My United XI: Nicky Butt

LM Ryan Giggs “One of the best players to grace the Premier League – and he keeps getting better.”

ST Eric Cantona “Legend. Everyone looked up to him, and he won us those early Premier League titles.”

ST Andy Cole “A proper out and out scorer, who did it for United over a number of years.”

The Team
“I’ve had to leave some top-class players on the sidelines, so this is a high-quality team. It has a rock-solid defence and midfield, with plenty of creativity and class going forward, then Eric and Coley to put it away up front.”

The Bench
"I was torn between Cole and Ruud van Nistelrooy up front, but Coley’s a mate and I’d never hear the end of it if I made him a sub, so Ruud’s on the bench. I’ve got to have super-sub Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on there, and Mark Hughes, too. My wildcard would be George Best because he was just an amazing talent, and I’d have some hard-working midfielders on the bench, so I’ll sit next to Bryan Robson and Paul Ince!"
