Manchester to Manila?

Manchester United, is arguably the most successful English club in their history (major trophy count only). With high caliber players like David Beckham, Wayne Rooney, Eric Cantona, Ryan Giggs, Rio Ferdinand and even the current 5 time Ballon d’ Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo playing for the club, the possibility of winning a trophy is never impossible.

Even with the recent rise of their rival club, Manchester City, the support of the fans for the Red Manchester can still be visibly felt in any of their matches.

Even though the current club may only be a shadow of their previous league success, they are still finding ways to achieve something every year, with their 2017 trophy treble as a clear example.

Aside from Spanish club giants Real Madrid FC and FC Barcelona, there is also a very significant number of Filipinos who still supports Manchester United.
