Manchester United unhappy with Premier League as youth team left completely in limbo

Manchester United’s youth staff and players are said to be becoming increasing frustrated at the lack of clarity surrounding the return of academy football. 

Neil Wood’s Under 23 side was second in the Premier League 2 Division 2 with a game in hand on leaders West Ham before the season was curtailed in March due to the coronavirus pandemic.

And according to a report by ESPN, the club have no clearer indication which division they will be playing in next season or when their campaign will start.

The delay in decision making will be exasperating for players and staff who have now returned to training at the club’s Carrington training facility.

As noted in ESPN’s report, the Premier League have had to redeploy plenty of their staff that were responsible for youth football for Project Restart and they will soon provide clarity on a return.

It is suggested that things could become clearer next week with a Premier League meeting scheduled.

The Premier League 20/21 campaign begins on September 12, six weeks after the end of this elongated campaign.

Some of United’s youth players may be given the chance to sign in the formality of the Europa League second leg against LASK at Old Trafford on Wednesday, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side already 5-0 up in the tie.
