Here are represented the best 3 players in Manchester United over the whole time who are also digitally involved in games.

3. Eric Cantona

From 1992 to 1997, Eric Cantona was one of the most popular players in Manchester United’s history. However, before he retired, he decided to pursue his passion for acting. He played in an acting role in Elizabeth, which Cate Blanchett directed.

He has been known for his work in front of the camera, evidenced by the multiple commercials he has done for Nike over the years. One of his most popular commercials featured his propensity for folding his shirt collar. This has led many young football players to say “Au revoir” while their collars are up.

2. George Best

During the 60s and 70s, George Best was regarded as one of the most talented players in the world. His good looks and skills caught the media’s attention, leading to him being called “The Fifth Beatle.” Unfortunately, his off-field problems kept him from playing to his full potential.

Even though he wasn’t able to perform the best performance at his best during his career, he was still regarded as one of the best players at that time. In Ireland, a saying says “Pele Great, Maradona Good, George Best”.

1. David Beckham

Although David Beckham is not the best player, he is still the most popular player in Manchester United. Goldenballs is a marketing machine that generates shirt sales regardless of who wears for or what quality of the game is performed by the particular player.  Beckham’s jerseys are worldwide, and he has been featured in countless Pepsi and Adidas commercials.

He has been invited to various events, such as the Royal Wedding, and he has also been involved in various sex scandals. He has also been the subject of various movie projects, and a whole movie has been released regarding his reputation without his participation.

The man is an icon for football, similar to Derek Jeter for baseball and Michael Jordan for basketball as well as a symbol of the sport worldwide. If people talk about his name in any place around the world, they will immediately recognize him.
