Manchester United’s Amazing Five-Year Run

Just how good have the last 5 years been for Manchester United?

The emotional high of overtaking Liverpool in the league title stakes was soon tempered by the disappointment of losing a 2 Champions League final to Barcelona in 3 years, but in truth, United’s numbers are nothing short of astonishing.

Some of the stats to get you started:

  • Manchester United are ranked the most valuable sports team by Forbes.
  • Manchester United are the #1 ranked UEFA team with the highest coefficient in the last 5 seasons (10 points clear of their closest rival, Barcelona).
  • 4 league titles in 5 years (with the 5th one missed just by a single point).
  • 3 Champions League finals in 4 years.
  • The third richest football club (behind Barcelona and Real Madrid).
  • Barcelona are rightly the world’s best football club. However, the standards Manchester United have set in the last 5 years outstrip anything their closest rivals – could even dream of accomplishing in the current climate. And whereas Barcelona benefit from the collective brilliance of their players, United have only one man to thank for their success – Sir Alex Ferguson.
