Bruce: The best Premier League stars I played with and against

Steve Bruce has selected Eric Cantona and Alan Shearer as his best Premier League stars.

Bruce is looking to lead Aston Villa back into the top-flight this term.

And, as the Premier League celebrates its 25th year this season, Bruce was asked to name the best stars he played with and against.

He told us: “How can I separate Giggs, Cantona, Scholes, Beckham, Robson?

“If I had to pick one, it would be Cantona because of his influence in terms of walking into Man Utd and having the impact he did with his certain arrogance – he was something to behold.

“In terms of players I came up against, I would say Alan Shearer. 

"On the bus the other day, we were watching Shearer’s goals.

“As a Premier League player to play against, he was the complete centre-forward.

“Cantona and Shearer get my vote. 

“Hopefully by the end of the transfer window, we will have something like that up front for ourselves. Wouldn’t be bad, those two would it?”
