We often look back at the grainy footage of World Cups gone by and are amazed by Argentinians or brilliant Brazilians, with South American footballers still seeming to set the benchmark even during an era when football has been dominated by European sides.
When your side signs a South American player, you can’t help get a tingle of excitement about what your new signing will bring, and despite the superstar players that they have had within their ranks over the course of their history, Manchester United fans are no different.
However, the Red Devils record of bringing players originating from South America is a bit ropey, to say the least, with only a handful able to call their time at Old Trafford a huge success.
So underwhelming has some of their South American signings been that its difficult to remember that some of them were at the club in the first place. So we want to test your knowledge about all of the South American’s to have played a competitive game for Manchester United.
Once you are done, send it on to another United fan to test their knowledge against yours. Good luck.
