Manchester United will sport yet another new home shirt for when Erik ten Hag takes charge. The Red Devils, like every other team in the Premier League, change their jerseys year after year. And the new kit certainly looks like it’s throwing things back to the 1990s when Sir Alex Ferguson ruled the roost.
Ferguson assembled a squad full of immense talent to win six league titles during that decade, despite Arsenal, Newcastle and Blackburn also competing. Also during that time, United often wore kits with collars and smart embroidery on – as a reflection of that time period. When you think of players such as Eric Cantona, Steve Bruce and Bryan Robson, it’s hard for those jerseys not to come to mind. Read More
Erik ten Hag is emerging as the front runner for what is possibly the toughest job in football – the manager of Manchester United. But how has a man who doesn’t love the limelight reached this possibility? Despite Mauricio Pochettino’s name having been in the ring for years, it seems increasingly likely that the man who will ultimately take the job will be Ajax manager Erik ten Hag.
Since Ferguson bowed out, bringing an end to the glory years of English football’s most successful club, United has burned through seven managers. Ten Hag is reportedly not completely convinced by the possibility of taking the job with many major issues that need to be addressed within the squad. Read More

The Ajax boss has emerged over the past few days as United’s preferred candidate to become the club’s next permanent manager. Although no plans have been finalised, United still intend on making an appointment before the end of the current season.

Sir Alex Ferguson would always be remembered as one of the greatest managers in the history of football. The Scottish took United from just a regular club in England to the most successful club in English football. As a manager, Ferguson was known for his hairdryer treatment as he fondly called it.
One particular incident that fans would always remember was a tackle on Manchester United player Denis Irwin against Feyenoord. Before this incident, Ferguson has always remained calm on the touchline fans never offered the opportunity of seeing the United Gaffer in a full “hairdryer” mode. In that UCL group game, United was leading 3*0 thanks to an Andy Cole hat trick when a disgraceful tackle was launched at Irwin. Read More
Embattled Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has the backing of legendary manager Sir Alex Ferguson and that proved vital in buying him some time in the quest to turn things around at the club.
Experienced Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano recentlystated that Solskjaer could have lost his job as the Manchester United manager in the wake of the heavy home defeat to Liverpool if not for Sir Alex Ferguson who was able to use his influence to ask for more time from the other board members with the conviction that Solskjaer has what it takes to turn the current run of poor form around for the better.

Legendary Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson was not in agreement with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer over the decision to start his talisman, Cristiano Ronaldo on the bench for the Everton game just before the current international break. Sir Alex Ferguson was filmed after the game, telling undisputed UFC champion KhabibNurmagomedov that Ronaldo should have started the game which ended in a disappointing 1-1 home draw for the Red Devils.
Ronaldo scored in added time to give Manchester United a first win in the Champions League this season via a 2-1 home win over Spanish team Villarreal and the game was just over two days before the Everton thus prompting Solskjaer to rest the Portuguese attacker. The decision to rest Ronaldo from the start backfired on the Manchester United boss as his team couldn’t beat an in-form Everton at home to make it two Premier League matches without a win at the Theatre of Dreams following the 1-0 home defeat to Aston Villa in their penultimate league game.

During the Sir Alex Ferguson’s Manchester United era, a lot of memories were created. The legendary manager created a domineering image of the club to the rest of the sides in the English Premier League, while he also painted a picture of the Red Devils to the rest of the European giants. The culture and DNA that the Scot instilled in the club during his reign as their manager was a formidable one and they were a force to reckon with across all of Europe. He had a lot of charisma, characteristics, and qualities of a top manager no doubt, but even though he also he had an eagle eye when it comes to spotting raw talents in players, he was way more than that.
Sir Alex did more than just sign players and have them thrown into the team just for the sake of it. He would follow up with that by establishing a great relationship with his players and do more than just coaching them on the pitch or on the training ground. There have been several occasions where some of his former players would admit to having a great time under his management because of how he was very careful in being an approachable manager as it had a lot of positive impact on all the players individually and on the team in general.

During the summer transfer window of the 2012-13 season, Manchester United completed one of the greatest signings in their history after luring former Netherlands international striker Robin Van Persie away from Arsenal. The Dutchman was already unsettled at the Emirates Stadium and then told the club that he would like to leave in order to try out another adventure at another club. After deciding to quit Arsenal, there was only one club he wanted to join and it was Sir Alex Ferguson’s Manchester United; the best team in the league at the time. Van Persie was also one of the hottest strikers in the league then so it seemed like a perfect match made in heaven.
United signed the striker for around £30 million from Arsenal and it would go down in history as one of the best bits of business they’ve ever done. The striker would go on to have a fantastic season at Old Trafford, scoring 20 goals in the Premier League as he helped them to win their 20th league title. It was also an amazing feeling for van Persie, who had not won the league title since playing for Arsenal and he only achieved it after spending just one full season at Old Trafford. Read More
According to reports, former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has given his approval for the club to sign Borussia Dortmund forward Jadon Sancho this summer. The Red Devils have been trying to sign the England international star for the last two years but they have not been able to reach an agreement with the German club for his signing and it has raised questions about whether they are truly serious about completing the transfer.
United’s current manager Olé Gunnar Solksjær has made it clear that Sancho is his priority signing and would love the club’s board to complete the deal as soon as possible. Dortmund have also accelerated their attempts to make sure that the deal goes ahead after they particularly reduced their asking price from the £120 million they were demanding two summer transfer windows ago to the £95 million they are demanding currently.
