Video: Roy Keane On Best Two Strikers He Played With at Manchester United

Roy Keane refused to pick between four great Manchester United strikers when asked who the best two he played with were.

The Old Trafford legend appeared on a special Sky Sports retro edition of Monday Night Football where he looked back on his career with the club.

And the subject of strikers came up, leading to a strong response from Keane.

He was asked by presenter Dave Jones about the partnership he’d pick between three quality options in Dwight Yorke, Andy Cole, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Teddy Sheringham.

But Keane refused to do so, saying it would be unfair to pick just two from the three:

Keane won a famous treble of the league, FA Cup and Champions League alongside all four players back in 1999.

So you can understand why all three hold a special place in his heart.

Yorke and Cole were the preferred strike partnership for the majority of that season under Sir Alex Ferguson, but it was Solskjaer and Sheringham who scored the winning goals as United beat Bayern Munich in what is now one of the most memorable Champions League finals ever.
