Gerrard partnered Roy Keane in the middle of the pitch, with winger Ryan Giggs also named.

Commenting on the team, Neville said: “Schmeichel, Stam… Stam was a monster. He won every ball.

“He was the best I played with, over Rio Ferdinand, yourself (Carragher), John Terry, Tony Adams…

“Stam was a rock and probably one of the best that I’ve played with.

“Keane – midfield, captain. He had one of the biggest influences on me in my career, Keane.

“Giggs has to be in the team… and I’m going to go Stevie G. I love Stevie G.

“I was always in awe. If there was ever a Liverpool player I wanted to be a Man United player, he was the one.”

A shocked Carragher was taken aback after Neville went for Gerrard over Frank Lampard or Scholes.

To which a stunned Neville remarked: “I picked Scholes didn’t I?”

After being told by Carragher he left him out, he added: “Oh f***.

“Scholes is my favourite player of all time. He’s the godfather to my child!”

Neville also declared that Irish icon Keane has a ‘soft spot’ for him as he saw him as the nice brother having ‘hated’ Gary so much.
