Club career

Wes Brown began his serious football career as a schoolboy playing for the local Manchester and Greater Manchester youth sides, and was a former student of the FA School of Excellence as well as spending time at Manchester United's football Academy.

On May 4, 1998, Brown made his full first team Premiership debut against Leeds United, coming on as a substitute. His breakthrough would occur the next year, the 1998-99 season, where he made several first-team appearances at right-back as well as his more natural position of centre-back. He forged a promising defensive partnership with Jaap Stam at the heart of United's defence. The season could not have gone any better for Brown, as United captured the legendary treble. Tipped to be United's next big defender[citation needed], Brown suffered the first of what would be a string of injures while training for the 1999-00 campaign. His strong comeback the following year prompted praise from all corners, with club manager Sir Alex Ferguson making waves by proclaiming Wes to be Manchester United's most talented defender.[citation needed] is the 124th day of the year (125th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

A fine 2000-01 campaign was followed by another solid year in 2001-02. His reputation grew even greater during the 2002-03 season, but again, his performances were marred by injury. Brown tore a knee ligament on the final day of the season, and did not return until midway through the 2003-04 season. Brown finished the season in good form, notably giving an imperious, man-of-the-match performance in the FA Cup semi-final win over Arsenal. It was after this fine display that Ferguson re-iterated his belief that Brown is "the best natural defender" in England.[citation needed] Respected pundit Alan Hansen concurred, calling Brown "a class act".

On May 2, 2007, he was selected to start in the second leg of Manchester United's semifinal match against AC Milan. While attempting a clearance, Gabriel Heinze slipped on the grass and this defensive miscue proved costly, allowing AC Milan to score.
