Man United apply to establish professional women's team

Man United apply to establish professional women's team

Meanwhile, United's corporate media relations manager Andrew Lisgo said the prospect of launching a women's team remained "under review" and that a full update would be provided at the next meeting in May.

Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, has admitted that his team is now in transition and can not compete with their rivals, Manchester City.

If successful, United - now the only Premier League outfit not to have a senior women's side - intend to integrate the new team into the second tier of the Women's Super League.

Manchester United fans will be pleased to see their women playing in the popular United shirt as the club will be hoping that the team will win them many trophies in the seasons to come. However, there has also been calls of printing lyrics onto the matchday programme as well as putting the chants on the club's website, so that those who don't make it to matches all too frequently are able to learn any songs before they attend games.

United, in second place, are 16 points behind leaders Manchester City in the Premier League and the title could be decided in the Manchester derby at Etihad Stadium on 7 April.

"The squad would be based at the club's historic training centre at The Cliff".

United said they had submitted an application to the Football Association to join the second tier of the Women's Super League.

England Women head coach Phil Neville recently called on his former side to form a new women's team shortly after taking up his role with the national side. When they do set out their women's team it will be one to challenge City, Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool.

A singing section has been introduced at a number of clubs in recent years - perhaps most successfully at Crystal Palace - but the BBC claims United's singing section "has not made a significant improvement". "I am sure they are working to do that".
