How many times have Manchester United won the Premier League?

Until Sir Alex Ferguson called time on a legendary managerial career in 2013 with his decision to retire, Manchester United were the dominant force in the Premier League era.

Prior to the advent of the Premier League, United had been 26 long years without a league title, since the days of Matt Busby, Bobby Charlton, George Best and Denis Law in 1967.

Fergie set about restoring the club to its former glory, which included a squad clearout and a revamp of scouting and the youth team. But the process took time and in 1990 there were rumours that the Scot was close to the sack, saved only by winning the FA Cup.

United finished second to Leeds in the final season of the old First Division in 1991/92 but were then primed to take over English football for the two decades that followed.
