In March 1941, the stadium which had so much time and effort put into, was ruined during the Second World War as German planes, who were dropping bombs on Manchester, intending to hit the dock lands close to Old Trafford but ended up hitting a special part of Manchester. The stadium was in complete ruins almost most notably the main South stand which took the brunt of the damage. The tunnel however stood tall and proud which amazed everybody involved. United were given money to clear up the mess and rebuild the stadium but because the area was under construction, it meant that Manchester United wouldn’t be able to play a game in their real home for almost 10 years. During this time, the club was relocated to cross-town rivals Manchester City at Maine Road. As work went on at Old Trafford, they constructed the stadium almost to the exact details of the previous stadium.
