Manchester United Relegate From English Premier League

Manchester United F.C. – Many would say that they are one of the greatest football clubs of all time, even though they may not be performing as good as they used to right now. They are by no means doing badly, they finished second in the Premier League season, just after Manchester City, and won the Carabao Cup. It’s just that everyone seems to hold them at such a high standard, and rightly so.

They’re a dominant force in the Premier League and are by far the most successful club in the division, and English footballing history, having won 13 league titles since its creation in 1992, under the management of Sir Alex Ferguson. Under his leadership, United never placed below third. Their last Premier League title was back in the 2012-13 season, which was Furgerson’s last campaign before his retirement. If you were to take the Football League First Division into consideration; the Premier League’s predecessor which began in 1888, The Red Devils have a total of 20 wins, which is a record. Taking into consideration how good they are, during the history of their existence as a team, did they ever get relegated?

Since its formation, their worst Premier League season so far was back in 2013-14, right after Sir Alex Ferguson departure, where they placed 7th in the competition. Manchester United struggled to adapt under their new head coach, David Moyes. As a result, they did not qualify for any major European leagues.

Way before the inception of the Premier League, or even the Football League First Division. They’ve been relegated five times since then.
