Manager fra 1945 i Manchester Utd. 1969 blev han direktør i klubben. 1980 Klubpræsident til sin død (20.01.94). Hans største resultater kom med "Busby Babes" i midt 50erne og et nyt stort klubhold i slutningen af 60erne. Han overlevede et flystyrt i februar 1958 udenfor München, i hvilket hans første storhold blev ødelagt. Hans betydning for Manchester United kan ikke overdrives. Hans evne til at se talenter, kultivere dem og implementere dem var helt enestående. De 2 største talenter nogensinde i britisk fodbold, englænderen Duncan Edwards og nordireren George Best blev opfundet og formet af Busby. Må vurderes som en af Storbritanniens største managers gennem tiderne, i hvert fald den mest legendariske.
