Managerial career

He continued to be involved at United and was promoted from reserve team coach to first team coach when Matt Busby retired in 1969. Appointed as Busby's successor in April 1969 at the age of 31 he endured a dismal spell. At a time when the Manchester United side was in transition Busby had moved to General Manager. But McGuinness's reign as Manchester United manager was not successful, and he was sacked in December 1970, one week after a dramatic comeback which saw United draw 4-4 with Derby County in a league fixture [1] at the Baseball Ground. He returned to his old job as reserve team coach before leaving the club at the end of the season. Also: 1969 (number) 1969 (movie) 1969 (Stargate SG-1) episode. ...

Wilf McGuinness The Busby Babes and Munich :: Soccerphile
McGuinness managed to miss the fateful trip to face Red Star Belgrade in the European Cup with the luckiest cartilage injury of his life, and is still the only man ever to have managed and played for Manchester United.
For Wilf shared more than his adolescence with the playing casualties of Munich, and cherishes to this day the chance he had to get to know Duncan Edwards better when they shared a hotel room on a scouting trip with Jimmy Murphy to Bray in Wicklow, Ireland.
