Football players can be hard sometimes and could look like they’ve already played the game when they’re still standing in the tunnel.

Some of the Manchester United players also see the pitch as more a battlefield than anything else. And here are the Top 10 Red Devils’ hardest players.

Nemanja Vidic

With a constantly broken nose, Nemanja Vidic was simply brave at the back and an ice-cool defender.

He was the best centre-back of his generation and his none-shall-pass attitude helped United smash the record for most minutes without conceding a goal.

Vidic’s passion for clean sheets was matched only by his passion for beating opponents in a 50/50 challenge.

Jaap Stam

Jaap Stam looked more like a hitman than a footballer, as his shoulders were so broad that forwards struggled just to find a way around him.

He played three seasons at United and won three Premier League titles. He also dared to antagonise Sir Alex Ferguson in his autobiography and that’s how hard Jaap Stam was.

Eric Cantona

Cantona is one of the most mysterious players of the Premier League era, and one of the hardest.

His bravado alone gets him on this list.
