Can you name every French player to appear for Man Utd in the PL?
Thirteen players from France have represented Manchester United in the Premier League over the years – but how many of them can you name?
France has become a natural shopping destination for England’s top clubs over the past 30 years; it’s close to home, the players are cheap and quality is more or less assured.
And the exploits of the French national team – two World Cups, a European Championship and runner-up in each competition since 1992 – has reinforced the belief that you can’t go far wrong by adding some Gallic flair to your side.
Managers like Sir Alex Ferguson, Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho have attempted to do just that during their time in charge.
Some of the French players that have represented the club are Old Trafford heroes, while others are much less fondly remembered by the United faithful but almost all of them will have stuck in your memory for one reason or another.
We’ve given you the number of Premier League appearances each player made and the number of goals they scored, but that’s all. The time to beat from the Planet Football office is 03:09 and you’ve got 15 minutes to complete the challenge.
And if this has you hankering for another brain teaser, then have a go at naming every player to score 100 or more Premier League goals. Hint: there are a few United men among them.
