After a season of turmoil which saw Mourniho leave halfway through, a sudden rise in results with the appointment of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to then only see results slide away as their hopes a trophy in the FA Cup and Champions League came to an abrupt end, the choice of a player of the season might be a bit much for most. This is what Luke Shaw felt as well while picking up the double he reiterated that the focus should not be the awards tonight but getting ready to bounce back next season after a disappointing season.
While the first team men struggled this season the Women’s team excelled in their first season coming top of the table of the FA Women’s Championship.
To get proceedings underway Solskjaer in his ever optimistic mood and opened up with a promise to entrust youth players in the near future
“I’m sure whoever wins the youth trophies we’ll see them in the first team, hopefully some of them will be on show on Sunday. I love young players who wanna improve and have no fear whatsoever, I’ve looked at the reserves and U18s this year and there are talents that will stay at this club for so many years. It’s nice to give them the opportunity to show what they can do.”
