Manchester United boss David Moyes has responded personally to a letter sent by a North West MP urging him to help start a women's team at the club.
He starts the letter to MP for Worsley and Eccles South Barbara Keeley by stating he was not at the club when it disbanded it's women's side in 2005.
Manchester United is the only Premier League club without a women's team of any description after its previous side was scrapped back in 2005.
But a petition calling for change has attracted over 3,300 signatures.
