Manchester United: Picking an All-Time Foreign Reds XI

Manchester United have fielded some of the world's best players in their long and illustrious history, but it wasn't until 1980 that Nikki Jovanovic became the club's first real foreign Red.

The Yugoslavia international played 21 times for United and was soon followed by Dutchman Arnold Muhren in 1982.

Muhren was a genuine star at Old Trafford, and his success paved the way for the likes of Jesper Olsen, Andrei Kanchelskis and Eric Cantona to make their names at the Theater of Dreams.

Since then, foreign stars have arrived in ever greater numbers. With the introduction of the Premier League in the early 1990s, English football became a melting pot for the world's best talent, and United have been lucky enough to boast more than their fair share.

Here's my United best foreign XI, picked from players born outside of Britain and Ireland.
