When people talk about Manchester United players they often mention the legendary Class Of 92' or the immortal "Busby Babes" but there are a set of players who have been overlooked by the fans in spite of giving everything for United. Here is a list of 5 unsung heroes who have contributed their fair share to the club.

#5 Gary Neville

It can be safely said that Gary Neville was the Ringo Starr(The least talented member of the Beatles) of Manchester United during his nine year spell with the club. The defender was often berated by critics who didn’t consider him Manchester United material but Neville kept his head on his shoulders and was an integral part of the team up to his retirement. Neville was never the best right-back in the world – hell he wasn’t even the best right-back in Manchester but was always consistent which is why he survived at the highest level for so long.

 The Bury-born lad gave everything he had for his team and always managed to regularly get a 6.5 match rating. Neville even joked that he’ll probably have 6.5 etched on his tombstone when he dies. The 39-year-old will always be remembered by United fans for his hate of Scousers, which he displayed at Old Trafford when he celebrated Rio Ferdinand’s goal against Liverpool in front of the visiting fans. Neville will go down as one of the most faithful and respected players to ever put on the famous red shirt – critics be damned!
