The 2007/08 season was his greatest of his career, as he played a key role in United's Premier League and Champions League victories. Brown appeared in more games than anybody else on the team and excelled at right-back, standing up for the injured Gary Neville. He won the UEFA Club Football Award as the best defender in the world.
During his time at Man United, Brown earned a reputation as one of the best defenders in the world and was named captain by new manager Alex Ferguson. He left United after four seasons to join Chelsea, where he will be able to play in the Champions League every year.
Brown is currently playing for Chelsea and has been since January 2013 when he moved across London after signing a three-and-a-half-year contract with the club. He had been at Man United from 2004 until he left in 2009. During his time at Old Trafford, he won two FA Cups and one Champions League medal.
He made 349 appearances during his time at Man United and scored 12 goals. He ended his time at United as their second most successful defender behind Neville with 379 appearances and 13 goals.
Brown is also known for scoring in each round as England beat Germany in the 2010 FIFA World Cup. The first goal came in the last minute of the first half and the second goal came in the last minute of the second half - both from free kicks.
For Leeds United, Harry Kewell was one of the most gifted players in the Premier League. However, the Australian was frequently chastised for his injury record and lack of commitment during his career, which began with the Leeds junior squad in 1995.
As Liverpool prepares to welcome Leeds United to Anfield, we take a look at a lineup that includes notable players from both teams in recent years.
As a player, I won two Premier League championships with United, an FA Cup with Chelsea, and a League Cup with Blackburn, and as a manager, I earned Premier League Manager of the Month in 2007.. Gullit's playing career came to an end at Stamford Bridge, and he struggled in England before becoming player-manager in 1996.
The Manchester City center-back confirmed his departure from the club following an impressive 11-year career. Over the weekend, Vincent Kompany confirmed his return to his previous club Anderlecht as player-manager. After 11 seasons at Manchester City, the centre-back left on a high note after clinching a domestic triple.
Beckham, David Beckham, one of the best English midfielders of all time, was a critical element in Sir Alex Ferguson's system for over a decade, with his sweet right foot and proficiency from set-pieces. He won six Premier League titles during his nine full seasons with Manchester United. The Scottish manager described him as "the most complete player I have ever worked with".
After retiring from football, he has had a successful career as a fashion designer and advertising executive.
England's all-time best midfielder in my opinion is Paul Scholes, who was also a key member of Roy Hodgson's squad that won the 2010 World Cup. Scholes is a legendary figure at Manchester United having spent his entire professional career there, winning several trophies including the UEFA Champions League twice. He is considered one of the greatest midfielders of all time.
Another great English player is John Terry, who has been captain of Chelsea since 2005. He too is a legendary figure at Stamford Bridge and has won several trophies with the club including the UEFA Champions League.
Terry is one of the most respected players in the world and has been called "the best defender of his generation" by former England international Tony Adams.
Finally, Gary Neville is a renowned sports journalist and analyst who has worked for Sky Sports since 2003.
Top 8 Manchester United Players of All Time
The Englishman played in 669 matches for the North London club during an almost 20-year period. He commanded one of Arsenal's most successful eras, winning four league titles, three FA Cups, two League Cups, and a European Cup Winners' Cup. His achievements earned him a place in the Hall of Fame.
Henry became the first player to be given the honor of being named as part of the England team when he took part in the 1966 World Cup in England. He scored two goals in the tournament, including the opening goal against Italy. England lost the match 2-1 but it was enough to earn them a spot in the next world cup.
In 1970, at the age of 28, Henry left Arsenal to join French club Marseille. He remained with the club for eight seasons, helping them win the Ligue 1 title on five occasions. In 1978, he returned to England and joined Tottenham Hotspur. He finished his career with the Gunners in 1986, having made 552 appearances in all competitions.
Many people consider Alex James to be the greatest midfielder ever to play for Arsenal. He won three Premier League titles, two FA Cups, and a League Cup during his time at the club. He also played in the 1984 European Championships and the 1982 FIFA World Cup. After retiring from playing, James managed several clubs including Arsenal and Spain's Barcelona.
