Gary Neville Names Cristiano Ronaldo And Carlos Tevez In Overseas Manchester United XI

Gary Neville Names Cristiano Ronaldo And Carlos Tevez In Overseas Manchester United XI

Gary Neville has picked his overseas Manchester United XI, with Cristiano Ronaldo and Carlos Tevez included in the star-studded side.

The world-class pair were both part of the United side that won the Premier League and Champions League double in 2007/08 before leaving for Real Madrid and Manchester City respectively in the summer of 2009.

Notable omissions brought up in the replies were the likes of Park Ji-Sung, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Andrei Kanchelskis but it does have the makings of an attacking team filled with match-winners.
