Alan Hansen’s Premier League All Time XI

Alan Hansen

Alan Hansen has been a mainstay on Match Of The Day since the Premier League started in 1992.

Alan Hansen is retiring as a pundit on BBC’s Match Of The Day.  Here is his all time Premier League dream team.

1. Peter Schmeichel

2. Denis Irwin

3. Rio Ferdinand

4. John Terry

5. Ashley Cole

6. Cristiano Ronaldo

7. Steven Gerrard

8. Paul Scholes

9. Gianfranco Zola

10. Alan Shearer

11. Thierry Henry

As with any team like this, there are always debates about positions.  In defence it could be claimed that Vidic could be in ahead of Ferdinand.

In midfield it is a bit of a big call to leave out Roy Keane, Patrick Vieira was a colossal midfielder too.   There have been so many great players who have lit up the Premier League since its inception in 1992 that picking a common consensus probably not going to happen, especially when supporter bias comes into play.
