Bryan Robson OBE is an English football manager and a former player. He began his career with West Bromwich Albion in 1972 before moving to Manchester United in 1981 where he became the longest serving captain in the club's history.

Born in Chester-le-Street, Country, Robson began his playing career at West Bromwich Albion, before moving on to Manchester United, whom he captained to three FA Cups and a European Cup Winners Cup. He also won two FA Premiership winners medals.

Towards the end of his playing career he moved into management as player-manager with Middlesbrough. A well-rounded box to box midfileder, Robson had a good goal-scoring record; terrific anticipation, movement, timing on and off the ball; was quick; fiercely competitive and brave; possessed high levels of stamina; tackled, passed well and was also a good header of the ball.

He represented England on 90 occasions between 1980 and 1991, making him, at the time, the fifth most capped England player. His goalscoring tally of 26 placed him eighth on the list at the time. Robson captained his country 65 times, with only Bobby Moore and Billy Wright having captained England on more occasions. Robson is also known by the nicknames "Robbo" and "Captain Marvel".

 In August 2011, Robson was voted as the greatest ever Manchester United player from a poll of ex Manchester United players as part of a new book, 19, released to celebrate their 19th league title win.
