4. Paul Scholes - Manchester United

A club legend in his own right, Paul Scholes has been a mainstay in the heart of United's midfield since making his debut back in 1994.

A firm favourite with Sir Alex Ferguson, Scholes has established himself as one of the greatest midfielders of his generation, with a number of world-class players running out of superlatives to describe the Saltford-born midfielder.

Zinedine Zidane famously described Scholes as "the complete footballer" - quite a compliment coming from arguably one of the best players of all time.
