Opinion: Top 10 Manchester United Best Captains Of All Time

Manchester United have a fantastic captain but the captains have not been very successful in recent years. Harry Maguire was named club captain following in the footsteps of Roy Keane, Gary Neville and others. With the exception of current captain Harry Maguer, the eight Manchester United captains of the Premier League era have shown remarkable resilience. But he is still one of the best captains in Manchester United.

 10. Ashley Young

 Young's rise to the captaincy in a weak 2018/19 season has angered United fans. Schalke was booed in the pre-season before announcing he was the club's new boss. So the full-back was an unpopular choice for the arm band and his decision to join Inter Milan in January 2020 shows that it was never good.

 9. Harry Maguire

 The current captain took over the reins at Leicester City a few months after his move to Leicester City. "He came and established himself as a leader in the team," the manager said at the time. It is too early to judge Maguer as United captain but he has done enough to beat Valencia, Young and Carrick.

 8. Antonio Valencia

 Antonio Valencia has been with United for ten years and was a key player during that time. Even in the final stages of his career, when he was vice-captain and often wore a wristband, he made a huge contribution. But the only season in which the Ecuadorian really became a club captain was the worst. He didn't play much with injuries and fitness, and he didn't look like a leader, especially off the field, because he was a role model rather than a regular speaker.

 7. Wayne Rooney

 "He's a great role model for the young members of the club, and I know he will put his heart and soul into his role as captain," said Van Van Gaal after being named captain in 2014. A.D.

 6. Eric Cantona

 Although Cantona was not always a role model, he was a leader at Old Trafford who encouraged and encouraged his players. In Canton, Bruce moved to Birmingham City in 1996, where he was arrested and became the first United Captain outside of the United Kingdom or Ireland. A.D. He led his side to their fourth Premier League victory in 1996-97, scoring 15 goals at the end of the season.

 5. Nemanja Vedic

 Nemanja Vidich, widely known as one of the center-backs in Premier League history, was a 'red devil' in his heart. For Manchester United, the famous Serbian was the backbone, unprofessional and sometimes inappropriate. At the time, Vedic was one of the most influential defensive allies of Rio Ferdinand. The Serbian's dominance in the United States' defense was a nightmare for the opposition. Following the departure of Gary Neville from the club in 2011, Nemanja Vidich took over as captain. In three seasons, the great center-back has led the Red Devils to two Premier League titles.

 4. Steve Bruce

 Bruce was a good air threat, a great tactician, and perhaps the most famous United center-back, Dolly and Daisy half, along with Gary Polster. A.D. He captained Bruce from Robson in 1993-1994 and 1995-1996, leading the team to a historic "double" of the Premier League and FA Cup. Bruce's last two goals in 1992-93 at Sheffield Wednesday helped United win their first league title in 26 years. Bruce also won the European Championship (1991) and the League Cup (1992). (1992) During Bruce's coaching career, United They took the first step in controlling the English game in the 1990s. In his first autobiography, Managing My Life, Ferguson, surprisingly, was highly regarded by Bruce.

 3. Brian Robson

 Although other Manchester United captains have won many trophies, Robson is the most famous. Ron Atkinson In 1993 and 1994, Robson 'Old Trafford won the Premier League, but in the 1980s United failed to win.

 2. Gary Neville.

 Gary Neville, like Paul Scholes, was a 'club man'. He was one of the '92 football players. Famous defender Sir Alex Ferguson grew up playing for two decades. It is currently ranked fifth in the list of all-time Manchester United games (602). Gary Neville has undoubtedly played a key role in United's success in the Premier League. For years, he has been a regular contributor to the right line of defense. During his six years as captain, he took the team to new heights, replacing the famous right-back Roy Keane. Gary Neville has won two Premier League titles and one Champions League trophy during his time at Manchester United.

 1. Roy Kin

 No wonder Roy Keane is number one. The famous midfielder on the field was a fighter who had to be the real leader. Despite the challenges, he was strong, resilient, and passionate about praising Ferguson Kin as a great leader. Kein was not only a great character but also a great actor. In midfield, the Irishman was a complete package and gradually established himself as one of the best in the Premier League. With his creative abilities, he can launch attacks or stop opponents in their tracks. Kin was able to complete any task assigned to him by his teammates.
