Perhaps the most decorated and most controversial Manchester United captain ever in the club history.

Keane replaced Eric Cantona as the captain of this famous club. The midfielder was known for his hard hitting tackles and fierce commitment to the game.

Keane was central to United’s brilliant treble back in the 1998-99 season. Following his horrific injury marred season in 1997-98, the midfielder came back brilliantly as the Red Devils dominated the domestic circuit.

The Irish midfielder’s most defining moment was in the Champions League semifinal against Juventus when he made a challenge knowing it would end his chances of being at the Nou Camp in the Champions League final.

The fearless midfielder also guided United to three Premier League titles.

So who are the recent most notable captains? when it comes to naming most recent names Gary Neville would be the obvious choice. A true Mancunian by blood the right back came through the United academy and established himself in the United first team.

In a span of seven years as United captain Neville lifted two Premier League titles and also the Champions League in 2008 which happened to be the last success in the European territory.
