I’m not sure who else would be coming in to play at a higher level.”
The English international defender came through the youth system at Sheffield United before graduating to the first team in 2011. He totaled 166 professional games for the club and was their Player of the Year three consecutive times, also featuring in the PFA Team of the Year for League One as many times.

After two years, he moved to Manchester United for a fee believed to be £80 million, a world-record amount for a defender, and within six months was appointed the club captain.
