Wesley Michael "Wes" Brown (born 13 October 1979) is an English football player who plays as a defender for Manchester United. He regularly plays in the right-back and centre-back positions.
Having joined the youth team in 1996, Brown has spent his entire career at Manchester United. He made his senior debut in 1998 and became a regular first team player in the 1998–1999 season, in which he was part of the club's Treble winning team. After a year-long hiatus due to injury, Brown became a regular fixture in the first team from 2000 onwards. Over the next eight years he won numerous honours, including four more Premier League titles, an FA Cup, a League Cup, and another Champions League. Manager Alex Ferguson has stated that Brown is "without question the best natural defender this club has had for years".
Brown earned his first England cap in 1999 and was selected to play at the 2002 World Cup. He played in the 2008 European Championships qualifiers but England failed to progress to the final tournament. He scored his first international goal in 2008 against the Czech Republic. Brown announced his retirement from international football on 8 August 2010, just a day after being recalled to the England squad by Fabio Capello.
Brown is married to Leanne Wassell, with whom he lives in Alderley Edge, Cheshire, with their two daughters, Halle and Lilia. His father, Bancroft Brown, died in February 2008. His half-sister, Claire Fallows, died on 19 July 2008 during pregnancy. Brown's younger brother, Reece, who has been at the Manchester United Academy since the age of 9, also plays at centre-back and is an England U19 international.
