The Manchester United Tough Guy
Manchester born Remi Moses started as an apprentice with West Bromwich where he would become part of the club´s revival under Ron Atkinson. Although Albion didn’t lift any silverware during his regime, they certainly played some positive football and featured players such as Peter Barnes, Laurie Cunningham and Bryan Robson.
When Ron Atkinson finally left West Bromwich Albion for Manchester United during the summer of 1981, he soon recruited Bryan Robson and Remi Moses from his previous employers. After having played 63 league games for West Bromwich between 1978 and 1981, he was transferred to Manchester United for £500,000 at the start of the 1982–83 season. A defensive minded midfield player, he would make his first league appearance for his new club coming on as a substitute in a narrow 1–0 victory against newly promoted Swansea City at Old Trafford in September 1981. The Mancunian emerged as one the key players at Manchester United during the mid-nineteen-eighties and the popular performer made nearly 200 appearances during seven memorable years at the club. Despite his tough guy image, Moses was an exceptional passer of the ball and the local born player had a illustrious career with Manchester United before he was tragically forced out of the game due to a recurring ankle injury in 1988. Being a socially conscious person, Remi Moses now works as a soccer coach for the Unity in the Community Project.
