The Class of '92 - where are they now?

Posted by Christopher Smith on

If you haven't seen it already, you're bound to love the new Manchester United away shirt for the 2017/18 season (provided you're a United fan of course).

Inspired by United's iconic "Class of '92" that featured the likes of Giggs, the Nevilles, Nicky Butt & David Beckham, the new away shirt uses the same pattern as seen on the team's 1992 away kit. 

To celebrate the launch of the new kit, we thought we'd see what the iconic Class of '92 are up to now.

Paul Pogba models the new kit in his typically understated way

Ryan Giggs

After spending his entire career at Man Utd & cementing himself as a club legend, Giggs finally hung up his boots in 2014. 

After this he spent a brief period as United's interim-manager & then as Louis Van Gaal's number 2 in an ultimately unsuccessful spell.

Giggs is one of the co-owners of semi-professional club Salford City & is currently being linked with numerous managerial jobs, including the 3 clubs recently relegated from the Premier League: Middlesbrough, Sunderland & Hull City. 

David Beckham

David Beckham was ultimately the most famous of all the Class of 92 players, though few would argue he was the best player (though there was almost nobody who could cross a ball as well as he could).

Beckham had a spectacular career in which he played for & won titles with United, Real Madrid, LA Galaxy & PSG. He also spent two spells on loan at AC Milan with mixed success.

Since his football career ended Beckham has spent much of his time modelling & appearing in various advertising campaigns for major companies. He also very recently landed a speaking role, albeit a small one, in King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.

Nicky Butt

Nicky Butt spent 12 years at Man Utd & was known for being an industrious player with an excellent work rate. After leaving United in 2004, he spent 6 years at Newcastle United, a brief loan spell at Birmingham City & an even briefer spell in South China.

He is currently back at United as the club's reserve team manager.

Gary & Phil Neville

While Gary spent his entire career at United, Phil went on the become almost as much of a hero to Everton fans as he was United.

Gary was arguably the best English right back of his generation, while Phil was more of a tough-tackling midfielder.

Phil has dabbled in coaching since his career ended, but at the moment spends most of his time as a pundit on Sky Sports alongside brother Gary.

Gary made a name for himself as a popular pundit on Sky Sports, before an unsuccessful spell as Valencia manager. He is now back on Sky.

Paul Scholes

Alongside Giggs, Scholes was arguably the most talented player of the group. Massively underappreciated & misused by England, Scholes was known for his incredible shooting ability, his eagle-eye for a pass & his complete inability to time a tackle.

It speaks volumes that as he retired, Barcelona superstars Iniesta, Messi, Xavi, Busquets & Pedro all wanted his final shirt: Scholes gave it to Iniesta.

Scholes spent some time on the coaching staff at United during Giggs' interim-spell as boss, while he has also become a pundit well-known for being outspoken & not pulling any punches.
