Manchester United are remembering one of their finest managers today as it is the 25th anniversary of Sir Matt Busby’s death. Yesterday at Old Trafford, both sides paid their respects to one of the greatest managers of all time before United won all three points, fittingly, in tribute to their boss.

Busby won an incredible five Division One championships, two FA Cups and the 1968 European Cup and helped rebuild the club after the terrible Munich air crash in 1958. Now current manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has paid his own personal tribute to Sir Matt Busby, including telling a fine story from the 1999 Champions League final.

He said: “He laid the foundation and you can see the way Sir Alex Ferguson rebuilt the club if you like, under the values of Sir Matt. The beliefs and principles and it would have been his 90th birthday on the 26th May 1999, the Champions League final so of course I am aware of Sir Matt’s legacy. A story there is on the Champions League night, just before the game, his son and daughter are in the stadium, there are a couple of doves that fly up and they both looked at it and said ‘he’s watching’ and I think he would have been.”

Solskjaer has won each of his opening seven games in charge of United, a record that surpasses even Busby himself! Manchester United fans are head over heels for their new manager and having someone who understands the history and importance of some of their past legends only increases their admiration for him.
