Manchester United’s 1999 treble winners: Where are they now? From David Beckham to Raymond van der Gouw

Sports Staff

It is the 20th anniversary of Manchester United's historic treble triumph, which saw Sir Alex Ferguson's side win the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League.

Here, we take a look at what the squad for the 1999 Champions League final are up to now.

Starting XI

Peter Schmeichel

The Danish goalkeeper, who captained United in the Champions League final in the absence of the suspended Roy Keane, works as a television pundit and has hosted his own show - The Peter Schmeichel Show - on Russia Today. He has also appeared on Strictly Come Dancing and The Weakest Link.

Gary Neville

The former United and England right-back has proved himself one of the most insightful pundits in the game with his work for Sky Sports. Neville also co-owns Football League newcomers Salford City along with fellow Class of '92 graduates Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs, Nicky Butt, Phil Neville and David Beckham.

Jaap Stam

The Dutch defender is set to succeed Giovanni Van Bronckhorst as Feyenoord manager, with a compensation package taking him from his current job at PEC Zwolle. Stam took his first step into management at Reading in 2016.

Ronny Johnsen

The former centre-back has been working as a pundit for Norwegian channel TV2 and also has a role as one of United's ambassadors. He has taken his coaching badges and has a UEFA A licence but has yet to venture into management.

Denis Irwin

Another to do ambassadorial work for the club, the treble-winning left-back works as a presenter on United's in-house MUTV channel and appears as a pundit on Irish network RTE.

Jesper Blomqvist

Initially after retirement, the Swedish winger worked as a pundit in his native country but he now owns a pizza restaurant on Lidingo Island near Stockholm - perhaps inspired by his time at AC Milan and Parma.

Nicky Butt

The 44-year-old is head of the youth academy at United, replacing another former Red Brian McClair in the role in 2016. Butt has helped to oversee Marcus Rashford's breakthrough into the first team.

David Beckham

As well as his recently acquired stake in Salford, Beckham is starting up his MLS franchise in Miami. The former England captain still does charity work for UNICEF, modelling for a range of lucrative sponsors and various television appearances.

Ryan Giggs

Currently in charge of the Wales national team, the Salford co-owner cut his teeth in management at Old Trafford as caretaker boss following the dismissal of David Moyes in 2014. Giggs was then assistant to Louis Van Gaal for two years.

Dwight Yorke

Assistant manager of the Trinidad and Tobago national side in 2009 and 2010, Yorke occasionally works as a pundit. He paid off a seven-figure tax debt to avoid a bankruptcy petition filed by HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) at the end of 2018.

Andy Cole

Currently on the coaching staff at League Two club Macclesfield, having been brought in by manager Sol Campbell in January. Cole is back in good health again having needed a kidney transplant to save his life in April 2017.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

The match-winner in the Champions League final is the current manager of the club.

Teddy Sheringham

Occasional television pundit, the former Stevenage manager was in charge of Indian Super League club ATK up until the beginning of 2018. He recently became a father again at the age of 51.

Raimond van der Gouw

Wes Brown

The 39-year-old has not officially retired and was playing in the Indian Super League for Kerala Blasters in 2018. Brown does work with the Manchester United Foundation.

Jonathan Greening

The 40-year-old can be heard on BBC radio and podcasts and also works at the i2i Soccer Academy based in York.
