English giants, Manchester United have been criticised for not having a women's team.

United's Premier League rivals Manchester City, Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal are represented in the Women's Super League while the 20 times English champions disbanded their women's team in 2005.

Sports Minister Tracey Crouch came for the club saying that it is time they rectify the situation.

"It is incredibly disappointing that one of the biggest clubs in the world doesn't have a ladies' football team," Crouch told BBC.

"They have an excellent centre for girls but they don't translate that into a ladies' football team.

"At a time when there is phenomenal interest in women's football, it is right that they should try and rectify that as soon as possible."

The WSL have the likes of current BBC Footballer of the year, Asisat Oshoala who plays for Liverpool Ladies.
