The Official Manchester United Podcast / Jim Ryan - The Busby Babe who found Paul Pogba

Listen on

Episode notes

This week's episode comes from a man with an incredible amount of years under his belt at Manchester United; Jim Ryan.

Jim told the guys about his time playing at Old Trafford under Sir Matt Busby, having once been tricked into asking the legendary manager for a pay rise!

We then heard how he came to return to Man Utd under Sir Alex Ferguson, overseeing David Beckham, Paul Scholes and their Class of '92 teammates' rise to the First Team.

Not only that, but Jim was responsible for scouting dozens of top name players that ended up at the club, including Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Paul Pogba, and the few that got away, such as Zinedine Zidane.

As always, the guys read out some of your e-mails at the end of the episode. Thank you to everyone who takes the time to get in touch.
