Manchester City Council agrees to parade through city
Players felt it was wrong not to have one after Moscow

Manchester United will get a victory parade this year if they beat Barcelona in the Champions League final on 27 May. Controversially there was no parade last season after the team's victory against Chelsea with neither the club nor Manchester City Council willing to take responsibility for the decision, which even the United players felt was wrong.

However, following discussions between the club, the council and Trafford Metropolitan Borough Council, it has now been confirmed that, if United are successful in Rome, they will have a parade, starting in Manchester city centre in the late afternoon after their return from Italy on May 28, ending up at Old Trafford.

"First of all, congratulations to the team for reaching the final, which is an incredible achievement in itself," said Councillor Mike Amesbury, executive member for Culture and Leisure at Manchester City Council. "We would be delighted to see the team now go on and win the Champions League and celebrate in the appropriate way with a parade through the city."
