Sergio Romero – The best backup goalkeeper in the world starts us off. With his Europa winning run in the 17-18 season and reliability, Romero has won a place in the hearts of fans.

Rafael – It’s hard to think of many with the passion he showed for the badge than Rafael. One of the most beloved players in recent times, Rafael embraced the club and the fans embraced him too.

John O’shea – O’shea played for united when we had the likes of Rio and Vidic at the back and still managed to shine out. Apart from his commitment to give 100 percent on the pitch, his superb versatility made him a great asset.

Wesley Brown – Brown was another player who played the majority of his career in a golden period for United. His ability to play anywhere along the defensive line helped him gain the affection of the fans.

Denis Irwin – Possibly the most talented from this group, Irwin was a great part at United through one of our most successful times. In addition to being a solid rock at left back for over a decade, his commendable leadership made him a true fan favourite.

Darren Fletcher – Criminally underrated, Fletcher was the dependable asset that allowed United to have a bolstering attack up top. His consistent and immense contribution is very much appreciated by the fans even to this day.

Michael Carrick – Probably the ideal partner to Fletcher, Carrick was initially doubted by many. But with time, we witnessed and grew to admire his stability and calmness.

Park Ji Sung – The man with 3 lungs is probably the one player that would be in any fan’s list of cult heroes. Park gave everything he had out on the pitch and for that will always be fondly remembered.

Nani – Nani is one of the most skillful players I’ve seen play for us. Along with those cheeky skills against Arsenal, fans will forever remember the 40 yard screamers and extravagant celebrations.

Javier Hernandez – always known as a poacher off the bench, Chicharito was a weapon in front of goal. Till this day, he is loved by the fans for how consistently he found the back of the net at times we needed most.

Ole Gunnar Solkjaer – Speaking of the bench, the best supersub the world has ever seen and the man currently at the wheel of Manchester United. Solkjaer is up there as the most loved players to play for us.
