David Beckham, Gary and Phil Neville, Nicky Butt, Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs - otherwise known as the class of ’92.

These six players all broke through Manchester United’s academy in 1992 and became legends for the Red Devils winning numerous league titles for the club.

The sextet have all since retired from playing football but have all remained close friends, despite taking different paths since hanging up their boots.

Phil and Gary Neville are assistant manager and manager of Valencia respectively, Beckham is starting a football franchise in America, Giggs and Butt are assistant manager and head of the academy respectively at Old Trafford, while Scholes is a regular on BT Sport, often seen criticising his former side.

But, almost 25 years after graduating, Giggs insists they all still get along very well.

"We remained good friends off the pitch and still to this day we still share the same jokes, the same sense of humour and are comfortable in each other’s company. I think it was about that desire and hunger to keep going,” he said in an interview with Inside United, per Manchester Evening News.

Giggs was then asked to describe his former teammates in just one word:

Gary Neville – "I’m going for two words... always right!"

Phil Neville – "Bubbly."

Nicky Butt – "Funny."

Paul Scholes – "Dry."

David Beckkham – "Cocky!"

The Neville’s, Butt, Scholes and Giggs are all co-owners of Northern Premier League side Salford City.

The five former players took over the club in 2014 and helped the side gain promoted in their first season.

The BBC filmed a series called: Class of 92: Out of their league which filmed behind the scenes of the club in which they ran.
