Who where the players that used this number for Man Utd?

My team here in brazil has the same magic in the same shirt...

In Botafogo, Garrincha used this number and since him the 'Glorious number 7' always have been used by the most important players.

Well-know player.

Did the winning goal against Flamengo, that ended 21 years that Botafogo was without a championship, Flamengo had one of the best teams ever in their history, with zico( Fenerbahçe manager) and other player from Brazil national team, they won the brazilian championship that year.

Túlio: against juventus, 3 goals. fantastic goal in the most important competition on america.

Was the best player in the team that won the Brazilian championship.

If im correct

Man Utd's record signing Juan Sebastian Veron caused a stir at Old Trafford when he faced the media wearing David Beckham's number seven training top.

Beckham was one of United's most valuable assets

Eric Cantona, Bryan Robson and George Best - three of United's most celebrated players - all wore the number seven shirt.

Cant remember many more off the top of my head :p
