Premier League

6 Hardest Of The Hardest Manchester United Players. See The Details.

Manchester famous old Trafford stadium-the theatre of dreams-has witnessed spectacular bruising matches and a number of players have distinguished themselves as toughest. These tough players are reasons why the club has been very successful through the years.

1.Roy Keane.

One of the fiercest players in the premier league. Some of his highlights includes the vangeful tackle on Alf Inge Haaland, those battles with Patrick Viera, 10 redcards he received and being sent home from the Republic of Ireland's 2002 world cup. Roy Keane was a brilliant player nonetheless who demanded everything from those around him.

2.Nemanja Vidic.

One of the best Centre-backs of his generation, the Serbian helped United break the record for most minutes without conceeding a goal. He led United to 5 league titles and a Champions league and United surely miss him.

3.Jaap Stam.

The missing ingredient that helped United to the treble, Jaap Stam looked more like a hitman with very broad shoulders, forwards really struggled to get past him. Three seasons at united, three league titles,dared to antagonise Sir Alex Furguson in his autobiography- shows how hard he was an his time at united was cut short.

4.Peter Schmeichel.

He was a true leader who would berate at his backline should they make even the slightest error. The Great Dane was a mountain at the back and his personality synonymous with United's relentless pursuit of trophies.

5.Steve Bruce.

Steve put himself through hell and back on the pitch and always looked battered within a few minutes in a match. Bandages abound and a broken nose, Steve Bruce was invaluable at the back and in the air. In matches, he was usually covered in blood, and sweating buckets.

6.Nicky Butt.

The hardest of the famous 'class of 92' Nicky Butt served as a worthy deputy for Roy Keane. Rarely on the first team, he however seized the opportunity in the 1999 champions league final - with Roy Keane suspended- and didn't give the Bayern Munich midfield any rest.
