Patrick Vieira was interviewed by SportingIntelligence.com and asked which players would make his best XI from all the years he’s played in England.
Remarkably, Vieira’s team, which he couldn’t restrict to just eleven players, was filled with Manchester United players, some Arsenal players, and nobody from his current club, Manchester City.
“I would pick out Giggs, Scholes and Keane from United,” he said. “It would be hard to restrict it to only 11 players. Steven Gerrard would be in my team. I would go with Thierry for sure, Henry. And I like Andy Cole. I like Dwight Yorke. Bergkamp. Alan Shearer. David Seamen. Stam. And Martin Keown.”
