Welcome to the Sligo Branch of the Manchester United Supporters Club, we will update you with all the latest news from the Sligo Branch of Manchester United Supporters Club.

Ronaldo:

Cristiano Ronaldo has left United by “mutual agreement” in the aftermath of his making serious allegations in an interview, in an ignominious end to a supremely successful career at the club. He has left without a payoff and there are no restrictions on whom he can play for next.

United had appointed lawyers to explore potential action against Ronaldo for alleged breach of contract but their preferred option was to engineer his departure and that was confirmed on Tuesday.

A statement said: “Cristiano Ronaldo is to leave Manchester United by mutual agreement, with immediate effect. The club thanks him for his immense contribution across two spells at Old Trafford, scoring 145 goals in 346 appearances, and wishes him and his family well for the future. Everyone at Manchester United remains focused on continuing the team’s progress under Erik ten Hag and working together to deliver success on the pitch.”

Premier League

United head into the World Cup break in 5th place and just 3 points behind Spurs with a game in hand, finishing off with a 2-1 win away at Fulham.

Eriksen slid in at the back post to put United ahead on 14mins with his first United goal, and he could have doubled the lead before the break. United had a double oppertunity to extend the lead at the start of the 2nd half but Leno in Fulham's goal was equal to it.

Fulham grew into the game and scored to level the game with a goal that came after a number of United errors. It looked like another game that United were going to regret leaving chances behind, but young Garnacho with a beautiful goal in the 93mins earned the 3 points to send the travelling reds home happy.  

United now have a 6 week break before Nottingham Forest come to Old Trafford on Tues 27 December.

Europa League:

Having finished as Group runners-up United have been drawn to play Barcelona, who dropped down from the Champions League, in the knock round of the Europa League. United will play the 1st leg away first and the 2nd leg at home on 23 February.

As a Branch we have no tickets on offer for this game.

Villa regained the lead on 61mins when Dalot turned the ball into his own net. Rashford made it 2-2 on 67mins befor Fernandes put United ahead on 78 mins and McTominay adding the 4th in injury time.
