Gallery: Di Maria visits United's museum Our no.7, Angel Di Maria, visited the award-winning Manchester United Museum at Old Trafford this week to learn more about the legendary shirt he now wears. United's Argentinian star was joined at the Museum by team-mate David De Gea, and you can view a gallery of their visit by clicking the main image above. Angel said: "It was great to visit the museum and learn about the club’s history. It's an honour to wear the no.7 shirt that legends like George Best, Eric Cantona, David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo wore – I hope one day to also be considered a hero for the fans, just like they are." As well as the history of some of United's most talented no.7s, current exhibitions include a look at Best's incredible career, celebrating 10 years of Wayne Rooney and a fascinating examination of wartime United. The Manchester United Museum is free to enter until the end of October, so everyone can learn all about the greatest football story ever told. Fans can complete th ...
After a busy summer transfer window and the release of all squad numbers for the 2014/15 season, Manchester United have new incumbents of several red shirts. Among them, loan signing Radamel Falcao will wear no.9, record capture Angel Di Maria has taken no.7 and Belgian starlet Adnan Januzaj is the club’s new no.11. All three will hope to live up to the reputation of some bona fide United legends to have worn those numbers down the years. No.7 is the most iconic of all jerseys at Old Trafford, having been donned by some of the team’s all-time greats, including George Best (who could legitimately lay claim to no.11 as well), Bryan Robson, Eric Cantona, David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo. Those five have a combined 1,802 appearances and 563 goals. Sir Bobby Charlton is probably our most famous no.9 and he wore the number for most of his epic, 758-game Reds career. More recently, Andy Cole plundered over a century of goals in the shirt as he helped United win the Treble in 1998/99. Ryan Giggs made the n ...
Gary Neville hits out at Manchester United over Welbeck sale Gary Neville admits he cannot understand why Manchester United sold Danny Welbeck to Arsenal. Welbeck joined Arsene Wenger’s side on deadline day in a €20 million [£16m] deal, to be replaced at Old Trafford by Colombia superstar Radamel Falcao on a lucrative one-year loan deal. Former United midfielders Paul Scholes and David Beckham have been quick to express their “sadness” at the departure of the Manchester-born 23-year-old. And Neville, who works with Welbeck in the England set-up, believes Arsenal underpaid for the striker and feels United’s decision to sell is questionable. "I can’t work it out [why Manchester United sold Welbeck],” Neville told talkSPORT. “After all the prices I’ve seen paid this summer and, obviously I've been working with him the last week, I'm thinking how is it just £16 million? "There’s been right-backs and left-backs galore who have been bought for £15m this summer. How have they got him for ...
Newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport claim the 27-year-old Juventus star has now undergone - and passed - tests ahead of a stunning move. Those reports are backed up by Chilean El Mercurio newspaper. They state the checks took place in Chile and it remains unclear whether Juve gave the green light for them to go ahead. Starsport reported earlier how a possible deal was moving towards completion. Vidal's agent Fernando Felicevich jetted in to finalise a switch to Old Trafford last night. The midfielder has reportedly verbally agreed to join United, who will smash their transfer record to get him. The £47m fee will eclipse the £37.1m they spent on Juan Mata in January. It is understood United have tabled a four- year £120,000-a-week deal to Vidal, which will double his current salary. He is poised to wear the No.7 shirt - previously pulled on by greats including George Best, Cristiano Ronaldo and David Beckham - at Old Trafford.
REIN'S SPECIAL WEEKLY FEATURE THE "TRANSFER LOVE STORY" BETWEEN ENGLAND AND SPAIN. WHO RULES? Am done with my World Cup duties so i'm back to bring you more interesting and revealing stories. Today my focus is on the TRANSFER MARKET and particularly the dealings between the English Premier League and SPANISH La Liga. In the beginning, there was David Beckham. The English captain as at the time packed his bags at Old Trafford in 2003 and accepted the untold riches offered by Real Madrid.He was closely followed by Michael Owen a year later. Both were undoubted stars for the two English clubs with the biggest world-wide appeal, yet both were cashing in on wealth and opportunity abroad. Later on Cristiano Ronaldo’s also switched from Old Trafford to the Bernabeu in 2009. Ronaldo had undoubtedly latched on to a football nation on the up when he switched to Spain. Fabregas followed later but his story has a lot of twists and turns. And there was Gareth Bale, who was one of the star performers who also made hi ...

Manchester United: Do not lose 'Class of 92' spirit - Louis Saha Former Manchester United striker Louis Saha has warned against damaging the spirit of the 'Class of 92'. Ryan Giggs has been put in charge at Old Trafford following the dismissal of David Moyes, assisted by Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt and Phil Neville. Yet there is no guarantee any of them will be around next season if Dutchman Louis Van Gaal takes charge. "If you lose those kind of players and that kind of spirit and charisma, it would be a shame," said Saha. "After what happened with Sir Alex Ferguson's departure, you may lose out in the same way if they leave." Along with former England captain David Beckham and current England coach Gary Neville, the current United coaching staff form one of the most decorated youth teams in English football. So famous did they become, a film about them was released last year, with the same 'Class of 92' title by which they are collectively known. Yet Frenchman Saha, who scored 42 goals in 124 appearances f ...
Borussia Dortmund - take a bow! For a team with only three world class players in your line-up for today, i.e. Robert Lewandowski, Marco Reus and Mats Hummels, you owned a team that I've compared time and time again to :poop: (without Cristiano Ronaldo). Reminds me of a scene with Ronaldinho Gaúcho (for FC Barcelona) against Ronaldo Nazário de Lima, Zinedine Zidane, David Beckham and Luís Figo (for :poop: Real Madrid C.F. :poop: ). While I admire Figo and Beckham, I even respect Fat Ronaldo and Zidane. But their choice playing for :poop: Real Madrid C.F. :poop: was their worst mistake. Beckham still openly says that his move from Manchester United to Real Madrid was his worst ever decision. It won't be sooner to hear the same from CR7 who has 'allegedly' (according to their desperate manager) sworn his future to Real Madrid, while he still privately keeps leaking to the media that he might return home sooner (to Old Trafford).

Man United deny rumours Beckham and Qatari royal family are poised to buy out club for £2bn after Glazer family 'lose interest' Manchester United have rubbished suggestions the Glazer Family have lost interest in the club and a £2billion Qatari bid fronted by David Beckham is poised to take over. According to reports, Beckham and his 'Class of '92' teammates Ryan Giggs, Nicky Butt, Paul Scholes and the Neville Brothers are involved in a bid funded by the Qatari royal family. They have approached the Glazer family - who own 90 per cent of the Old Trafford club - on a number of occasions and the price remains the only stumbling block t had been suggested in The Sun that the Glazers have become disillusioned with running the club as they lurch from one disaster to another under David Moyes.

The Manchester United "Class of '92" are set to front a multi-billion pound takeover of the club,according to The Sun Former United players David Beckham, Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt, Gary and Phil Neville, along with current star Ryan Giggs looks set to lead a mega deal bankrolled by Arab oil money. If reports are to believed, the Glazers - who purchased the Red Devils in 2005 - are ready to sell the Old Trafford outfit. A source told The Sun: “The Glazers have lost interest. Everyone knows the club is effectively for sale. “It’s just a question of getting the right price where they recoup their money and make a bit to save face.” United legend Beckham looks set to play a huge role in the deal, having spent time at Qatari-owned Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain before retiring from the game at the end of the 2012/13 season.

Rooney pullin a David Beckham while David Beckham is watching at Old Trafford
he new Manchester United contract Wayne Rooney signed last month has made him the fourth-highest earning player in the world, according to France Football magazine. • MP: Rooney wages justified Rooney, 28, put pen to paper on a five-and-a-half year deal at Old Trafford in February that reportedly took him beyond the 300,000-pound-a-week barrier, making him the first player to do so in the Premier League. Estimated to make 24 million euros in total this year by the weekly French magazine, Rooney's annual salary of 19 million euros is actually the highest of any player in the top 20 of the rankings, though he still trails the top three, Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar, due to his lower endorsement revenue. Messi, who topped the chart for three successive years before being deposed by David Beckham in 2013, weighs in at a global total of 41 million euros. A sizeable 26 million euros of that comes from endorsements, with boot supplier adidas providing him with some eight million annually alone. R ...

Five things Moyes should work on in Dubai with Manchester United. 1) Defensive Focus Manchester United conceded a number of late goals this term – goals that have cost them points and goals that may end up costing them European football if they don’t improve their defensive focus, especially in the late stages of games. The Red Devils have conceded the highest percentage of their goals in the period between 70 minutes and full time (24%) – there must be attention paid to concentration, fitness, shape and team defending. 2) Attacking Crosses Meanwhile, the reigning champions’ 2-2 draw with Fulham at Old Trafford last weekend saw the Red Devils put in 81 crosses with just 12 of them being met by a teammate. Whilst Moyes’ tactics have been criticized in the week since, there is nothing wrong with crossing – it was one of Sir Alex Ferguson’s best weapons in the days of David Beckham, Gary Neville and Ryan Giggs. Back in those days, however, United had players like Dwight Yorke, Andy Cole and Ruu ...

Mata could be a Man United great - Ryan Giggs Ryan Giggs reckons Juan Mata could become one of Manchester United's all-time greats. United smashed their transfer record to bring Mata to Old Trafford and the Spaniard has made a relatively decent start so far. Mata played a part in the build up to Robin Van Persie's opener on his winning debut against Cardiff and he also set up the Dutchman against Stoke - although United eventually fell to defeat against the Potters. As the most decorated player in the club's history, Giggs knows a thing or two about what it takes to be known as a United icon. And there was little hesitation in the Welshman's reply when he was asked if Mata, 25, could become a United great. "I think he could be," the midfielder told MUTV. "He's obviously got the talent. "I don't want to put too much pressure on him but I don't see why not." While Mata has a long way to go before he matches the achievements of Giggs, Paul Scholes, David Beckham and co, there is little doubt among the United ...
Manchester United will announce Juan Mata’s Old Trafford squad number when the £37.1 million club record transfer is registered with the Premier League on Monday – raising the prospect of the Spaniard becoming the latest player to wear the iconic No 7 shirt. With Wayne Rooney occupying the No 10 shirt worn by Mata at Chelsea , the 25-year-old is likely to be given the option of seven or nine – both currently vacant. With George Best wearing a variety of numbers depending on his position each match, and more often 11 than seven, Bryan Robson is regarded as United’s first celebrated No 7, the midfielder having worn the shirt for more than a decade until Eric Cantona in November 1992. When Cantona retired in 1997, David Beckham was handed the No 7 shirt by Sir Alex Ferguson, who then bestowed the shirt on his replacement, a teenaged Cristiano Ronaldo , in 2003. Michael Owen and Antonio Valencia have since worn the shirt. Valencia relinquished it last summer to return to No 25 after a difficult 12 mo ...
Manchester United: Robbie Savage says 12 players should go By Robbie Savage BBC football pundit Manchester United must spend £200m if they are to rebuild their squad to the standard that once made sides visiting Old Trafford feel helpless. United lost for the third time in a row with defeat at Sunderland on Tuesday and I think as many as 12 of the 27 players who regularly feature for them are now on borrowed time. Blunt United Wayne Rooney tops the Premier League's assist-makers this season but he is the only United player in the top 40. Manchester City, meanwhile, have eight players on the same list The players are getting shot at by people like me, but they should look at themselves. Are they running hard enough? Are they tackling hard enough? Are they putting the same effort in as they did for Sir Alex Ferguson? These are the questions I'd like to ask them, because they do not seem to be. The fear factor I had to deal with at Old Trafford when the likes of Roy Keane, Paul Scholes and David Beckham wer ...
Arsenal had just won the Premier League and the FA Cup. Ferguson wanted to know what Arsenal's secret was, so he went down to Highbury to pay them a visit. Once at the Arsenal ground, he asked Arsene Wenger what his secret was. "Simple," said Arsene, "ah keep mah playerz sharp by testing not only zeir bodeez, but also their minds. Regard!" Arsene calls out to Denis Bergkamp, "Denis! 'Ee is your father's son, but 'ee is not your brother. 'Oo is 'ee?" Denis Bergkamp calls back, "oh, that is simple. He is me!" Ferguson is very impressed, and travels back to Old Trafford. Once back home, he calls out to David Beckham: "David! Come here, I have a riddle for you!" "What's that boss?" "He is your father's son, but he is not your brother. Who is he?" David Beckham thinks hard for a minute, and then asks if he can take the problem home and think about it overnight. At home, David phones up his teammate Jaap Stam and tells him the riddle. "Oh that's easy," says Jaap Stam, "that is me!" The next day David Beckham fi ...
BBC to honour Sir Alex Former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson will be honoured with a special Diamond Award at Sunday's BBC Sports Personality of the Year awards. This award marks the 60th Year of BBC Sports Personality. Sir Alex guided the Reds to a 13th Premier League trophy in May this year to further strengthen his position as the most decorated manager in British football history. After leading Aberdeen to unprecedented success, he went on to win a total of 38 trophies in his 26 years in charge at Old Trafford. As well as the 13 league titles, he also won the Champions League twice, the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup, five FA Cups and four League Cups. In 1999, he delivered a unique treble of the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League. Sir Alex retired in May after 1,500 games in charge of United but remains at the club as director. In addition to all the silverware he won, Sir Alex is credited with developing the careers of some of football’s most famous talents, including David Beckham, ...
Keane hits out at Fergie 10 December By Matt Barlow Roy Keane has reignited his war of words with Sir Alex Ferguson with a withering series of remarks about the Former Manchester United boss. Keane opens up on his bitter exit from Old Trafford and the breakdown of his relationship with Ferguson in an ITV documentary to be screened tonight. He talks of Fergie’s methods of ‘power and control’ and his ‘massive ego’, hails Brian Clough as ‘without a doubt’ the best manager he worked for and omits Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes and Gary Neville when choosing the finest United team from his former team-mates. Keane brands Neville ‘the weakest link’ and, in reference to Giggs, says: ‘Having a great career doesn’t mean you’re a great player.’ Included in his team instead of Fergie’s favourites are rebels who fell out with the Former United manager, including Jaap Stam, Paul Ince, David Beckham and Ruud Van Nistelrooy. ‘You don’t win league titles by having choirboys in your dressing room ...
David Beckham said he expects his mother to cry when she watches a film about his time at Manchester United. The former England captain contributed to a feature-length documentary which focuses on the Old Trafford side's youth players from 1992. The film examines the difficult period in Beckham's life after he was sent off at the 1998 World Cup. Speaking at the premiere of The Class of 92 at London's Leicester Square, he said: "There will be a few tears in there from my mum I'm sure." Beckham attended the event with his wife, Victoria, and their three sons Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz. The documentary covers the period from 1992 to 1999 when Beckham and his team-mates Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt, Ryan Giggs and Phil and Gary Neville rose up through the squad to achieve top level success. He explained how much he valued the support of his fellow players when he faced tough periods in his career. "I think that is part of history," the 38-year-old said. "It's the same for all of us six. There were good times, there ...
★★★ Neville, Beckham & Scholes on how Man United’s win over Liverpool in January 99 sparked their treble success ★★★ A new clip from the upcoming movie about Manchester United’s “Class of 92″ has been released involving Gary Neville, David Beckham and Paul Scholes. The clip, filmed at an empty Old Trafford stadium, captured the three Man United legends recalling some of their memories from playing at the Theatre of Dreams. Beckham spoke about his first goal for United against Galatasaray, Scholes forgot what his first goal was, while Neville brought up the Red Devils’ 2-1 win over Liverpool in the fourth round of the FA Cup back in 1999. The Sky Sports pundit had a crystal clear memory of how his inability to stop a right wing cross lead to Michael Owen’s opener for the Reds, but United swung the match with late late strikes from Dwight Yorke and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, and Neville pinpointed that result as the spark for the club’s historic treble at the end of that unparalleled ye ...
The Rundown: Manchester United v Arsenal: 10 famous matches Manchester United host Arsenal at Old Trafford on Sunday for the latest instalment in one of English football's fiercest rivalries. Here we pick out 10 of the best meetings between the two clubs over the past 25 years. 1- Manchester United 2-1 Arsenal (a.e.t): April 14, 1999, Villa Park (FA Cup semi-final replay) Ryan Giggs's wonder goal can be forgiven for stealing the headlines in what was an exceptional match. United took a first-half lead with a classy long-range strike from David Beckham in a game that ebbed and flowed, until the Gunners equalised midway through the second half with a Denis Bergkamp shot that deflected off Jaap Stam and squirmed under the body of Peter Schmeichel. It took on a whole new dimension when Roy Keane was sent off for a second yellow card and, with the introduction of Marc Overmars, Arsenal were all over United. Nicolas Anelka had a goal disallowed for offside and United's dream of an unprecedented trophy haul seem ...
Kangaroos players have brushed shoulders with some of the biggest names in world sport, including David Beckham, on a private visit to English Premier League club Manchester United. The Australians are based in Manchester during the Rugby League World Cup and have taken the opportunity to mingle with the likes of Robin Van Persie and Wayne Rooney on a private tour of Old Trafford on Thursday. Former United superstar Beckham was also at the ground as Cameron Smith, Johnathan Thurston and Paul Gallen took time out from preparations for Saturday's clash with Fiji in St Helens. The trio swapped jerseys with Ryan Giggs, Michael Carrick and Rio Ferdinand. United legend Giggs is an avid rugby league supporter and was among a group of Red Devils players who attended the third State of Origin game during a pre-season tour to Australia earlier this year. "The skill was unbelievable, the atmosphere as well," Giggs told NRL.com on Thursday. "The whole build-up during the week, we were in Sydney and it was like the Ch ...
REVEALED: THE THREE SUPERSTARS FERGIE TRIED TO SIGN FOR Man Utd Submitted by tribalfootball.com on Mon, 10/28/2013 - 09:27 1 Share on email Share on print Former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson missed out on three amazing signings during his time in charge. The Daily Star Sunday reports Fergie had a deal wrapped up for Paolo Di Canio after United won the Champions League in 1999. The Italian had accepted the offer before then coming back to tell Old Trafford chiefs he wanted more money, which they declined. Ferguson also agreed a deal to bring Ronaldinho to Old Trafford too. The legendary boss was keen to get in talismanic players like the Brazilian and he was ready to spend £19m to snap him up. The transfer was being funded by the sale of David Beckham but, like the Di Canio deal, it fell through at the last minute. Ferguson asked chief executive Peter Kenyon to ring Arsenal to enquire about the availability of Patrick Vieira in the 90s. Kenyon informed Fergie he had but a day later the Scot me ...
Kenny Dalglish on Alex Ferguson's autobiography: If Steven Gerrard isn't top class, why was Fergie desperate to sign him? Sir Alex Ferguson's obsession with Liverpool, and Steven Gerrard in particular, has perplexed Kenny Dalglish Not top class: But then why was Fergie after the Liverpool skipper? Getty Sir Alex Ferguson is ­entitled to say whatever he wants about Manchester United in his latest autobiography. His words. His prerogative. But there were a few things about the book and its timing that surprised me and many others, including United fans. For a start, Sir Alex has written so many books already I’m not sure why he chose this one to settle so many old scores. The timing is bad. It’s a bit strange to bring it out now when the new manager at the club needs help and support. Its publication – and some of the upset it has caused at Old Trafford – is hardly ideal for David Moyes. It was a bit odd to see Sir Alex’s comments on some of the players who had served him so well and had brought ...
Alex Ferguson states that David Beckham had to leave old Trafford because Beckham thought he was bigger than the club.Give it a couple of years under Moyes and the tea lady will be bigger than the club.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger on Friday said he wouldn't be surprised to see Alex Ferguson go back on his decision to retire. Former Manchester United manager Ferguson quit Old Trafford at the end of last season after 26 and a half years in charge. The Scot was back in the headlines this week with the publication of an updated autobiography which included a number of stinging rebukes aimed at the likes of David Beckham, Roy Keane, Steven Gerrard and Rafael Benitez. Wenger has his own dedicated chapter in the book, entitled 'Competing with Wenger' - much of which is centred around the infamous 'pizzagate' at Old Trafford in October 2004 when United ended the Gunners' 49-match unbeaten Premier League run. The Gunners boss had a spikey relationship with Ferguson at times, but they are more friendly these days. And Wenger, now the longest-serving manager in the Premier League following Ferguson's retirement, is not certain it will be easy for his old rival to just simply walk away forever and the Frenchman su ...
Former Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson launched his new autobiography on Tuesday, lifting the lid on his relationships with stars such as David Beckham, Cristiano Ronaldo, Roy Keane and Wayne Rooney. Ferguson said Beckham became too obsessed with fame in the latter years of his Old Trafford career and reiterated his claim that Rooney asked to quit the club at the end of last season.
Dean Saunders on the season so far at Old Trafford: "I look at Manchester United now and they aren't right in the middle of midfield, they don't have the pace and sharpness that players of the past have had like Roy Keane, Paul Scholes and David Beckham."

Michael Laudrup believes Sir Alex Ferguson was wrong to lift the lid on his dealings with some of his former players in his autobiography. David Beckham and Roy Keane were among the ex-Manchester United players to come in for criticism from Ferguson as the Scot made public the goings-on in the Old Trafford dressing room during his trophy-laden tenure. But Swansea manager Laudrup does not believe it is fair to reveal behind-the-scenes events, particularly when managers customarily demand loyalty to the group from their players.
read this reds, well worth a read trust me... Roy Keane has accused Sir Alex Ferguson of not knowing the meaning of loyalty after the Former Manchester United manager criticised him and other former players at Old Trafford in his new book. Keane responded witheringly after Ferguson reopened the pair's long-running feud by saying the Former United captain "absolutely overstepped the mark" in a notorious but never-aired MUTV interview that fast-tracked the Irishman's departure from Old Trafford in 2005. He also effectively rubbished Keane's chances of making a career in football management. Other Former United players are criticised in the book, among them Owen Hargreaves and David Beckham. Keane told ITV on Tuesday night: "I think I do remember having a conversation with the manager when I was at the club about loyalty. In my opinion I don't think he knows the meaning of the word. "It doesn't bother me too much what he has to say about me but to constantly criticise other players at the club who brought hi ...
Premier League - Fergie: I'm not settling old scores The eagerly-awaited update to "Managing My Life", his first extensive view on the world, published in the wake of United's historic 1999 Treble-winning campaign, landed on Tuesday morning. Ferguson then spoke for 45 minutes at a press conference in central London. All the expected topics were raised. Indeed, chapters have been devoted to Roy Keane, Ruud Van Nistelrooy, Liverpool, David Beckham and Wayne Rooney, all of whom Ferguson fell out with at some stage of his magnificent career. It makes grim reading for some at times. And Ferguson was equally forthright under wider questioning afterwards. But he insisted it was only a summing up of events of significance he felt United fans deserved to read about. "You talk about the number of players I have had," he said. "There are bound to be one or two issues and you have to deal with them. "It is not a matter of settling scores. It is a matter of explaining why I had to make certain decisions. "For all the ...
In his explosive new book, Sir Alex Ferguson writes of Wayne Rooney's desire to leave, how David Beckham became too big for his boots, why Steven Gerrard isn't as good as Paul Scholes and how relief swept through the Old Trafford ranks when Roy Keane departed for Celtic in 2005.
Time for Rooney to leave old Trafford? The England striker is still keen on an Old Trafford exit, while Gareth Bale is playing catch-up in Madrid and Roy Hodgson faces a defining night on Tuesday. Sir Alex Ferguson used to follow the simple rule that no player is ever bigger than the club - and Manchester United should take their former boss' lead as the next Wayne Rooney saga threatens to unfold. Goal revealed on Friday that Rooney had refused to open talks over a new United contract - his current deal expires in 2014 - before we reported on Friday that Arsenal have been encouraged to bid for the striker. Rooney has been in outstanding form this season but how much longer can he be allowed to take United for a ride? Ed Woodward and David Moyes made their point in the summer by refusing to sell the 27-year-old to Chelsea but now they must start planning for the star's departure. Rooney has already sought a move away from Old Trafford twice and, by refusing to even talk about a new deal, is backing United ...

David Beckham puts his lowest point behind him against old foes Argentina... Player: David Beckham Match: England v Argentina, 7 June 2002, Sapporo, Japan Having fired England to the 2002 World Cup finals with a trademark free-kick against Greece at Old Trafford, who else but David Beckham would grab centre-stage when the national team renewed its rivalry with Argentina in Japan? Argentine skipper Antonio Rattin's sending off at Wembley in 1966 had left a sour taste despite England's 1-0 win and Diego Maradona's 'Hand of God' goal 20 years later created another contentious talking point between the two countries. Then, in 1998, Beckham was harshly vilified back home for his red card, after flicking out a leg against Diego Simeone in France, and while he had answered his critics perfectly since then, he still had unfinished business to attend to in Sapporo. The draw for the finals ensured the United midfielder would face is nemesis in England's second group-stage match and his big moment arrived after 42 m ...
Manchester United 5-0 West Ham United (Premier Division) Manchester United fans celebrated an emphatic 5-0 win at Old Trafford this afternoon. Things did not get off to a good start for West Ham United as cultured striker Robin Van Persie seized on an error by Andy Carroll to score a well struck effort. Then followed controversy as Manchester United were denied claims by experienced midfielder Michael Carrick for a penalty. Striker Javier Hernández doubled Manchester United's lead with a poorly struck effort from inside the penalty area on 36 minutes. Scholes scored with a powerful effort in the 40th minute to extend the lead further. An error from West Ham United's Marouane Chamakh allowed striker Adnan Januzaj to score a well struck effort. Cultured midfielder David Beckham completed the rout with a good header from just inside the six-yard box on 87 minutes. Player of the Match: Javier Hernández (Man Utd) Attendance: 74,721

Sky Sports expert Gary Neville has warned Wayne Rooney against quitting Manchester United this summer. England international Rooney is reportedly wanted by Arsenal, Chelsea, Barcelona and Paris Saint Germain after requesting a transfer at the end of last season. But Three Lions coach Neville, who was a team-mate of the striker at United, thinks the 27-year-old would be making a mistake if he leaves Old Trafford. Neville said in an interview with Talksport: "I played with Wayne for many years. He's a fantastic footballer. "Personally, with my allegiances, I'd never recommend anyone leave United, because I believe it is a great stage to play football and you can achieve what you want there." Neville added: "I've seen David Beckham and other big players leave United and it really is something that comes down to the individual and the club. "I've seen Ryan Giggs, when he was 27, linked to Inter Milan, Juventus and AC Milan and stay." Meanwhile, Neville is also backing a change in English football's mentality ...
April 2003: Falling in love with football The headlines were shared by David Beckham and the Brazilian Ronaldo, who scored five goals between them, but Real Madrid’s extraordinary Champions League victory over Manchester United held a more far-reaching significance. Among the spectators at Old Trafford that night was an unknown billionaire Russian who was sufficiently captivated to decide that a football club should be his next purchase. Abramovich quickly settled on Chelsea as his desired club. As well as the London location, the share structure meant Chelsea was relatively quickly attainable. A meeting was swiftly arranged at Stamford Bridge between Abramovich and then chief executive Trevor Birch. “I wasn’t totally convinced he was the real thing,” admitted Birch. Abramovich made no attempt to haggle over money and accepted the asking price. The meeting lasted less than 20 minutes. Birch contacted Ken Bates, then Chelsea owner, and a meeting was arranged later that day at the Dorchester Hotel. ...

Manchester - In the transfer market this season, Manchester United linked with Cesc Fabregas and Robert Lewandowski. According to Rio Ferdinand, it's stupid if the player refuses to play at Old Trafford. 34-year-old defender was confirmed that there was no better place than with the Red Devils if you want to be a footballer greater. The former Leeds United player Cristiano Ronaldo's take an example. Portuguese player was assessed Ferdinand could be like at this time due to playing with Manchester United. Therefore, the British player took Fabregas and Lewandowski did not hesitate to join the MU. "If Manchester United came to bid, you have to accept it. Though you are a good player, you will be more intense at this club and one example is Cristiano Ronaldo," he told The Sun. "Players like Rya Giggs, Roy Keane, David Beckham, Andy Cole all become great players at United. If you are an ambitious player, then you should playing at a top club. At the age of 23-27 years, won many trophies is important, "he clos ...

INTERNATIONAL NEWS:UK POLITICS. Beckham: Sporting Icon Courted by Politicians The PR-savvy footballer has proved a valuable asset for Prime Ministers past and present in the UK PLC charm offensive. Newly retired David Beckham and Sir Alex Ferguson are two sporting icons who have been courted relentlessly by Britain's politicians over the years. Fergie was knighted by a Labour Prime Minister. How long before Becks becomes Sir David? Or Sir Alex Lord Fergie of Old Trafford? Both retirements drew tributes from the most senior politicians in the land. Greeting news of Beckham’s retirement, a No 10 spokesman gushed: "The Prime Minister's view is that David Beckham has been an outstanding footballer throughout his career." Entirely appropriately, however, the spokesman added: "But not only that, he has been a brilliant ambassador for this country, not least if we remember all the work he did on helping us win London 2012." And he concluded: "The Prime Minister's message would simply be to say: congratulations ...

From Eric Cantona to Eric Djemba-Djemba, we take a look at Sir Alex Ferguson’s best and worst signings as Manchester United boss. Ferguson was a keen promoter of home-grown talent but his incredible collection of silverware would not have been possible without some stunning transfer coups for Manchester United. Beginning with Eric Cantona and ending with Robin Van Persie, Ferguson has usually spent money wisely at Old Trafford, although there have been some famous flops... BEST 1. Eric Cantona (£1.2m) Signed from bitter rivals Leeds United for just £1.2 million in 1992, the feisty French maverick was influential in United winning the title a year later. Kung-fu exploits aside, the charismatic Cantona went on to win three more titles and remains a true United icon. 2. Cristiano Ronaldo (£12m) When Ferguson signed Ronaldo for £12m from Sporting Lisbon in 2003 to replace David Beckham, many questioned his judgement but the Scot moulded him from a flashy winger into a prolific goalscorer who netted 42 t ...
Invariably when a player exhausts the patience of Sir Alex, his days at Old Trafford are soon cut short. Just ask Jaap Stam, Roy Keane, Ruud Van Nistelrooy or David Beckham. Rooney be careful with sir Alex Ferguson.
Sir Robert Charlton Often known as Bobby Charlton, this former English player is considered to be one of the greatest footballers of all time. After playing nearly all of his club football matches for Manchester United, Sir Charlton was voted as the fourth greatest player Manchester United has ever had. Before announcing retirement in 1970, he made significant contribution to Manchester United's win in the Football League of 1965 and also winning the World Cup medal for England in 1966. David Beckham This poster boy for Manchester United had always dreamed of playing at the magnificent Old Trafford and he did and how! He has been pivotal in Manchester United's monumental success with his superb football skills in the late 90's. He is most loved face of the international media and of football. David Beckham took the number 7 t-shirt from Eric Cantona and wow! Now after all this, no wonder every football lover wants to 'Bend it Like Beckham'! Steven Gerrard Steven Gerrard, another gem of English football is ...

Alex Ferguson's philosophy is behind the longevity of Manchester United's homegrown players, says Paris St Germain midfielder David Beckham. The former England captain and United player is still active at 37, having joined PSG on a five-month loan at the end of January. Former teammate Phil Neville, 36, plays at Everton and the 39-year-old Ryan Giggs, who started his youth career at Manchester City but ended it at United, is still at Old Trafford after signing his first professional contract there in 1990. "The majority of the Manchester United players who started in the mid 1990s - Ryan Giggs, Nicky Butt, Gary Neville, Phil Neville, Paul Scholes and I - are still on the pitch," Beckham told French sports daily L'Equipe on Friday. Butt and Gary Neville have recently started coaching careers at United and England respectively but Scholes returned to the field in January 2012, eight months after calling it quits as he sought to help his club through an injury crisis. "I think it is because Sir Alex Ferguson ...

When Stewart arrived in Manchester, following a solid formal education in design theory, he found in swinging sixties Manchester, a city that perennially attracted more talent than there were jobs available.

OUR LEGENDS ALL HAVE A SPECIAL PLACE IN THEIR HEART FOR Manchester United “I am not a man of many words but I can honestly say that playing football is all I have ever wanted to do and to have had such a long and successful career at Manchester United has been a real honour.” - Paul Scholes “I’ve always said I wouldn’t want to play for another English club… I’m honoured by the offers I had from the Premiership teams, but I didn’t want to play there unless it was Manchester United.” - David Beckham “I spent six years at United and I owe them everything that I am today. I made history at United and won many trophies. It was a pleasure to play at Old Trafford.” - Cristiano Ronaldo “I signed a contract at 16 which promised me £20.75 a week, so I didn’t come into this for money. I came here because I loved playing football and I loved United.” - Gary Neville “When I think football, I think Manchester United. I still support United and always will. I will die with them in my heart ...
Latest gossip,news and transfers Tottenham could sell star man Gareth Bale to provide a summer transfer war chest, the Sunday Times claims. Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has refused to pay over £10m for a player this window, pricing them out of competition for players such as Leandro Damiao, the Internacional striker. Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas would rather spend big this summer than sign cheaper players now. David Beckham will use his influence to try and convince four big-name England stars, including Steven Gerrard, to join the MLS, the Sunday People reports. The former England captain will approach his old team-mates Peter Crouch, Ashley Cole, Gerrard and Michael Carrick in a bid to convince them to end their careers in the US. The players have been identified by MLS bosses as key targets and would be paid handsomely – around £4 million a year – if they signed up. Beckham has attracted interest from Monaco, Paris Saint Germain, Perth Glory and Shanghai Shenhua. Aston Villa are ready to sel ...

Alex Ferguson has always insisted that referees should be respected. The Manchester United boss angrily confronted official Mike Dean at Old Trafford on Boxing Day. But on March 22, 2008, Fergie said it was “absolutely ridiculous” for managers and players to abuse refs. He said: “We are talking about respect for referees at grassroots level and I think that is absolutely correct. “The haranguing of referees is absolutely ridiculous — we know that. It’s not right. “We see it as an issue. Since the situation with Andy D’Urso (when the ref was blasted by Roy Keane, Jaap Stam, Nicky Butt, David Beckham and Gary Neville in 2000), we’ve not done anything like that.” FOOTBALL fans around the country were up in arms last night as Alex Ferguson escaped an FA rap for haranguing referee Mike Dean. Fergie steamed into Dean, his linesman AND the fourth official before the start of the second half for his decision to allow a JonnyEvans own goal during Manchester United’s 4-3 win over Newcastle. Th ...

Arsenal fans need to learn from Man Utd supporters! Schemical and Ronaldo both moved on from Man Utd on there own requests, while the likes of Jaap Stam, David Beckham and Rvn fell out with Sir Alex, and were sold. My point is, Ronaldo and Schemical both left [on there on requests] while on top of their games, we accepted that Schemical wanted a new challenge, while CR7 wanted to fulfill his dream to play for Real. But, both players are welcomed back to Old Trafford like hero's! While Stam, Beckham and Rvn all left after falling out with Sir Alex, but we the fans still welcome them to the red half of Manchester with open arms. Not like Arsenal fans, who have turned against Nasri, Clichy and RVP after they left for City's millions and United's proud heritage and history! Two out of three wanted a big wage pack while the other at 29, wanted silverware and honours but Mr Wenger and his board showed they were interested just in profits!
GOING BACK IN TIME . A LITTLE HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF 92 * Football: Manchester United's class of '92 SATURDAY 13 FEBRUARY 1999 EVEN BEFORE Manchester United won the FA Youth Cup in 1992 rumours were circulating in football that this was a crop to compare with the Busby Babes, who won the first competition in 1953. United's first team had just been pipped of the title by Leeds making it 25 seasons of sorrow since the championship had been won and it was in search of consolation that 14,681 went to Old Trafford to watch the second leg of the final against Crystal Palace. They got it via a 3-2 victory (6-3 on aggregate) and with it an invitation to the birth of greatness. The Class of '92 was just that. Normally a youth side will yield one first-team player, two if the club is lucky, but of the XI who started for United on May 15 1992, four became England internationals - Ryan Giggs, David Beckham, Gary Neville and Nicky Butt - while the two substitutes, Keith Gillespie (now Blackburn) and Robbie Savage (Le ...

Manchester United summer signing Alexander Buttner has been describing the force of the Sir Alex Ferguson hairdryer treatment. The 23-year-old moved to Old Trafford from Eredivisie club Vitesse Arnhem in a move that was met with some surprised at the time, but Buttner made a terrific debut to his United career by scoring in a 4-0 win over Wigan Athletic. He was speaking to Dutch magazine Voetbal International when he gave some surprisingly open quotes about Ferguson’s famed blasts of anger at players not carrying out his orders accordingly. According to Buttner, the Scot is indiscriminate when it comes to handing out dressing downs to his stars, with reputation meaning nothing if his instructions aren’t being carried out to the letter. The young left-back also claims that the level of fury spouted by the Red Devils boss was unheard of in his native country. “I've never seen anyone so angry as he can be. It is something that would be unprecedented in the Netherlands, I swear,” he said. “And what ...

Ferguson statue unveiled Richard Jolly November 23, 2012 Sir Alex Ferguson pronounced himself a proud man after a statue of him was unveiled by his wife, Lady Cathy Ferguson, at Old Trafford. - Wenger praises Fergie The Manchester United manager paid tribute to his players as many of his past greats joined his current squad for a ceremony. The statue, made by sculptor Philip Jackson and showing Ferguson with his arms folded, is outside the North Stand, which was renamed the Sir Alex Ferguson Stand to mark the 25th anniversary of his appointment in 1986. Former players including Eric Cantona, Andy Cole, Denis Irwin, Gary and Phil Neville, Bryan Robson, Peter Schmeichel, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Ruud Van Nistelrooy, Edwin van der Sar and Dwight Yorke were present while Cristiano Ronaldo and David Beckham pre-recorded tributes apologising for their absence.

Football world hails Sir Alex To mark the unveiling of Sir Alex Ferguson's statue on Friday, outside the stand named after him at Old Trafford, MUTV spoke to a host of current and ex-players, fellow managers and even a former Prime Minister about the boss... "I think the manager has been so successful because he’s passionate about Manchester United and he’s a born winner. He knows how to win games, how to handle pressure and how to look after his team and his players. He was like a father figure to me. I moved up from London to Manchester and he always said to me ‘if you’ve got any worries, come and knock on my door – it’s always open.’ I was scared to go and knock on his door because of who he is but he always made me feel as if I was part of a family at Manchester United." - David Beckham "I’ve known Alex quite a long time now and he’s a great guy to be with and has always been a huge supporter and friend to me. He’s one of these people that has a strength of character that immediate ...
Although I fully support Rio Ferdinand's stance for not wearing the "kick it out" shirt because of the pathetic punishment given to John Terry for his racist remarks, I can't help but think, having incurred Fergie's wrath, that his days at Old Trafford will soon be over. You only have to look at Jaap Stam, David Beckham, Roy Keane, Ruud Van Nistlerooy and Carlos Tevez as proof of that.
"...The feeling of just stepping out at Old Trafford is special in itself." David Beckham.
Old Trafford youngster on Bernabeu radar. Real Madrid are reportedly considering a move to sign ManUnited keeper David De Gea according to CalcioMercato . The Spanish giants seemingly see the young Old Trafford custodian as an ideal long termreplacement for Iker Casillas and indeed a player of sufficient quality to keep the Bernabeu captain on his toes. Man United spent £17m to bring the 21 year old keeper from Atletico Madrid just over ayear ago but thus far this term Sir Alex Ferguson has preferred Dane Anders Lindegaard over the Spaniard, handing De Gea three Premier League starts from the opening seven matches of the campaign. A move back to La Liga may well tempt the young goalkeeper and Real Madrid areclearly adept at luring players from Man United to the Spanishcapital, having signed the likes of David Beckham, Ruud Van Nistelrooy and Cristiano Ronaldo in the recent past. De Gea has already made a few notable errors as United keeperand Ferguson may well feel that Lindegaard is the more reliable ke ...
On This Day in 1996: David Beckham scores as beat 1–0 in the league at Old Trafford.
Wayne Rooney is ready to assume the 'Eric Cantona role' for England and help to nurture his young team- mates. Rooney, with 76 caps, is regarded as one of the most experienced players in Roy Hodgson's squad and is in line to captain England in Friday's World Cup qualifier with San Marino. Steven Gerrard is suspended and Frank Lampard is struggling to overcome a knee injury. The squad has now lost more experience following the retirement of John Terry and the Manchester United man accepts he has to be the one offering support and assistance, just as Cantona did at Old Trafford to the likes of Gary Neville and David Beckham. "There are a lot of young players in the squad and I always try to speak to them and offer advice," said Rooney. "I remember Alex Ferguson telling me what a big help Cantona was to all those younger players at United. "It is something I can try do for England and hopefully help bring the best out of them, as they can bring the best out of me."
Man Utd Last time vs Gala United 4 Galatasaray 0 | UEFA Champions League | Wednesday 7 December 1994 When Manchester United last hosted Turkish giants Galatasaray, a fresh-faced youngster from Leytonstone made his Champions League debut. David Beckham was actually one of four young guns in the United line-up; Nicky Butt, Simon Davies and Gary Neville were the others, with the latter pair combining to put the Reds in front after just three minutes at Old Trafford. Davies collected a cross-field pass from Neville and smashed a low finish into the bottom corner. Eric Cantona went close to adding a second before Beckham opened his European account, driving home from 20 yards. The Turks were on the ropes and, after the interval, Sir Alex's side pressed home the advantage, Roy Keane ghosting past two defenders to slot home the third, before Bulent's own goal made it 4-0 after great work by Cantona. Although United still bowed out of the 1994/95 competition, the seeds were sown. Five and a half years later, Beck ...
Preview: Galatasaray Date, time and coverage: Wednesday 19 September, 19:45 BST kick-off. Live on Sky Sports 4. Also follow it live on ManUtd.com with text and radio commentary. Form guide: Domestically, United have responded well to the opening-match defeat at Everton, reeling off three consecutive wins and scoring 10 goals in the process to move up to second in the table. Galatasaray are in hot form too as Fatih Terim's side are unbeaten this term with the 3-3 draw at Besiktas the only fixture that has not yielded three points. Selcuk Inan's late penalty secured the Super Cup against Fenerbahce at the start of the campaign and the Turkish champions are already top of the Super Lig table again. Last meeting: The Reds hammered the Istanbul giants 4-0 at Old Trafford in December 1994 in a match fondly remembered for David Beckham's first goal for the club. Fellow rookie Simon Davies also got on the scoresheet, with Roy Keane and an own goal by Bulent Korkmaz sealing a comprehensive victory - even if wasn't ...
Rooney's four-week break is set to provide a glimpse of what life would be like for United without the Croxteth-born striker and, judging by the reaction of fans thus far, it could be argued that little will change. Clearly, only results on the pitch can settle such a discussion, but in picking Van Persie and Kagawa against Fulham and winning, Ferguson has made the England man's absence seem more palatable. Of course, this is a tactic that we have seen so many times before from the former Aberdeen boss; the path to the Old Trafford exit is a well-worn road and one littered with the carcasses of promising careers. Paul Ince once formed a vital part of a title-winning United midfield, but his ego and inability to work on the Scot's terms saw him moved on to Inter and subsequently fail to lift a trophy – the First Division play-offs aside – for the rest of his career. Years later, David Beckham's long-running spat with Sir Alex, again borne of perceived attitude problems, facilitated a move to Real Madri ...
When Cristiano Ronaldo arrived at Old Trafford in 2003 he asked for the no 28 shirt he had worn at Sporting Lisbon, which was held by Mark Lynch. But Sir Alex Ferguson wanted him to be a legend and gave him the shirt of a legend - vacated by David Beckham (who had taken the 23 at Real Madrid as there was no budging Raul). Ronaldo said: "After I joined, the manager asked me what number I'd like. I said 28. But Ferguson said 'No, you're going to have No. 7,' and the famous shirt was an extra source of motivation. I was forced to live up to such an honor."
