Top 10 Best Manchester United Playersplmilligan1968 Who are the 10 best Manchester United Players of all time?
The Top Ten
I am putting Ronaldo at the top because of his all round ability and blistering pace, the same reason he is superior to Lionel Messi. No player has ever had the ball skills of CR7, and he creates goals for other players while still being able to score in open play with both feet and his head (has Messi got a head? ). And his free kicks defy description. let's not forget he's scored the hat fulls of goals he's gotten as a MIDFIELDER!
I'm a bit surprised that Cantona isn't on the list - he'd be in my top 5 along with Charlton, Robson, and Giggs. The best goalkeeper is Schmeichel, who just shades Van der Sar. I have to list them separately - it's too difficult to try and make comparisons between keepers and open field players.
I've been a United supporter since I was 13 (1966), so I can only judge players that I've seen on a regular basis since then. Do I hear a lot of wailing that Best isn't in my top 5? Yes - he was a great player, but he could be lazy and go missing for ...more
Arrogant, Greedy, Distasteful, Soft, and all-around one of the most hated players in the world but he's damn good. Most naturally gifted player United have ever had did well to move to Real Madrid before the loser Red Devils got destroyed this season. The 2nd best player in the world. Messi is the best in the world say what you will you're only deluding yourself in thinking CR7 is better.
He's great but Messi is something you see once in a lifetime. By the way those who keep saying George Best is the greatest ever, maybe in the 50s and 60s but come on the speed of the game during that era must have been atrociously slow, the speed of Brazil's 1970 team by comparison to the speed of the current national squads is like comparing a bicycle to a motorcycle. The game has evolved I am so bold as to say that if they cloned 1958 Pele in his prime and transported him with his skills and capped him with just those skills to the modern 2012 game he wouldn't be able to hang with the ...more
Messi shows his true face in Argentina
This is stupid! I don't understand why he is number 1? Where is Bobby Charlton or Ryan giggs,paul scholes,wayne Rooney,george best? I understand that Ronaldo is an exceptionally great and one of the most gifted football players on planet earth. But we are on the " top ten best Man United players ".Yes, Ronaldo has played for united and he has one titles there and he did made his name there but there are many more players that have done that for example, Paul scholes who has played every single match in his premier league career in united and helped them win the champions league in 1999 or Ryan giggs who has also played for united his entire career and how about sir Bobby damn Charlton, he has been considered England's best ever player has scored the most goals for united. Wayne Rooney is another example, this guy broke Bobby Charlton's record which was held for god knows how long and has helped united win titles way before Ronaldo came. I see the comments here are about how great ...moreV 198 Comments
Giggs has been able to influence every game that he has played since he started playing for Manchester United in 1992 at the age of fourteen. He controls the midfield and rips defenses apart with his passes and runs. Giggs has won a total of 13 Premier League titles under Sir Alex Ferguson. This man is a true legend.
Gigs is winning his 12th silver ware in the Premier league, under one Manager and a club. He is a true complete legend No1.
You can't tell when he is on form or out Form, MAN you still need him. Come next season he will play the same football.
who has made a longer more valuable contribution to a team not crashed his car and set a better example to you or your children as to how conduct ones self? if you can name him then he's a better man than giggsy
What in the name of sanity are Ryan Giggs, Sir Bobby Charlton, Roy Keane, George Best, King Cantona, Dennis Law and Peter Shmeichel doing behind Ronaldo in this list... They can kick his a** any time - kratos92V 46 Comments
His name is Wayne
Runs as fast as train
His name is Wayne
Never leaves red army in pain
His name is Wayne
Making his enemies lame!
A great player who utd have still got great things to expect from. From the age of 16 he has shown the world that he is a world class footballer. He is the complete player, he can pass, shoot, head, he's quick and strong and can play in midfield as well (centre or wing). Still got so many records to beat.
Wazza is my best player that I have ever seen in my life
Rooney is an unpredicted player rooney scores goals without pity. rooney have disgraced a lot of players in the world today, rooney is truly a world class playerV 116 Comments
Short memories or not old enough if you rate giggs above Charlton
Charlton being 8th just shows how inaccurate these lists are come on he's the all time leading goal scorer for club and country, as well as the most appearances how can rooney or keane be placed higher its just wrong there great players but there not on the level charlton was. Charlton was one of a handful of englishmen to lift the world cup I'm sorry but this guy should be top 5 of all time not 8th in manchester uniteds list, he's a real LEGEND respected by every fellow professional
Charlton has to be the greatest Manchester United player of all time. Most goals ever scored by a united player, and was crucial in seeling United as a superpower in the 60's. Was a perfect attacking midfield, that was strong, could dribble and a powerful finishing ability. By far the best.
Number 2 who could actually be number 1. What can you say about him that hasn't been said already? Quite possibly the most complete footballer the world has ever seen. You can't have a Man United mount Rushmore without Sir Bobby Charlton on it front and center. He is Man United.V 14 Comments
Poetry in motion
Most natural player I ever saw.pure genius.
Any one that understands football know he was one of the greatest players ever. Ronaldo is closing fast and will possibly overtake him though, but not yet. I haven't seen the full list yet but young Duncan Edwards must be close?
Best player the game has ever seen. Had NI made the world cup just once while he played, his name would always be mentioned before Maradona and Pele.V 51 Comments
The great player at united ever seen. There is only one king rule English premier league. ERIC 'king' CANTONA.
Cantona is top 5 for me. His quality was out of this world. His work ethic and determination were unmatched. The sheer grit made him a United legend, but his skill and performances solidified that.
Eric Cantona helped United win several trophies a United fan's favourite player and worked hard day in day out
Cantona you are an amazing footballer the best of all time you kicked a lot of people and now in 2016 I watch videos laughing about you kicking them.V 26 Comments
Remeber that day man utd were against brace and he score a volley
Much better than Lampard,gerrard and beckham put together.Anybody picking an England team with those three in it,and scholes left out,needs sectioning.
Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs have made their marks in Manchester United history. It's a shame to see Scholes relatively low on this list, considering all he's done for the club, which is the only reason I'm picking him over Giggsy or Cantona. His rockets for shots, pin-point pass and eye for chance creation makes him one of a kind.
He's won the hearts of millions of fans and neumerous of the games greatest players and managers. Sir Alex, Beckham, Pele, Zidane, Guardiola, Messi and Ronaldinho are but a few names of icons to have payed their tributes to this great veteran.
He deserves to be in the to 5 without a doubt, and he would be if not for all the fake fans, or young kids who have never seen him in his prime. How Bobby Charlton, Denis Law and Bryan Robson ended up below Antonio Valencia I do not know!
ALL OF THE SPECIALLY BEST RONALDO GIGGS SCMICHEL CANTONA AND... BUT I LIKE PAUL THE MOST CAUSE I LIKE HIS PASSES.V 16 Comments
HE IS A KING HE SHOULD BE HIGHER ON THE LIST
Not even a missile could get past him! if messi faced shmeichel today, he would look as an amateur striker! Simply the best keeper ever!
way better than any player in the world a goalie that scored from play
The best goalkeeper in history, and along with van der Saar the standard by which every other Manchester United goalie will be measured. - dinofsV 13 Comments
Bend it like beckham
Beckham is the famest player in football�'s history, he is the best free-kick taker in the history, the best corner-taker in history, what more do you want?
Becks is by far the best player ever to play for Man Utd. Just remember his long-distance shot, his passing, his crossing and his free kicks and VOTE!V 48 Comments
RvP, The Flying Dutchmen, he is an exceptional player and quite frankly one of most entertaining to watch, so glad we snagged him from Arsenal!
VAN PERSIE! SCORED 30 GOALS ALREADY!
Van persie and Van Nistelrooy are the greatest strikers that have ever played for man utd!V 36 Comments
Best finisher of the game. Fans still missing his magic touch in the box. No arrogance but still the best.
Ruudy has the best Man Utd. goal Ratio ever!
Ruud the goal scorer expert who has really helped Manchester United and his very great in foo
Absolute world beater with United. He would lead my line in an all time United 11.V 7 Comments
Nemanja vidic is great he can stop the greatest of players although he isn't as good as he used to be
The best player ever!
He put his head everywhere...He have a big heart and Nemanja is the best diffender in the world
Not as good as Peter Schmeichel but still pretty good. 😝 - sebastianEV 1 Comment
Most have him in the top 10 and rightfully so. He was one hell of a leader and really had the ability to control any match. He was hard nosed and worked his tail off every match. He had a fear factor about him. Other clubs were always aware of where Roy was on the pitch. Brilliant player and as tough as they come.
The most successful captain and midfielder of recent years. He mirrored the style of Bryan Robson. A true leader of men who suffered no fools! - plmilligan1968
Leader of men who forced the best out of the players around him. Even if Keane wasn't having the best match he demanded the best of everyone else and pushed them to their limits.
Powerhouse midfielder who would've been welcomed into any team with open arms. Could've played in any position. World class!V 9 Comments
Should be first
I think he is the best goalkeeper and favorite player
The best of all timeV 34 Comments
European footballer of the year 1964 was called The King. If you had to pick a player to score a goal to save your life, it would be Denis Law.
14? It's hard not to put him in the top 5 let alone the top 10. He was the goal machine of his time. He was such a pure finisher.
The original goal machine. - plmilligan1968
The best ever united player above them all in every way goals per gameV 2 Comments
Zlatan don't need to score, the ball score itself.
Zlatan don't needs oxygen, oxygen need Zlatan.
Zlatan teach a kid how to run, now that kid name is Usain Bolt.
Zlatan don't need football, football need him.
Zlatan isn't God, God is Zlatan.
Zlatan was believe a guy in the past was nice, now that kid name is Jesus
He is AMAZING!
Zlatan is my favorite player in the world. He has probably the best goal ever scored with that bicycle kick.
He is the best he should be in top 10 the king of kicksV 9 Comments
He is from Norway
He has won it!
Best player everV 5 Comments
He set a record in Manchester United and will remain in the Manchester's history. A true Guru
He remained excellent throughout his whole career.
Probably one of the greatest goal keepers of all time
He is one of the best goalkeepers for man united. He should be close to the top.V 4 Comments
Greatest player the world hardly saw. Awesome skills and England international. Much better than Best or Cantona if he had lived.
A powerhouse who could really play in any position. His career was tragically cut short after dying from his injuries sustained in the Munich Air Crash. Duncan is a legend at Utd. - plmilligan1968
Anybody who has any knowledge of football history or of a certain age will know and say this guy was the most talented footballer to ever grace old trafford, and if he had lived the possibly the greatest the world would ever seen
The greatest united player ever. RIPV 4 Comments
Best defender in the whole of the man utd team
One of the best defenders to have played at the club, him & Vidic had an amazing partnership.
Can't defend. Really really overrated!
Every time that he is on the pitch, does a great job, fast, strong and smart...
Fastest player in the world in 2013 (source: FIFA study). Google it.
His a great player
Some right back. Gets a lot of assistsV 5 Comments
The best performed midfielder of utd of all time carrick steal aback born for utd since his career as utd player we remember him forever for his contribution in 2008 uefa champions cup. live long carrick

Make clumsy mistakes
What? Di maria is a fine player, but his year at old Trafford was a waste for everyone including him.

He s good cs he can score, he needs more playing time
He a really good player
Best of the bestV 10 Comments
He is amazing
Paul Pogba started out his professional career with Manchester United. After a year there he was then transferred to Juventus where he played with some of the best center midfielders of all time and is now arguably the best center mid in the world. He is now back at Manchester United after a record breaking 110 million euro transfer and will continue to be one of the best in the game.
Top class **

HE IS A BEAST WITH THE GOALS HE SCORES ARE AMAZINGV 5 Comments
What a player, not many people remember when Man Utd where rubbish but this man was different class. Watch Man U during 80’s robson world class no wonder Juventus wanted to sign him
Dragged Utd through many games. The only player from the eighties who would be considered for this list - that in itself said it all. The rest on this list had top quality players around them, Robbo was peerless for both utd and England in the eighties.
Come on people is this list for real? Captain Marvel below Nani, Valencia to name a couple. The man bleeds utd! To get a recall for England 3 years after being written off in early 90's!
Bryan would die for the cause and injured himself so many times. A leader and captain who lead by example. - plmilligan1968V 1 Comment
The best full back ever
Best definitely in history
Shinji Kagawa is a great player he could be one of united hero he have a good ability and never lose the boll before I really like him and I know he could be more up one of the best player in the world. THERE IS ONLY ONE UNITED!
Outclasses park ji sung
He is the same player as hernandez.
I like man U
Scores bangers can't stop him
He has a great future.
Lingered is the best player ever I never seen how great he is.
Nobody does it better than this guyV 1 Comment
The original play master, a wizard on the pitch and helped create the legend of Utd. - plmilligan1968
The little mouse
Fabulous player, even better person. Mixes excellent technique with brilliant vision and deadly finishing. Big game player.
IS A GOOD PLAYMAKER
Good and exellent goals you scored
Very good player
Waste of money
I'm surprised Dwight Yorke and indeed Andy "King" Cole do not feature. I'm sure at one point they scored more goals than any strike partnership in Europe as well as helping Man U make history. its goals that win games and if you have a prolific striker season in season out, hoy stand a chance. History will eventually correct these inaccuracies
This samba kid is just great on that defensive wall
He was one of the best defenders in the team
He is the best
He was on the divils?
I think he is the best player that ever played. Screw Ramos, Thiago Silva and puyol, If your making a team you gotta have Phil Jones. He the best.
Myself- PHIL Jones the worst player in the Vietnamese league
Absolutely amazing scouted for real should win ballon d'ore this year screw salah and any other world class player. Phil Jones inst world class he inst a ordianry player he is a god and should have an icon card when he retires
Because he is 1 of the best players to join the bclub in the 90's
Who is this
Like his speed and composure when in form and in sight of goal
Best nineteen year old I ever saw
The next No. 7!
