Man Utd legend Roy Keane voted best ever Premier League captain ahead of Vincent Kompany and John Terry – The Sun

ROY KEANE is the greatest Premier League captain in history, according to SunSport readers.

On the back of Vincent Kompany announcing his departure from Man City after lifting the FA Cup back in May, we devised a poll asking readers to decide who wore the armband the best.

On the list were Arsenal's Tony Adams, Rio Ferdinand, Steven Gerrard, Keane, Kompany, Wes Morgan, John Terry and Patrick Vieira.

Around 2600 people had their say and there was a resounding winner.

United's former hard man Keane took 36 per cent of the votes ahead of Terry in second who had 19 per cent.

Kompany, who won 10 major domestic trophies, was third followed by Gerrard, Vieira and Adams who all had 9 per cent of votes.

Ferdinand and Morgan were both at the bottom of the pile.

Keane was the driving force behind Manchester United's dominance from the early 1990s until the mid-2000s.

He captained the side to the Treble – the league title, the FA Cup and the Champions League – in 1999.

And amid their current woes, what United fans would do now to have him marshalling the midfield once more.

Meanwhile, Kompany revealed that he moved to Anderlecht to become the club's player manager – but his return to Belgium hasn't started well.
