Why Manchester United Are Called the Red Devils.

Manchester United were known as "The Heathens" when the club was formed in 1878. In those days, they were first known as "Newton Heath Football Club".

They just renamed themselves as Manchester United in 1902 as a component of their club rebrand, when their most normal name was essentially 'United.

In 1945, when Sir Matt Busby took control over the club, he nick named club as the Busby Babes"

Busby, at that point, searched out another nickname for the club, and drew motivation from the English rugby side Salford that had visited France during the 1930s.

Their jersey comprised of a red shirt, with the French press marking them as "Les Diables Rouges" - which means "the Red Devils".

Busby preferred the nickname feeling that the implication to the devil rather than the more celestial "Angels".the name red devils has been used since then up to now.

The name was used more during the Alex ferguson era. Because it's this time that the club won many titles
