Manchester United is regarded as one of the oldest football clubs in the Premier League. The team was formed in 1878, but under the name Newton Heath LYR Football Club. It was only in 1902 that it was officially named Manchester United.
The Red Devils are arguably the most successful team in the Premier League. This was even back when the League was known as the Football League.
From 1945 onward, after the second World War, it was also the beginning of one of the greatest eras of Manchester United. In other words, it was the era of the ‘Busby Babes’. However, in 1958, the rampant Busby Babes were halted in their tracks, by the Munich Air disaster, which claimed the lives of eight players. However, Matt Busby managed to rebuild the team once again.
Then, from 1986 to 2013, the next great Manchester United era began. Namely, the Sir Alex Ferguson era, where the Red Devils were dominant. Although they had a sluggish start, they came into their own in the 1990s.
Currently, after going through a few managers like David Moyes, Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho. Finally, the team has settled with United legend Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The team is owned by the Glazer family and the finances are managed by Ed Woodward.
