As a class of '92 graduate, Nicky Butt played with some living legends in his Old Trafford playing days – giving him plenty of scope for an impressive dream team.
Our My United XI rules require legends to pick 11 starters and five subs, all players they played with except one wildcard entry from any era.
GK Peter Schmeichel “He was so hard to score against and such a massive character.”
RB Gary Neville “Gary was Mr Consistency throughout his United career. He rarely played badly.”
CB Jaap Stam “An awesome defender with great recovery pace, strength and physique.”
CB Rio Ferdinand “Rio is simply the best footballing centre-back I have ever seen.”
LB Denis Irwin “Ultra-reliable, like Gary, plus he could produce the goods from free kicks.”
RM David Beckham “His final pass and delivery were brilliant, and he had a first-class work ethic.”
CM Roy Keane “Great leader and a massive presence, but his football talent was underrated.”
CM Paul Scholes “A phenomenal player with an incredible footballing brain. Such a goal threat, too.”
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.”
