Steve Coppell was one of the most talented wide players in the 1970s and early 1980s until his playing career was cruelly cut short by a knee injury.

He joined Manchester United in February 1975 and helped their push for promotion to the then First Division. His career at Old Trafford saw him win the FA Cup in 1977, when United beat Liverpool. He also represented United in two other FA Cup finals in the '70s, playing against Southampton in 1976 and Arsenal in 1979. Steve scored 54 goals in 322 appearances for United and during his career at Old Trafford, he made 42 appearances for the full England team.

After injury cut his playing career short, Steve moved into management with Crystal Palace, and guided the Eagles back to the top flight in 1989 after the South London club had dropped into the second tier under Alan Mullery.


Coppell also led Palace to an FA cup final appearance in 1990, against the club he represented three times in the most prestigious fixture in English football. Having beaten Liverpool 4-3 in a classic semi-final, Palace took Manchester United to a reply, where they lost 1-0.

Coppell went onto manage at the highest level in a career that has spanned almost 30 years. Coppell is currently a Director at Crawley Town.
