Given the lean seasons that Manchester United have experienced recently, supporters of the club would have been content with any piece of silverware from the 2022/23 season.
But it’s mid-February and the Red Devils are incredibly in the running to win all four competitions, with new manager Erik ten Hag eyeing what would be a historic quadruple. No team in England has managed to win all three major domestic trophies, plus a European trophy.
Rivals Manchester City did their own quadruple in 2018/19, but that consisted of four domestic trophies, including the Community Shield. Outside of England, German side Bayern Munich won four trophies in 2012/13, including the Champions League and the one-off DFL-Supercup (the equivalent of the Community Shield).
Manchester United secured a famous treble in 1998/99 by winning the UEFA Champions League, the Premier League, and the FA Cup, but they were knocked out in the League Cup quarterfinals by Tottenham.
Looking back over half a century, Celtic’s famous Lisbon Lions (1966/67) bagged themselves five trophies in one season, including the European Cup (vs. Inter Milan), plus the Scottish league title, the Scottish Cup, the Scottish League Cup and the local Glasgow Cup.
The Red Devils have already clinched the Carabao Cup, defeating Newcastle United in the Wembley showpiece with a 2-0 victory.
