      Four years at the club . First season was his best he done a job for us no way a legend. I could pick 10 strikers in our history I’d have over him

      @John Doe I agree John there was very little loyalty shown to many players of that era . Roy Keane was in my opinion our greatest ever captain and the way he was treated in the end was disgusting. United demand loyalty from the players but it’s very much a business at their end when a player isn’t preforming to the standard it doesn’t matter what you have previously done ur gone

    This is a no Brainerd. Alot of many Manchester United Club legends will never be praised enough.

No player can ever be bigger than a Club especially not one as deeply rooted as ManchesterUnited FC. A club, a people and a culture built on the backs of millions and millions of people. GGMU
