Man Utd hero ‘feels old’ as reunion shows who aged well and who’s unrecognisable
Ex-Manchester United star Lee Sharpe joked that he "feels old" after posting a photo of himself at a reunion with several members of the Red Devils' 1992/93 Premier League title-winning team.
Sharpe, who made over 200 appearances for the club, met up with Bryan Robson, Mark Hughes, Brian McClair, Mike Phelan, Gary Pallister, Denis Irwin, Paul Parker and Clayton Blackmore to celebrate 30 years since their momentous achievement.
Some of them had aged better than others, like Sharpe who was the only alumni with some colour left on top of his head. Others, like bushy-bearded McClair, were a little harder to recognise.

Hughes and Phelan were fairly easy to pick out given their recent stints in the Premier League, while the likes of Robson, Parker and Irwin hadn't really altered their looks much since their playing days.
The team, which also featured the likes of Eric Cantona, Peter Schmeichel, Ryan Giggs and Steve Bruce, not only landed United's first league title in a quarter-of-a-century, but also helped cement Sir Alex Ferguson's place in Old Trafford folklore.
Where does the 93/94 side rank in terms of all-time best Man Utd title-winning teams? Let us know what you think in the comments section below.
The now legendary Scot had already led the club to FA Cup, League Cup and Cup Winners' Cup glory, but winning the Premier League for the first time was the day his United side truly established themselves as a force to be reckoned with in European football.
Most of the key members of that squad would go on to win several more major honours with the club over the next few years before eventually giving way to the stars of the the fabled 'class of 92' – featuring the likes of Giggs, David Beckham, Paul Scholes and Gary Neville.
Sharpe's reunion snap sparked a decent amount of reaction on social media, with swathes of supporters particularly in awe of McClair's … interesting new look.
"Is that Brian McClair? Can't tell if he looks incredible or terrible," one fan tweeted.
"Legends all of them. Especially McClair with his new homeless rock star look," another commented, while a third wrote: "Brian McClair looking class. Denis Irwin has barely changed either!"
