Subject: Manchester United owner Malcolm Glazer dies at the age of 85

Written By: Philip Eno on 05/28/14 at 3:59 pm

Malcolm Glazer, the self-made billionaire who owned Manchester United and the NFL’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers, has died at the age of 85.

The reclusive Palm Beach businessman had been in failing health since April 2006 when a pair of strokes left him with impaired speech and limited mobility in his right arm and leg.

His unobtrusive management style helped transform the Bucs from a laughing stock into a model franchise that in 2003 won the Super Bowl 48-21 over the Oakland Raiders.

He raised his profile with a 1.47 billion US dollar takeover of Manchester United which was bitterly opposed by fans of one of the world’s richest soccer clubs in 2005.
