It’s surprising, that for all of United’s success during the Premier League era, Ronaldo is the only United player to win the Ballon d’Or, indicating he was the only real superstar to play with United during this time.
In 13 years at the club, the attacker won 16 trophies, including five league titles and a Champions League. He was scrutinised towards the end of his United career but he left the Red Devils as their all-time top scorer with 253 goals.
Peter Schmeichel has to be in my top three. The Dane is the greatest goalkeeper to play in the league. We are becoming more aware just how important having a world-class keeper is for a team to be successful and without Schmeichel, United wouldn’t have been so dominating during the ’90s.
