“Van der Sar’s saved it, United again. The newly crowned Champions of England are the new Champions of Europe. 2008 is another vintage year”.
One hundred and thirty years since the clubs formation, Manchester United continue to dominate the game of football both at home and abroad.
“Sustaining success is so hard, but so so sweet”.
Three European Cups, seventeen League Championships and eleven FA Cups define the illustrious history of a club that’s nurtured the most talented players ever to have graced the English game – George Best, Duncan Edwards, Sir Bobby Charlton, Eric Cantona and Ryan Giggs – and perhaps British football’s greatest ever managers – Sir Matt Busby and Sir Alex Ferguson.
From humble beginnings, when the workers of the Newton Heath Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway first came together to play the emerging sport of football, Manchester United has acquired a special place in the hearts of supporters everywhere to become the most famous club in the world. Built on the raw talent and fighting spirit of the ‘Busby Babes’, who thrilled crowds all over Europe before tragedy struck in Munich, their spirit and style is still evident today, encouraged by Ferguson and epitomized by the modern day superstars – Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo.
“Manchester United are still the Kings”
For the Reds of Old Trafford, Manchester United will always be the Kings.
