As a mark of his influence as a leader Manchester United, Roy Keane is the only former Reds colleague Eric Cantona included in his all-time Perfect XI.

The ex-Man United maverick picked the current Ireland assistant manager as part of a midfield three with Colombia legend Carlos Valderrama and one of the all-time greats in Diego Maradona for FourFourTwo magazine.

Cantona says Keane's inclusion is down to the fact that "he was the best in midfield; he could play everywhere" and "lead my team and inspire them".
