to Liverpool and for spending £2.3million on Gary Pallister but you don’t hear anyone complaining now." - Sir Bobby Charlton.
Just the stats The defender missed only one league game all season and appeared in 60 matches in total including a joint-high of nine starts in the Coca-Cola Cup run.
Trivia Pallister was rarely injured in 1993/94 but actually missed the infamous trip to the Ali Sami Yen Stadium, or 'Hell' as it was dubbed, and the stormy goalless draw with Galatasaray that eliminated United from Europe on the away goals rule.
What happened next? Still going strong in 1996, he helped the Reds land a second Double and did not leave the club until 1998 after nine years of fabulous service. With four Premier League title winners' medals and three FA Cup triumphs in total, his place in United's folklore was already secured when he returned to former club Middlesbrough for £2.5million, more than the British record fee paid for his services in 1989.
