Manchester United Owner Malcolm Glazer Passes Away

Malcolm_Glazer post

The Glazer family purchased United for £790m in May 2005 amid protests from the Premier League club’s fans.

However, the Red Devils went on to win five Premier League titles under his ownership, as well as the 2008 Champions League.

The New York-born American’s sons, Bryan, Joel and Avram, are all on the United board, with the latter two co-chairmen of the club.

“The thoughts of everyone at Manchester United are with his family tonight,” the Premier League club said.

Glazer’s death is not expected to have any significant effect on the ownership of United, with the family retaining a 90% share in the club.

Glazer was also the owner of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, turning the American football franchise into Super Bowl winners following his takeover in 1995.

Our condolences go to the family.

Louis Van Gaal Takes Over As Man United’s Manager

Louis van Gaal will take over as manager of Manchester United from the 2014/15 season. He has signed a three-year contract.

Louis, 62, has managed at the top level of European football for over 20 years and in that time has won domestic titles and domestic cups in three countries, as well as the UEFA Champions League, the UEFA Cup, an Intercontinental Cup, two UEFA Super Cups and domestic Super Cups in Holland and Germany.

He will take up his post after the FIFA World Cup, where he will manage the Dutch national team.


Ryan Giggs, English football’s most decorated footballer and the United player with the most appearances in the club’s history, has been appointed as assistant manager. Ryan took charge of the first team for the last four matches of the 2013/14 season.

Announcing the appointments, Ed Woodward said: “In Louis van Gaal, we have secured the services of one of the outstanding managers in the game today. He has achieved many things in his career to date and Old Trafford provides him with a fitting stage on which to write new chapters in the Manchester United story.

Jose Mourinho: “Manchester United Are Out Of The Title Race”

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho believes that Manchester United are out of the title race after his side’s 3-1 win at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

Samuel Eto’o notched his first hat-trick for Chelsea, who woke from an early slumber to punish poor United defending and put themselves firmly in the driving seat at Stamford Bridge.

The result moved Chelsea within two points of the Premier League summit, and put six points between themselves and fourth-placed Liverpool.

It also left United contemplating a seventh defeat in 22 league games under David Moyes. The Red Devils are now 14 points off the top of the table – a gap that Mourinho believes is too big to make up.

“They are 14 points behind Arsenal, 13 behind Manchester City and 12 from us,” he said.

“Maybe one team collapses but for three to collapse is difficult, so for them I think it is the fight to finish in the top four.

“They will do that with their pride and tradition and fight and hopefully they win against the other contenders because now we do not play against them in the league.”
