Manchester United consider starting new team

Manchester United have confirmed they are considering introducing their own women's team, just one day after bitter rivals Liverpool claimed the WSL title for the first time.

Liverpool broke the monopoly of Arsenal, who had won the women's top-flight for eight consecutive seasons, with a title-deciding 2-1 triumph over Bristol Academy at Halton Stadium on the final day of the campaign.

Having witnessed Liverpool claim victory in dramatic circumstances, Manchester United are mulling over whether or not to create a team of their own to challenge the Anfield club in the women's game.

A Manchester United spokesperson told The Guardian: "These matters are looked at from time to time and the club is reviewing this again.

"Once that review has been completed, the club will evaluate the findings and make a decision."

Manchester United discarded their previous women's team in 2005, and are the most notable absentee from the game of England's most prominent clubs.

Along with Liverpool and Arsenal, Manchester City and Everton also have teams in the WSL, which was created two years ago to replace the Women's Premier League.

Victory for Liverpool, meanwhile, represented their first major trophy in women's football.
