Jack Robson officially became the coach of Manchester United on December 28, 1914. He was also the first coach to be allowed to manage the club full-time. After the outbreak of World War I, which hindered the development of world football, Jack Robson had to work hard to help the club stay in the top league, although they did not achieve any success. In December 1921, Robson resigned, and one year later Man United was relegated. 7 months later, Robson died of pneumonia.
As soon as he became the coach of Man United, Mourinho brought in quality new players and won the English FA Cup in 2016. That year, Man United finished 6th in the league standings, but Mourinho quickly brought the team the League Cup and Europa League titles, earning them a return to the Champions League. In the following season under Mourinho, Man United did not win any more titles.
Walter Crickmer was the first person to hold the role of team manager twice in his career, rather than being a true coach. The first time, he took over as manager of Manchester United when Bamlett left and the second time was from 1937 to the end of World War II. In 1958, Walter Crickmer passed away in the Munich air disaster.
It can be said that Matt Busby is the most beloved coach in the history of English football. He was the one who built a strong and quality team for Manchester United in the 1940s and 1950s and 1960s. In his first 5 seasons as coach, Busby helped the team finish in second place four times and won their first title in 1952. In the 1955-1956 and 1956-1957 seasons, he led the team to consecutive championships and to two consecutive FA Cup Finals.
However, in 1958, the Munich air disaster occurred unexpectedly, taking the lives of many players and leaving Matt Busby with the difficult task of rebuilding the team. After five years of rebuilding effort, Manchester United finally tasted success again in 1963 by winning the FA Cup after 15 years of waiting. For the next two years, the club continued to win championships and in 1968, they became the first English team to win the European Cup.
On November 6, 1986, Alex Ferguson became the manager of Manchester United, and he went on to become the most successful coach in the history of the club, and in English football as a whole. Before taking over at United, Ferguson had already had a very successful career in his native Scotland.
In his first five years at United, Alex Ferguson did not bring any trophies to the club, but in 1990, he won the FA Cup, which saved his job to some extent. In his 27-year tenure, he brought in many quality players to the club, including legends such as Peter Schmeichel and Eric Cantona.
