George Best is widely acknowledged as one of the best footballers of all time. He was a hugely skilful player with incredible dribbling ability, which made him a firm fans favourite. Best was famed for his creative and flamboyant playing style combining skill, pace and ability to score exceptional goals with both feet.

The football legend played for Manchester United and was named European Footballer of the Year in 1968, following United’s European Cup victory. He went on to make 361 appearances, scoring 137 goals for the Red Devils. Best also earned 37 caps for Northern Ireland which he described as recreational football. He would go on to play for numerous clubs across different countries including America, Australia, Hong Kong, Ireland and Scotland.

Best was one of the first celebrity footballers with his good looks and playboy lifestyle. He famously said “I spent a lot of money on booze, birds, and fast cars. The rest I just squandered.” He earned the nickname ‘El Beatle’ due to his extravagant lifestyle. This would ultimately lead to personal problems including alcoholism, which was a key factor in his early death aged just 59.
