Denis Irwin No. 3- Signed for a bargain £625,000 from Oldham Athletic in 1990, Denis Irwin was regarded by Sir
Alex Ferguson—the manager of Manchester United from 1986-2013– as one of his shrewdest signings. The Irish international full-back was a cornerstone of United’s defence during the Reds’ dominance of the 1990s, regularly scoring free-kicks and penalties. A near-flawless defender on either flank, Irwin made over 500 appearances for United in an epic playing career, snaring silverware aplenty. The Irishman was a virtual ever-present in the Reds’ infamous Treble season, and he continued as a first-team fixture until 2002, before he did his two-year stint with the Wolverhampton Wanderers. Irwin’s return to Old Trafford the following year as a visiting player provoked a mass outpouring of applause and admiration from the home support, in recognition of a player who contributed as much as anyone to one of the most successful periods in the club’s history.
