Number 7 for MU

Manchester United's famous No 7 shirt can be a heavy burden. Sportsmail takes a look at four of United’s most inspirational players to wear the hallowed shirt...

Bryan Robson (1981-1994) ‘Captain Marvel’ won two Premier League titles, three FA Cups, three Charity Shields, a Cup-Winners’ Cup and UEFA Super Cup in 13 years at the club.

Eric Cantona (1992-1997) Took over the famous shirt from Robson in 1993. He was never far from controversy, but won four league titles, two FA Cups and three Charity Shields and is considered one of the most entertaining players in United history.

David Beckham (1993-2003) As famous for his off-field exploits as his play on the field, Beckham was pivotal in the most glittering period of the club’s history, winning six league titles, two FA Cups, four Community Shields and a Champions League medal.

Cristiano Ronaldo (2003-2009) Forced to wear the No 7 shirt by Sir Alex Ferguson when, aged only 17, he signed for the club from Sporting Lisbon. He shrugged off the pressure to win three league titles, an FA Cup, a Community Shield and one Champions League.

Real Madrid paid £80million for Ronaldo in 2009, making him the world’s most expensive player at the time.
