In England, it is impossible to mention the top 2 clubs without making mention of Manchester United as far as English Football is concerned. It's either you call them the overall best team in England or you argue them to be the second best (which is actually not true). The team with the highest number of premier leagues title (before and after its named) in England have sure booked for themselves a great spot on the list of the greatest football clubs in England. Their achievements and consistency is one of the factors that always include them in the talks in the world of soccer.

Manchester United apparently is the team that has won more League titles than any other clubs as far as English football is concerned. The Red Devils have won 20 League titles, 12 FA Cups, 5 League Cups and a record 21 FA Community Shields. United have also won 3 UEFA Champions Leagues, 1 UEFA Europa League, 1 UEFA Cup Winners' Cup, 1 UEFA Super Cup, 1 Intercontinental Cup and 1 FIFA Club World Cup. In 1998–99, the club became the first in the history of English football to achieve the continental European treble. By winning the UEFA Europa League in 2016–17, they became one of five clubs to have won all three main UEFA club competitions. This is nothing but a little reminder that in England, The Red Devils are no joke.

However, we can't talk about the achievements of a club without making mention of who are responsible for it. All this trophy is all thanks to the coach and players who have trained day in and out to make sure their team is spotted in a beautiful position in history. To be precise, United is one of the very strong team that puts a lot of works on the shoulder of any man that finds himself in the position of a coach at Old Trafford. One thing about being coach in a team like United is, more is expected from you than any other clubs. United have had quite numbers of managers and I think they all have done a remarkable work. But there are some (or one) whose impact stands out more.

Talking of coaches, Manchester United have had a quite number of coaches ever since it was founded in 1878. From the beginning of the club's official managerial records in 1892 to the start of the 2018–19 season, Manchester United have had 22 full-time managers. However, the most successful among them all is Sir Alex Ferguson.

Alex Ferguson has achieved in Manchester United as a coach, what no manager in the English League history has done for their respective clubs. The Scottish man is also the longest serving coach to manage Manchester United. Alex Ferguson won most of the trophies that made United the club with the most trophies in England. He won 13 Premier League titles, five FA Cups, four League Cups, 10 Community Shields, two UEFA Champions League titles, one UEFA Cup Winners' Cup, one UEFA Super Cup, one Intercontinental Cup and one FIFA Club World Cup in his managerial reign of more than 26 years. Apart from contributing to the clubs other trophies, he's the one that won for them their only UEFA Cup Winner's Cup, UEFA Super Cup, Intercontinental Cup and FIFA Club World Cup. And ever since the exit of Ferguson, no manager has ever come close to winning a premier league for the team.

David Moyes took over the managerial job following the retirement of the Old Trafford legend on the first of July, 2013. He managed Man U for a season and won 1 community shield before he was sacked which saw Ryan Giggs take over as the caretaker manager. While United are still on the search for a permanent manager, Ryan Giggs managed the club for less than a month before Louis Van Gal was then signed as the new United manager on the 16th of July, 2014. Just like his predecessor, Van Gal managed the club for almost 2 years and won a single FA Cup. If duration is to be taken into account, it's safe to say Moyes's career at Old Trafford is a little better than his successor's.

Jose Mourinho, Sir Alex Ferguson's one time rival took over the managerial job at Old Trafford on the 27th of May, 2016 after Van gal. The Portuguese carrier as United's manager lasted for over 2 years before he was shown the way out in a situation that's a little bit dramatic. But during his 2 years spell at Old Trafford, Jose Mourinho won 1 UEFA Europa League (which is the only one United have to their gallery), 1 League Cup and a Community Shield for the Red Devils. Even though the former Chelsea boss's achievement is no where near the quarter of the achievements of the Scottish legend at Manchester United, It's still the best any coach after Alex Ferguson has ever done for the Club.

The club's current manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over the job on the 19th of December, 2018. He was first appointed as the caretaker manager to take over after Mourinho's exit. Solskjaer made a new club record after winning his first seven matches as a Manchester United boss which no manager at Old Trafford has ever done before. He was assigned the Job permanently on the 28th of March, 2019 after beating Paris Saint German at the UEFA Champions League. Though Gunnar has not yet included any trophy to Manchester United's gallery, he's believed to have handled the job more preferably than any manager has done ever since the exit of Ferguson. He fought his way to the third position on the Premier League table during his first season at Old Trafford, which is the best any United coach has ever done after Mourinho who finished second in 2017/18 EPL season which is his second year. As at the time of writing, Ole Gunnar is sitting on the second position on the Premier League table having equal points (33) with Jurgeon Klöpp's side after stealing 3 points from Aston Villa. A lot of fans claimed Solskjaer can really achieve something for the Red Devils if he's consistent with his new found winning attitude.

Considering his reputation currently as a manager at Old Trafford, Solskjaer is moving with a lot of energy. But is he the new messiah of Manchester United (Their Alex Ferguson in disguise)?.. Well, there's only one way to find out!!.
