Everyone remembers Glazer’s famous Manchester United squad. So where are all these players now, and what are they doing? So, let’s find out what happened to the legendary Manchester United squad players of that time or the MU’s GOAT
Back in 2005, the Glazers increased their influence on Manchester United. Of course, the club’s fans did not like it since the British did not want the Americans to become the owners of the club and the negative scale, which grew into protests in the stadium and beyond, only grew.
Glazer’s Man Utd starting XI:
- Roy Carroll.
- Rio Ferdinand.
- Mikael Silvestre.
- John O’Shea.
- Wes Brown.
- Ryan Giggs.
- Darren Fletcher.
- Quinton Fortune.
- Alan Smith.
- Wayne Rooney.
- Ruud van Nistelrooy.
Goalkeeper Roy Carroll still plays football. The 45-year-old goalie plays for Dungannon Swifts in Northern Ireland. After the player left Manchester United, he played in the Premier League for West Ham United and Rangers and for Olympiacos in the Super League Greece.
The legendary Manchester United centre-back was able to win several trophies with the club before retiring. However, he left the team after the 2013/14 season. In 2014, Rio Ferdinand moved to the Queens Park Rangers team, where he played until the end of his football career. Now, Rio commentates on football matches and runs his YouTube channel, Vibe with Five.
In 2008, Mikael Silvestre stopped playing for Manchester United. In the same year, the player signed a contract with London’s Arsenal, but the player’s performance for this club did not work out. He entered the field for Arsenal only 43 times. After the failure in London, the player moved to Werder Bremen, but he did not stay there for long either. Before the end of his career, the player still played for some time in India and the USA, after which he went on a well-deserved rest.
After the 2010/2011 season, John O’Shea left Manchester United. In the same year, he was signed by the Sunderland team. For this club, he played more than 250 matches in 7 seasons. John O’Shea ended his career at Reading in 2019.
Like John O’Shea, Wes Brown left Manchester United in 2011 for Sunderland, where he played for 5 seasons. In 2016, he moved to Blackburn Rovers, EFL Championship. The player ended his career the following season, playing for the Indian team Kerala Blasters.
Ryan Giggs is a Manchester United legend. After the youth team, he joined the main team of the Red Devils and spent his entire career at the club. Ryan was rightfully considered the record holder for the number of games played in the Premier League before Gareth Barry updated the record. After the end of his football career, Giggs received the post of assistant coach at Manchester United. In 2018, he became head coach of the Wales national team, but due to a scandal, he was suspended on 23 April 2021.
After Darren Fletcher left Manchester United in 2015, he spent 3 seasons at West Bromwich Albion and then 2 more at Stoke City. In the 2018/2019 season, Darren Fletcher finished playing with Stoke City already in the EFL Championship, after which he ended his football career. He currently works as a technical director at Manchester United.
Quinton Fortune left Manchester United after the 2005/2006 season. After this, he moved from club to club before ending his football career. In 4 years, he changed 4 clubs, Bolton Wanderers, Brescia, Tubize and Doncaster Rovers.
Alan Smith was an outstanding player, and Manchester United had high hopes for the player, but in 2006, in an FA Cup match, he came on as a substitute in the last minutes of the game and suffered a severe leg fracture. After rehabilitation, he returned to the team but could no longer gain a foothold in the first team. So after three years at Manchester United, he moved to Newcastle United in 2007 and played there until 2011. Then he went to MK Dons and then to the team of the third division Notts County, where he was a coach in addition to being a player.
Legendary Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has had a long and successful career with the club. In 2017, the player moved to Everton and started his career. In 2019, the player ended his playing career and began his coaching career. Currently, Wayne Rooney is the manager of DC United in the USA.
Ruud van Nistelrooy
After falling out with Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson, Ruud van Nistelrooy left Manchester United in 2006 and was signed by Real Madrid. The player finished his football career in 2012 at the Malaga club. After that, he started working as a coach. In 2022, Ruud van Nistelrooy took a managerial position at PSV Eindhoven.
