Team of '94: Paul Parker

What others said "It's disappointing he's not in the England side because he's the best right-back in the Premier League and he has done a really steady job for United. He's someone you can rely on." – Paul Ince.

Just the stats The defender appeared 40 times in the Premier League, once as a substitute, and played 56 times in total. Six starts came in the Coca-Cola Cup, seven in the FA Cup and another three in the European Cup.

Trivia Gary Neville was handed Parker's place for the final league game of the season, a goalless draw with Coventry City. It was a Premier League debut for the youngster with striker Colin McKee also making his bow as the manager shuffled his squad but Parker did get off the bench when Steve Bruce was injured after 56 minutes.

What happened next? Parker faced a battle for his place from the emerging Neville and feels his ankle problem ultimately cut short his top-level career. The England international joined Derby County in 1996 but played only another 21 league games before being forced to retire.
