How many former Manchester United players have managed teams in the Football League, Premier League or their equivalent? Before you read on, see how many you can name.

So far we have counted 38 without going back to Wilf McGuinness, the last former United player to manage the club itself.

Twenty-four played for Sir Alex Ferguson himself. Not surprisingly, all but two of our top 10 come from those former players. The No. 1 choice may surprise you.
