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.

Manchester United

Andreas Pereira gave MUTV his thoughts on progressing into the UEFA Champions League last 16. ... See moreSee less

MUTV: Andreas Pereira post-Valencia

 

Comment on Facebook

Phil Jones is the first #MUFC player to score an own goal in the Champions League since... Phil Jones. 🤣 (In 2011, versus Benfica)

Pereira is by far one of my favorite players on the team. Hard worker and terrific player! He deserves much more playing time than he gets.

Am I the only one who has never been pleased with any display from fellaini in midfield

that moment when lukaku made 35 touches for 70 minutes without a shot on goal😂😂

Before anyone comment Jose out... We have to look at the players too .. The problem is not Jose buh the players... How do we say this, a player that can't hold ball for long, that can't pass successfully... Now tell me how is it mourinho's fault

Fans chanting Jose Out for what??? ...He did what the Fans wanted to see Pogba and Andreas and what did they do ? I didn't see any impact with those two brought out to play Some good passes from Pogba and a long range from Andreas that's All,Why blame Jose for this and that Lukaku IDK when he's gonna learn to control a ball ..Bad first half performance and a better second half performance that's all I can say ...#Jonesout💯

Phil Jones agrees a new five year deal with Manchester united with a weekly pay of £250,000. The manger thanked the player for his contribution to the team and states that the new deal was a reward for his efforts. The player also thanked the club and promises to put in his best as he had always done. The new deal will see the player become one of the club's biggest earners and ensure that the player remains at the old Trafford till 2023.

The fact that Luis Antonio Valencia Mosquera can't speak English is still beyond me.🤔🤔🤔

And I would strongly suspect after that amateurish performance today that will be where the journey ends.

I would like to start by not thanking Valencia's best player, Phil Jones for scoring and providing an assist against us. If it wasn't for his "good" form against us, maybe we'd have won the game.

Tom Cleverley still better than Pereira

How do I blame Mourinho on this?

God help us on Sunday were going to need a miracle to get a draw

It been long since i watched the type of football valencia played last night...wao swift one two passes

Dont worry I belive Man united win Leg II #GGMU.

Man U 0:0 Valencia Valencia 2:1 Man U Who is stupid ? #joseout...

Pereire ur garbage ! Gave the ball so easly away!

He looked very frustrated and lost during the game

We need to see his clearly defined role on the pitch. It isn’t very obvious yet. He’s playing in many positions for now. It might be best to play him as no 10 or no 7

i have wasted my precious 2 hours for watching this s..t loads of ppl playing s..tball. I am seeing that Liverpool will play real attacking football and wins with 3:0 and after that being knock out by Baca at 16 of UCL with 6:1 in both agg:. After that top class players(Such as De Gea)will leave MU in the summer and Jose will also left with a loads of problems and a bunch of s..t players. MU is being awaited in the dark future.

omg, this was one of the worst performence I ever seen from Man!! we need players with more heart, this team is garbage! all defenders 2n class, no strikers 🤦‍♂️ and mourinho must go out! let play like 10 years ago! get „marko rose“ from rb salzburg, a young manager like tuchel or klopp, give him one season and a few players and ManU is back again!!! ManU paid more than 800 millions for what!? it breaks my heart to see whats going on with my club! 😔

Please appoint director of football most of the problems will be solved

Phil jones is the first player to score an own goal for man united since phil jones in 2011 vs benefica 😈

What kind of talent this guy has? Plz someone explain to me.

Today has been a bad day for Penaldo fans. Juventus lost, Real Madrid C.F. lost and Manchester United lost. #GGHalaForza

Manchester United

Juan Mata reflects on Wednesday's UEFA Champions League meeting with his former club... ... See moreSee less

MUTV: Juan Mata post-Valencia

 

Comment on Facebook

But Man United plays very well on play station what is wrong with them in real world?

What’s Spanish for “pure shite”? Oh yes, it’s “lukaku”

Pogba came to united the wrong time same as Martial Feel sorry for Rashford I miss Depay Ed please sack Mourinho please😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭

Did you play Juan? Went missing as per usual.

The club is in need of desperate help. Bring back Fergie.

Mourinho out... and please take lukaku with you!! I backed mourinho time and time again, and i dont care if this game had no bearing on our qualification, but these are games MANCHESTER UNITED should be winning!! Im fed up, i fell asleep half way through the game; i have no hope against Liverpool 😔 this is becoming sad and pathetic to watch... please someone make the change!

How can the Board continue to accept this terrible style of football. This is not Manchester United! This is not the attacking football we have grown to love and enjoy. Fed up with certain players taking 20 or 30 touches forward in to the oppositions half to turn and pass back to the defence. Fed up

It took 72 minutes to have an attempt on target. No wonder our fans were singing “What the f***ing Hell was that”

The most frustrating thing is Juve losing, had we of won we would have topped the group

The problem is it isn’t getting better it’s getting worse.

What exactly were fans expecting? Nobody expected Juve to slip up tonight so this game was irrelevant. Given the lengthening injury list, and with the busy Christmas period coming up the priority was always going to be 'no injuries'. Mission accomplished.

Jose and Theresa May still hanging on 🤣🧐 perhaps they should do a duet with the worlds most expensive violin of ''money money money''

Learning from today’s game - jose keep punishing United by playing lukaku, jones and keep himself on the team

Please sale Valencia to Valencia Dalot is far better than this old Equadorian. Then sale off Rojo,Jones,Fellaini,and their father Mourinho Man utd is just a house for rent not for permanent stay

Phil Jones !!!was this guy even scouted ???Everything scares him 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

These days I'd rather watch zee world dan united. At least they can ATTACK fellow family members

He's the next one out the door ,,,,for sure ,,,offers nothing for is ,,,pushed of the ball far to,easily ,,,recovering runs far far to slow ,,,,can't dominate midfield ,,,I thought Herrera next to go ,,,but I'll put Mata ahead of him,,,,a shocking player ,,far to,slow ,,,,

The only team united can win in the planet is Only Fulham. Even doubt to win on second round match. Because Mu is living in the glory of the past.

Turned off at 55th minute. I knew I was wasting my time watching the game. I didn’t want to feel that I would waste another 90 minutes watching United lose. We can only beat Fulham and we lose against all other teams. Embarrassing. Mourinho out!

They were that poor I turned over to watch Love Actually

Win lose or draw I stand by the team and support the manager. #GGMU United forever

Mourinho 1.fellani is a supersub. .can't start games 2.Valencia and Jones should never ever wear that shirt 3. Lukaku should be sold 4.Rashford and Martial should always both start together 5. Stop signing Giant Tall players who can't play football

Mata you slow poke useless can’t even Run any more and hopfully we play Barcelona so Mourinho gets sacked

it will happen again n again dont spec we will play good football with lukaku united badly need to sell him

mourinho need to be sacked...we need Zidane to manage MAN UNITED well
