games left in the 2023–2024 season. Manchester United supporters will be relieved that the season is almost over, but what has been going on at Old Trafford lately?

In addition, an academy graduate has been advised he must “find another club” when his present contract expires. It has been alleged that United manager Erik ten Hag deployed an unfit player in their most recent match against Crystal Palace.

Jonny Evans played against Crystal Palace despite failing fitness test

Manchester United fielded a depleted team against Crystal Palace on Monday night – and it could have been even more sparse, had Jonny Evans not played. He had only been in training for ‘two days’ prior to the encounter, with Ten Hag conceding that the Northern Irish international was ‘not ready’.

Speaking to the club’s media team, Ten Hag said: “Huge respect for Jonny that he stepped in [for Harry Maguire], but he wasn’t ready to go into the game. He only had two days’ training, so that is one example.

“But he played for 90 minutes, and it was a real reward that he did this. But of course he can’t play to the levels what he can normally do.”

Manchester United’s Brandon Williams told to ‘find a new club’

The summer is when Brandon Williams’ contract with Manchester United expires. Football Insider reports that Red Devils manager Erik ten Hag has instructed Williams to “find a new club,” thereby ending his time there.

Williams has spent this season on loan at Ipswich Town, who were promoted to the Premier League. His contribution to their campaign has been minor; he has only appeared in 15 Championship games while scoring two goals. As it stands, it’s unknown where he will go next.
