Manchester United Football Club is a professional football club based in Old Trafford, Greater Manchester, England. Nicknamed "the Red Devils", the club was founded as Newton Heath LYR Football Club in 1878, changed its name to Manchester United in 1902 and moved to its current stadium, Old Trafford, in 1910.

Manchester United have won a record 20 League titles, 12 FA Cups, 5 League Cups and a record 21 FA Community Shields. The club has also won three UEFA Champions Leagues, one UEFA Europa League, one UEFA Cup Winners' Cup, one UEFA Super Cup, one Intercontinental Cup and one FIFA Club World Cup. In 1998–99, the club became the first in the history of English football to achieve the treble of the Premier League, the FA Cup and the UEFA Champions League. In 2016–17, by winning the UEFA Europa League, they became one of five clubs to have won all three main UEFA club competitions. In addition, they became the only professional English club to have won every ongoing honour available to the first team that is organised by a national or international governing body.

The 1958 Munich air disaster claimed the lives of eight players. In 1968, under the management of Matt Busby, Manchester United became the first English football club to win the European Cup. Alex Ferguson won 38 trophies as manager, including 13 Premier League titles, 5 FA Cups and 2 UEFA Champions Leagues, between 1986 and 2013, when he announced his retirement. José Mourinho is the club's current manager, having been appointed on 27 May 2016.

Manchester United was the highest-earning football club in the world for 2016–17, with an annual revenue of €576.3 million, and the world's most valuable football club in 2017, valued at £2.86 billion. As of June 2015, it is the world's most valuable football brand, estimated to be worth $1.2 billion. After being floated on the London Stock Exchange in 1991, the club was purchased by Malcolm Glazer in May 2005 in a deal valuing the club at almost £800 million, after which the company was taken private again, before going public once more in August 2012, when they made an initial public offering on the New York Stock Exchange. Manchester United is one of the most widely supported football clubs in the world, and has its strongest rivalries with Liverpool, Manchester City and Leeds United.

Vidic, we miss you. What a defender

How we miss you and Ferdinand! Now we don't have anything

Vidic! Surely one of the greatest center backs of all time. I remember we used to call his partnership with Rio the ministry of defence.

If Smalling was as fearless as Vidic was he would be a monster. Bring that mentality back!!! Love Vidic

This guy was a real beast of a centre back

I loved vidic but his performances Vs Liverpool where awefull,I bet he still has nightmares about Torres

All centre halves should have a nose like vidic and Bruce when they retire 🤣 what a signing he was 👏👏

VIDIC vs DROGBA..... In those days

One of two best defenders for United! Vidic and Stam! What a beast!

Man U though cmon Vidic ffs 🤦🏻‍♂️😂😂

Once a Red always a Red....Vidic best CD...!

Things that have happened since Ole's 2nd coming: Unbeaten in England Goals has been flying in Babies has been born And Pogba is yet to get a new hairstyle 😂

Love him but Torres destroyed him one of those matches

What a great defender was vidic

What a great defender was vidic

Vidic at the back with ferdinand... Simply a brick wall

Is it true that Man U and Man City are brothers.. If the answer is Yes then Man U do the right thing on Sunday

Please let Nemanja Vidic replace Chris at the back! 😁

Vidic did himself proud and he did us proud

reborn Vidic we need you back the best centre back in world

I miss him and Rio they were such a powerful duo in the back.

The club sorely misses a great defender like you Vidic! Thank you for the wonderful memories!❤

Vidic & Ferdinand best ever centre halfs to grace the epl..👍

Vidic please give some lessons to Jones and Smalling

Vidic the team needs you !!! Freaking Jones only is good at making people laugh 😂

Vidic 😍 best defender ever with Ferdinand !

I think LINDELOF really happy to see 2 our GREATEST DEFENDERS...VIDIC AND RIO FERDINAND..aww....I think LINDELOF and all the players will be motivated in the big match against Liverpool...

I'm sure #Ole called him to come and share a bit of experience with the likes of Jones and smalling 😄

These former stars know what if means to play Liverpool...Vidic gotta let the players understand THIS IS WAR

Let's sign him again! He's still better than the likes of smalling, Jones, Bailly

I dont care what people say... manchester united will forever be the greatest team in the world

Best moment was seeing Gerrard get sent off in his final game against Utd and all the utd fans were chanting wheres your league title 😂😂😂

Best ENGLISH CENTRAL DEFENDER on his Generation👏✊ I never forget the moment, it took place on EDIL FITR. #Ggmu

Solskjaer says he is willing to let Sir Alex Ferguson give the United team talk ahead of Liverpool. #mufc 👏🔴

Liverpool must not win this league. Even if it means putting Angel Gomes in goal for the Manchester Derby.

Not many defenders can take the ball down and smashed it that well, especially with his left foot

Cantona: “He (Ole) has got the soul of the club, and you feel that he has been inspired by Alex Ferguson. It’s like Johan Cruyff and Pep Guardiola in Barcelona – Ole Gunnar is the spiritual son of Alex Ferguson. So today, seeing United, I am so happy.” #mufc 👏🔴

Best goal for me was Mata's at JuanField!😉😁

I believe that we will beat liverpool no matter what others are saying but I believe Manchester is the greatest team of all time #ggmu 👏👏👏#win #win 😍❤

United is Red..liverpool watch out Here are the scores; United 2- 0 liv😘

Why not, too flexible for central defender to score such goal....

this man certainly has MU DNA🙌

One of the best was the year before when ferdinand won it in the 93rd minute 😅😅

manchester united always wins this game vs liverpool

Martial's debut goal for me is the best.

Please more video clips of shaqiri goals against Man United

Legend..vidic&rio.solid defender

Betting is favouring Liverpool yet we at home just got to show you that our home form needs the pedigree back which is the worst place to come and even get something for opposition specially Liverpool we used to beat them home and away we have to stop them from been like us

We will beat liverpool, im ready to bet 1,000 kenya shillings on Man United win but I hope we approach psg with a different strategy of wingers two centre midfield's, one attacking midfield nd a centre forward.... Our 4-3-3 doesnt seem to really connect well that much

Simply beat Liverpool this Sun Manchester United; it doesn't matter how the goals you score look like!!

I still remember that beautiful goal

Best goal to me against Liverpool was the one mata score at anfield

Martial's goal debut vs liverpool 🔥

There was one another - at last minutes Giggs assisted from free kick and Rio scored header. And that happened after 8 months of absence for him.

Always united for better or worse BRING EM#LIVERPOOL

Señor Y Señor with Grant and Romero


Comment on Facebook

Like if Romero is better than kepa

I love all our keepers can speak Spanish!

No idea Grant spoke Spanish! Quite impressive

Man city vs Chelsea THE only football match in history that everybody knows the winner before kickoff 💯💯😂😂😂

This is such a great video. Guys getting along well, the place seems so peaceful and happy now. Ole you have brought happiness back to millions. God bless Norway 🇳🇴

Kevin Foskin 😂😭😂😭😂😭 lee Grant is learning Spanish to feel more included with Dave and Rom

Manchester United Much love💓💝

And Valencia still doesn't speak any English...😒

Has Lee Grant done a bit of GCSE Spanish or something?

First to comment from Nigeria #GGMU

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer remove the mask 😊😊😊😅 I know you are Sir Alex Ferguson😂😂

Happy Birthday, Romero 🥳

Lee Grant talks and looks like the guy Dante from the Netflix series the inmate.


Happy Birthday to Chiquito Romero!!!

The betting says Liverpool will win it's really strange but I guess the truth is at old Trafford we are poor unless ole starts a new chapter which will make us really hard to beat at home

Best backup goalkeeper in the world
