#3 Louis Saha
When we talk about prolific strikers to have played for Manchester United, one player that gets overlooked is Louis Saha, whose true potential was wasted due to injuries. The Frenchman arrived at Old Trafford on 23 January 2004 from fellow Premier League club Fulham after helping them secure promotion last term.
He quickly proved his worth when he scored seven goals and assisted three more in the second half of the 2003-04 season and formed a partnership with Ruud van Nistelrooy. Though his spell was highly injury-riddled, he still managed to score 42 goals in 120 games for the club.
United legend Rooney claimed that he was the best strike partner he ever had in an interview. He said:
"There are so many but I'm going to say Louis Saha. He was a fantastic player, a real handful for anyone and I just really enjoyed playing off him."
In 2008 the talented player was let go on account of his injuries and he joined Everton on a pay as you play basis.Published 23 Nov 2018, 17:13 IST
