Man Utd sponsors unhappy with no-show stars

Manchester United sponsors are feeling let down by the players.

The Daily Mail says they are said to be angry as the club's star players have been pulling out of events due to their on-field struggles.

United are currently seventh in the Premier League, below the likes of Sheffield United, with just 35 points from 25 games.

They've lost more league games than they've won since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer became the permanent manager, leading to speculation about his future.

There has also been fan discontent over the club's ownership under the Glazers.

According to their official website, the Red Devils are tied to more than 60 brands and organisations.

But due to the club's current plight, difficult questions are being asked of the squad at commercial functions, leading to some having withdrawn from scheduled events.
