Manchester United's Class of 92 will always hold a special place in the club's history - but their role in recent years has been somewhat trickier.

The generation of youngsters including David Beckham, Gary Neville, Phil Neville, Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs and Nicky Butt was the backbone of United's golden era of Sir Alex Ferguson including winning the treble in 1999. But since Ferguson's retirement in 2013, the Red Devils have had a tough time - and the Class of 92 have regularly given their opinions.

With the likes of Neville and Scholes in punditry roles and others still involved in the game, there have been no shortage of instances of the United legends airing their views on what has gone wrong at Old Trafford since they left. In 2019, they were pulled up on that - by former United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The outspoken Swedish striker won the League Cup and Europa League in 2017 under Jose Mourinho and was a key part of the last United side to win major silverware. That made him a popular figure with fans - but he risked his legacy by opting to take on the Class of 92 publicly in 2019 in a debate surrounding Paul Pogba.
