03. Roy Keane – Manchester United – Ireland
Shockingly in spite of facing 11 red cards in his career time he is at top level football captains in history. Some of you may think Roy Keane lacked the discipline that is required to make a great captain. Although anyone of that opinion never saw him captain either Manchester United or Ireland. His services for his team are remarkable and really good enough. He was a player who played aggressively but only for the victory of his team.
His effort was richly rewarded when Manchester United won seven Premier League titles and they also won four FA Cups and one Champions League trophy. In his career time we find his finest and best performance in 2001 against Juventus when Keane silenced the talents of Edgar Davids and Zinedine Zidane, and controlling the midfield for Manchester United. He was an interesting dual personality who was appreciated and also criticized equally. He is the third successful football captain in the history.
