Manchester United – Matches and Tickets 2013/14

Manchester United are one of the most famous Football Clubs in the World, due to their on the field success and the history within the Club. Another reason the Red Devils are popular around the globe is the sheer number of truly great players that have worn the red shirt, with Sir Bobby Charlton, Denis Law, George Best, Eric Cantona, David Beckham, and more recently Robin Van Persie. Manchester United tickets for the 2013/14 season are available now.

Current

Manchester United had a good season last year as they won the Premier League Title by a huge eleven points, thus reclaiming it from their neighbours Manchester City in the process. Dutchman Robin Van Persie had a fantastic debut season, with his twenty six goals ensuring he won the golden boot for the second successive season.

The Club’s legendary manager Sir Alex Ferguson has now retired, with fellow Scot and former Everton boss David Moyes replacing him. It is a herculean task for Moyes as he is undoubtedly following one of the greatest managers of all time, so the expectation will be for the unprecedented success to continue with him at the helm. David Moyes has made some good moves already, as he has added former Manchester United player Phil Neville and current playing veteran Ryan Giggs to his coaching staff, thus strengthening his managerial team.

There has been only one transfer made by Manchester United so far this summer, with young Uruguayan right-back Guillermo Varela brought in. However rumours persist about Barcelona starlet Thiago Alcantara potentially arriving at Old Trafford, and the Club have had a twelve million pound bid for England full back Leighton Baines rejected by Everton, so whether the red devils try once more remains to be seen.

Along with Wayne Rooney and Robin Van Persie, David Moyes has a wealth of talent to pick from, with Captain Nemanja Vidic, Ashley Young, Nani, Tom Cleverly, Danny Welbeck, and Shinji Kagawa available to the new boss, so they will be aiming to retain their title this year.
