7 former Manchester United players you didn’t know were still playing

Sir Alex Ferguson did a hell of a lot right at Manchester United, but people always forget that the Scot did a lot wrong during his time at Old Trafford – they’re still trying to overcome the mess the Premier League’s most successful manager left them in.

From Jordi Cruyff to David Bellion, Sir Alex has a list as long as your arm of failed signings, overpriced flops and embarrassing acquisitions. But what’s amazing is that, somehow, some of those chaps are still knocking around the beautiful game!

What Sir Alex Ferguson achieved was always impressive, but when you realise the fiery Scot accomplished it all with the likes of Liam Miller, Eric Djemba-Djemba and Kleberson in the middle of the park, your respect for the great man grows that little bit more.

Out of the current crop of Red Devils under Jose Mourinho, we are placing money on Luke Shaw, Sergio Romero and Antonio Valencia making such lists in five years time: “Luke Shaw, who runs a part-time burger van outside Billericay Town FC’s ground, is a tad chubbier than his playing days at Old Trafford.”
