Can you name every Manchester United club captain of the PL era?

Manchester United is a club built on the foundation of strong leadership within its squad – and never was that truer than during Sir Alex Ferguson’s reign.

During his time at the club, United won 13 Premier League titles and boasted some fantastic captains.

What we want you to do here is name every player to have been appointed club captain – not those who just wore the armband a couple of times – since the English top-flight was rebranded in 1992.

“He’s come in and been a leader in the group. I’ve been, not surprised, but I’ve been impressed by his leadership skills, so he will keep on wearing the armband,” said Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on appointing the club’s latest captain back in January 2020.

“He’s come in and everything about him tells me he is a leader. He’s part of a group that we’ve had, that have been leading this young group.”

The first of them straddles the pre-and post-Premier League eras, but we’d be surprised if any United fans fail to name him. You’ve got 10 minutes to get him and the other 10.

The score to beat from the Planet Football office is 9/11 but full marks are definitely attainable if you put your mind to it.

If this gives you the taste for another quiz, why not try naming Manchester United’s top scorer from every Premier League season?
