Manchester United have been handed a 1/5 star rating for their food after guests were given raw chicken.

On and off the field, Manchester United have had a comical season, with Erik ten Hag‘s Reds sitting seventh in the Premier League table and out of the Champions League.

The club have seen 18 players injured at various points of the campaign, and to add to the list, they have been handed a one-star rating out of a possible five by the Government’s Food Standards Agency.

This comes after it was revealed that guests in attendance at The Health, Safety, and Environment Show in November were served raw chicken thighs at Old Trafford.

Manchester United are set to appeal the decision, according to the Daily Mail, with a score of 1, meaning “major improvement” is “necessary” surrounding their kitchen staff.

A spokesperson for Trafford Council said: “We can confirm that the hygiene rating for Old Trafford (Manchester United) has been downgraded from five to one.

“This follows a food hygiene investigation following an incident where undercooked food was served at an event on November 21.”

According to The Athletic, the club were “conducting an internal investigation” after multiple people attending the event alleged that they had “become sick” from the uncooked chicken. 

It was also noted that the event in question had taken place at Old Trafford “in the past few months,” but added, “the precise nature of the event is not yet known”.

The Daily Mail have now revealed that “direct action” is being taken against the club, pending their appeal.
