Former Manchester United defender Wes Brown has revealed the key traits in the team while Sir Alex Ferguson was the manager. Speaking earlier this year on the various successful Manchester United teams under Ferguson in an interview monitored by MEN (Manchester Evening News), Wes Brown stated that the unity and togetherness were the traits synonymous with each Red Devils team under Fergguson.


Wes Brown came through the Manchester United Academy and he was named the best youth player at the club two times in a row before Sir Alex Ferguson decided to hand him a spot in the first team. The Englishman made his debut for Manchester United in 1998 and he went on to play his part in the historic treble won. In his first season with the senior team, Manchester United won three major titles in a single season. The Red Devils ended the 1998/99 season with the FA Cup, Premier League and Champions League titles and Wes Brown played 21 times in all competitions. The defender could have played more games for the Red Devils during the treble season if not for injuries.

Manchester United were handed an unfortunate injury blow in the following season when Wes Brown missed the whole campaign through injuries. His first two seasons in the Manchester United first team squad were badly affected by injuries. Wes Brown recovered from his injury woes to play regularly for the team in the next eleven (11) seasons. He was an important member of the defence as Manchester United beat Chelsea on penalties and emerge as European champions for the third time at the end of the first all-English Champions League final.

Wes Brown left Manchester United to join Sunderland in 2011 while he was approaching the final years of his playing career. He’s presently an ambassador at Manchester United.
