Manchester United were founded in 1878 and moved to their present stadium, Old Trafford, in 1910. Old Trafford can hold 76,212 fans and is the biggest club stadium in the Premier League. Manchester United's nickname is the 'Red Devils', and they have played at Old Trafford ever since 1910, apart from a few seasons in the 1940s when they played at Maine Road, the home of Manchester City, while Old Trafford was rebuilt. Man Utd play in red shirts, white shorts and black socks.

Manchester United are the most successful football team in Premier League history, and the history of English domestic football. They have won the Premier League title a total of 13 times, since the competition began in 1992. They also won the European Champions League in 1999 and 2008. In total, they have won 20 league titles, 12 FA Cups, 5 League Cups, 3 European Cups/Champions League titles and 3 other European trophies. No other English team has won more domestic trophies and only Liverpool have won more European trophies than Manchester United. 

Jose Mourinho is Man Utd's new manager.

Alex Ferguson was the Manchester United manager between 1986 and 2013, and was the most successful manager in British football history. He won nearly 40 trophies in his 27 years as manager, which is also a record for the longest-serving manager in British football history. In 1999, he became the only manager to win the treble (Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup). He became ‘Sir’ Alex Ferguson in 1999, when he was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II. Any manager who follows Alex Ferguson has a very difficult job, following one of the most successful managers of all time.

Sir Alex Ferguson and Ryan Giggs.

As well as the longest-serving manager in Premier League history, Manchester United also have had the longest-serving player. Ryan Giggs played in every Premier League season between 1992/93 and 2013/14. Giggs made over 1000 appearances for Man Utd and Wales and won more trophies than any other player in the history of English football. Giggs also made more assists than any other player in the history of the Premier League. Giggs retired from playing in the summer of 2014, and after working as an assistant at Old Trafford for the next two seasons, finally left the club in July 2016 after 29 years.

'What can I say about Ryan that hasn't already been said? He is a marvellous player and an exceptional human being. He has fantastic energy for the game and it is wonderful to see.' - Alex Ferguson speaking about Ryan Giggs after his 1000th career appearance.

Zlatan has arrived at Old Trafford!

In 2016/17, Manchester United finished a disappointing 6th in the Premier League. However, United won the UEFA Europa League, which meant they qualified for the Champions League for the first time in three seasons. Man Utd's top scorer was the Swedish international Zlatan Ibrahimovic with 28 goals. Unfortunately, Ibrahimovic suffered a long-term injury att eh end of the season and won't be playing at Old Trafford in 2017/18. United have been busy in the transfer market and have paid £75M to buy Romelu Lukaku from Everton to replace Ibrahimovic. They have also bought Victor Lindelof from Benfica (£31M) and Nemanja Matic from Chelsea. In 2017/18, United fans will be hoping to see United fight for the Premier League title and have a good run in the Champions League. Will Mourinho be able to get the team to the top of the Premier League?

"I am the manager of the biggest club in the UK. I am going to focus on our job and our club." - Jose Mourinho, Man Utd Manager.

Prediction 2017/18: 5th

Key player: Paul Pogba

When we use the word "while" as a name meaning some time without specification how much, do we need "since" or "for"? For example, I say: I have left university since a while or for a while?

I'm not a Man United fan, but I admire the scotsman manager Sir Alex Ferguson
He had made it difficult for any manager that will follow him at Man Utd, Because of the success that he brought to the club and the british football in general.
I think it's impossible nowadayes for a manager to stay for that long as Sir Alex Ferguson, even Arsenals' current manager Arsene has charged for 2 decades!

Being in charge of a world-class club for 27 yers is unbelievable, thats more than a Silver Yobel
