Top 10 Best Manchester United PlayersWho 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
Cristiano ronaldo is not only the best ever united player but the all time goat
I've seen all these guys over the years and Ronnie is just on a different planet. Before Ronaldo Best and Cantona were No. 1 but not now. CR7 will be back one day he is a true red legend. The worst of it is he is getting better so Real could end up getting his best years. And YES he is better than messi who has the whole spanish team (world champs) supplying him every week
Yes Ronaldo (Cristiano) is a talented footballer... But did you know who he was before he came to united? In the current era of talent, they are bound and attracted to big paychecks and flashy lifestyles... For me Uniteds greatest and most well decorated british grown player, to have scored in every season and deserves his place amongst the B O B is Ryan Joseph Wilson, foundly known as Giggsy to red devil faithfuls... This man epitomises the true example of what a footballer should be...
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.
Giggs is beyond comparison whether he is ranked # 1 in the list or not. His dedication to ManU is unparalleled. He is the best example for people switching their careers whether be it sports or jobs.
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.
As with Ronaldo he's a bit high on this list. His goal scoring is the stuff of legend as is his United career. I actually have Rooney at 5 and Ronaldo at 8. Of course, Ronaldo could have went on to be much higher. Rooney's red devil record make him worthy of a top 5.
Rooney! Rooney! The one who has un beaten by messi and cr7 the white pele will again be alive for Red Devils and would make them win each and every street. A CHEER FOR white pele or bickyler or wayne mark rooney go rooney go and make Manu again be alive, go.
Excuse me, but Wayne Rooney should not be at number 3 like it was when I read it. Rooney is such a gifted and talented player, he is a fair man, why on earth shouldn't he be at number 1? Come on guys get football wise! - Duh Kritik
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.
He just has to, just has to be number one. Why is he not number one I just don't get it he is the best player ever! He's the best you can't leave him out of the the top 5!
Number 1 for me. I love Charlton and Rooney and all those goals, but this guy has a very impressive record for not being an out n out number 9. George Best is what United is all about. Brilliant this guy and will remain in song and lore forever. His skill and the numbers he put up at his position make him my number 1.
Best was the best without a doubt. Rooney not even in the race. Giggs good but not great and Ronaldo, well he is a contender but he will never outshine George Best.
When it comes to the greatest of all time there is only one name. George you were the greatest then, the greatest now and the greatest for all time!
The fact that George Best isn't number one shows how little people nowadays respect history, only when it comes to how many cups/leagues they've won. The majority of utd fans probably couldn't name me 5 people who died in munich, or maybe even 15 players from 1999 treble
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?
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.
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.
The great player at united ever seen. There is only one king rule English premier league. ERIC 'king' CANTONA.
It's a real Gladiator of the modern times. There will stay a King of the show still unrivaled.
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!
I wanna see those idiots who voted the ginger prince lower than the rest above him. It's not who's your favorite MUFC player, its who's the best. Nothing beats Scholesy.
"I’m not the best, Paul Scholes is."
"My toughest opponent? Scholes of Manchester. He is the complete midfielder. Scholes is undoubtedly the greatest midfielder of his generation."
“I want to pass like him. Who taught him how to do that? ”
“The player in the Premiership I admire most? Easy... Scholes”
And that's coming from a person who hated anything Manchester United. That's what scholes is.
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.
Only 2/3 players in the history of football have been able to pass a ball and control a football game like scholes could. (Xavi, Pirlo)
Nobody could or never will be able to keep as well as this guy. Some people want to be keepers so they buy loads of books and DVDs to try to work it out, but Shmeichel is just a born shot-stopper
The best goalkeeper in history, and along with van der Saar the standard by which every other Manchester United goalie will be measured.
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!
He has been amazing for many teams like man you and Denmark by far the best keeper ever
Beckham is a bit high here but I've seen him way too low on most lists. If he'd have stuck around a few more years without doubt he would be at least here. But he's at 10 or just outside the top 10 for me. But my word was he a naturally gifted player..
Ronaldo sold out, becks was sold out, case of the boss putting his personal feelings above the club, becks would of served utd with glee till until retiring if it wasnt for fergies bad temper in my humble opinion.
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!
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?
RVP is a fantastic player. They way he scores, his ability to run past dreaded defenders and the way he has been creating crosses. The stuff was all there when he was in Arsenal too. But Manchester gave him much more leeway for his talent to be displayed. A player with great class. Hope this season United gain their former glory!
What? He only played what 3 full seasons? An outstanding scoring record, but wasn't around long enough to be this high. He isn't even the greatest Dutch forward United had. Fantastic few seasons though.
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!
He will return from injury and play like a star on saturday the 7th december 2013 against newcastle.
Best finisher of the game. Fans still missing his magic touch in the box. No arrogance but still the best.
He is a very great footballer and one of the best actually and I really miss him. I don't have much to say,but his the best footballer I have ever seen
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.
He put his head everywhere...He have a big heart and Nemanja is the best diffender in the world
The best player ever!
Not as good as Peter Schmeichel but still pretty good. 😝
Nemanja vidic is great he can stop the greatest of players although he isn't as good as he used to be
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.
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.
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!
Roy Keane is the captain's captain of Manchester United. He was the powersteerin engine behind man utd's success. just ask alfe halland. He just said it, as he seen it & spoke his mind. God bless Roy Keane. 16 LEGEND.
Dude this guy should be in second. He's so amazing the way he jumps the way he just looks at the ball and then just punches it its amazing he is the only reason Manchester United is at its spot as a team come on people vote De Gea and make England great again.
This guy is unnatural when it comes to reaction speed. Not only that, he defies gravity if he has to. He could play for any team out there
Maybe a bit too soon for this spot, but if he stays with United another 5 to 8 seasons? He has the potential to be the best ever.
Saves the most amazing shots and he never gives up even though his team defense is not perfect.
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.
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.
The best ever united player above them all in every way goals per game
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
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 kicks
I like him better than the rest in united
Best player ever
A great super sub
He is from Norway
Best scandinavian player ever
He set a record in Manchester United and will remain in the Manchester's history. A true Guru
He is one of the best goalkeepers for man united. He should be close to the top.
Probably one of the greatest goal keepers of all time
He remained excellent throughout his whole career.
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.
Greatest player the world hardly saw. Awesome skills and England international. Much better than Best or Cantona if he had lived.
A one of the best talent of England, could be if he lives not a single player
In the world match him... RIP
The best player to come from the British Isles, RIP to Edwards and all who died that faitfull night in Munich.
One of the best defenders to have played at the club, him & Vidic had an amazing partnership.
Best defender in the whole of the man utd team
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.
Some right back. Gets a lot of assists
His a great player
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
If we compare him to a car, it would be Rolls Royce! (c) Sir Alex Ferguson
What? Di maria is a fine player, but his year at old Trafford was a waste for everyone including him.
This guy is rubbish
Make clumsy mistakes
Why you leave man utd
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.
I like him, and I will be a fantastic opportunity
Great player he will only become better
He is amazing
