Meet the first Man Utd manager to truly understand the club since Ferguson

Casey Stoney has led United's women's team to success in their first season having demanded the best from the moment she got the job
This time 20 years ago, Sir Alex Ferguson was in the middle of masterminding the achievement that would cement his name among the greats of the game. Manchester United’s treble success in 1999 is the 10-day period for which the pre-eminent manager will forever be best remembered.
While the Scot’s long list of triumphs are never likely to be repeated, United have been left searching desperately in the six years since Ferguson’s retirement for a manager who can represent the values which made the club so great for so long.
In 2018 they found one. Whereas David Moyes, Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho unsuccessfully tried at various stages to stamp their own imprints on the club, when United went about recruiting a head coach for their new women’s team they hit the jackpot first time.
