This majestic football club was initially founded in 1878 but the name of Manchester United wasn’t acknowledged that same year. This name that has been on the lips of almost every European citizen was designated in 1902 and from then history began.
There are several important records established by this English football club notably that this is the first English club to win the European Cup it’s the team that set the start for this trophy and another record is the coach of Manchester United, Sir Alex Ferguson. He has been running the team since November 1986, being the coach with the most fruitful career at the same football club, and of course fans would want him to be in the lead for many years to come.
Leaving aside the many trophies won by Manchester United in the English football, we will make a reference to the international trophies:
We should also mention that the Red Devils are the only English football club that succeeded winning the Premier League, the FA Cup, and the UEFA Champions League defeating Bayern Munich during the same year, during the 1998–99 season. This success is also known as “the Treble”.
If we already established that at the trophies chapter the Red Devils are a team to be feared of and deeply respected, in the financial chapter the things look great as well. In 2012, Forbes designated Manchester United as the No.1 most valuable team in sports, having a total value of $2.23 billion. We cannot talk about this football club and its finance without mentioning one record transfer: Cristiano Ronaldo went to Real Madrid in 2008 for the extraordinary sum of £80 million.
Since we are talking about great players of all times we must mention the regrettable 1958 Munich air disaster when 8 players lost their lives. Harry Gregg was a survivor who led his team in the FA Cup final 3 months after the accident and was designated the best goalkeeper at the 1958 World Cup. We must also mention Bryan Robson who was for 12 years in a row the team captain, an unbeaten record so far. Another possible record is more than 900 appearances for Ryan Giggs, who also succeeded in scoring in every season.
Continuing our list of famous players let’s not forget about: Fabian Barthez, an eccentric but also a great player, Edwin Van Der Sar, Peter Schmeichel a Manchester United legend, Wayne Rooney who is an United player even today, David Beckham one of the best and most loved United player. I left aside three players: Sir Bobby Charlton, George Best, and Denis Law who scored 237 goals in approximately 400 appearances. These 3 players formed the Holy Trinity and their statue is present at Old Trafford.
Manchester United is a trademark, is a global brand, is a football club that makes profit but most importantly is a team with passionate supporters who follow their team in every corner of the world they are the Red Devils that succeeded the greatest comebacks and wonderful victories despite any tragedy.
