Van Nistelrooy, 45, was a lethal finisher in his remarkable playing career and scored a whopping 150 times in 219 appearances for the Red Devils.

Kane hasn’t lifted a single major club honour in his career, while Van Nistelrooy captured two La Liga titles, a Premier League title, an FA Cup and a League Cup.

One of the more controversial takes from Carragher was his choice of Manchester City manager Guardiola over United icon Ferguson.
