WATCH: The Denis Irwin tribute that proves he was arguably the best left-back in Premier League history

Posted by

When people mention the words ‘Manchester United’ and ‘Cork’ the first man to come to mind is almost always Roy Keane.

Many of the current generation wouldn’t know much or even heard of Keane’s fellow countyman Dennis Irwin who is also from Cork and played for Manchester United from 1990-2002.

This tribute video shows that Irwin is not only a United legend but quite possibly the best left back in Premier League history.

From free-kicks and penalties to tackles and clearances the 5ft 8 inch Irishman had it all.
