You can hardly find players like Roy Keane in modern football. Fantastic captain, a leader on and off the pitch, but also a great footballer who won seven Premier Leagues, four FA Cups and the Champions League with the Red Devils.

He was the first Manchester United player to be named as the Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year in 2000, winning the award for a second consecutive time.
