Manchester United posted a poll on the club’s official website, with fans around the world piling in to have their say on their all-time greatest XI. One may claim some talents to be missing out, but their squad looks tough. All in all here is Manchester United fan’s all-time greatest XI.
11. Goalkeeper – David de Gea
Despite Peter Schmeichel going down as one of the best goalkeepers to have ever graced English football, United fans have opted for David de Gea. The Spanish shot-stopper is undoubtedly the world’s best today.
10. Right-Back: Gary Neville
The class of 92 Gary Neville was fans’ favorite on the right-back. Neville spent his entire playing career at Old Trafford, making him a one-club man. He won a total of 20 trophies, including eight Premier League titles and two Champions League titles.
9. Center-Back: Rio Ferdinand
Being a member of three FIFA World Cup squads is not something to be taken for granted. Rio Ferdinand United’s impenetrable wall in the years 2003 to 2012. Rio is one of England’s greatest ever players, one of the most decorated English footballers of all time.
8. Center-Back: Nemanja Vidic
Nemanja Vidic joined Manchester United for a £7 million transfer in 2006. He brought his defensive consistency and awareness, as well as his strength, leadership, and ability in the air. This earned him a reputation as one of the world’s best center-backs.
7. Left-Back: Patrice Evra
As expected, no defender has ever protected the Red Devils’ left side better than Patrice Evra. One may think that the French star is a flop due to his poor performance in West Ham United, but that’s just an old Evra. At his prime, he was a pure beast, hard to kill.
