Man Utd legend Gary Neville names former team-mate Roy Keane as Premier League’s greatest ever captain

FORMER Manchester United star Gary Neville has named club legend Roy Keane as the greatest Premier League captain of all time.

Neville retweeted a sky Sports post on Twitter asking that question with the Irishman’s name.

Roy Keane is the best ever Premier League captain, according to Gary Neville
Neville played alongside Keane for 12 years at Manchester United

The pair played together for the Red Devils for 12 years, most of which were laden with trophies.

Neville played for United all his career, while Keane joined in 1993 from Nottingham Forest before departing in 2005 for Celtic.

Both were integral members of Sir Alex Ferguson‘s glory years.

And SunSport readers are in agreement with Neville.

Earlier this year we asked the same question – and Keane took 36 per cent of the vote.

Chelsea legend John Terry was second with 19 per cent.

Vincent Kompany, who won 10 major domestic trophies with Manchester City, was third followed by Steven Gerrard, Patrick Vieira and Tony Adams who all had 9 per cent of votes.

Rio Ferdinand and Leicester’s title-winning leader Wes Morgan were both at the bottom of the pile.

Keane was the driving force behind Manchester United’s dominance from the early 1990s until the mid-2000s.

He captained the side to the Treble – the league title, the FA Cup and the Champions League – in 1999.
