Juan Mata names Manchester United dream XI, with controversial snub for Wayne Rooney

Posted by

Mata names a legendary Man Utd XI, with current team-mates left out.

Manchester United playmaker Juan Mata told Sky Sports his dream Red Devils XI, with club legends like Ryan Giggs, but no room for current team-mate Wayne Rooney

GK: Peter Schmeichel

One of the best ever goalkeepers to play in this country, it’s no surprise to see United legend Peter Schmeichel in goal in this XI.

DC: Rio Ferdinand

A world class centre-back for many years, Rio Ferdinand is another obvious choice for Mata in this dream XI.

DC: Nemanja Vidic

Superb alongside Ferdinand in defence, Nemanja Vidic was a real leader and big-game player for the Red Devils.

DC: Patrice Evra

Part of a back three here, Patrice Evra was a superb all-rounder at left-back and up there with United’s best in the modern era.
