From the very earliestdays of Manchester United, the figure of the captain played a significant role. Harry Stafford famously helped save the club when it was on the brink of going bust in 1900, while a few years later Charlie Roberts not only led the side to trophy success but was also a key figure in the foundation of the PFA, which helped protect all footballers nationwide.

More recently, United has been led by a wide range of characters, from the controversial and charismatic Frenchman Eric Cantona to the distinguished Bobby Charlton; from the fiery Roy Keane to the elegant Martin Buchan. All brought their distinctive take to the job, inspiring the players around them by their commitment, passion and skill. Now Wayne Rooney has joined that famous list, as United begin a new era under Louis van Gaal.

In this fascinating account, Ben Hibbs not only tells the complete story of all to have worn the captain's armband at United, but asks what it is that sets certain players apart to become the leader on the pitch. Featuring interviews with various previous holders of the role, including the new captain, this is the definitive book on the men who have been at the beating heart of Manchester United.
