A third Swede, winger Bojan Djordjic, made two senior appearances in 2001.


Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: 'The baby-faced Assassin' was one of the best bargain buys of all time. A snip at £1.5million from Molde after United missed out on signing Alan Shearer, the Norwegian became hugely popular in Manchester and, of course, his name is forever etched into the club's illustrious history after the dramatic winner against Bayern Munich in 1999.

Henning Berg: After shining at Blackburn, the versatile defender clinched a £5million switch to United. Although he only spent three full seasons at Old Trafford, he won two league titles and was part of the Treble-winning squad before returning to Ewood Park, initially on loan.

Ronny Johnsen: A reliable and under-rated figure who was equally at home in defence or midfield. An important player tactically for Europe, injuries hampered his progress as he suffered from a condition known as 'jumpers' knees'. Signed from Besiktas, he joined Aston Villa on a free transfer after leaving Old Trafford.
