George Best was a Northern Irish footballer who played as a winger for Manchester United and the Northern Ireland.
Football genius George Best was discovered as a young teenager in early sixties by Manchester United Scout in Belfast. Best’s 138 goals in 361 games for United established him as an unforgettable legendHe was way ahead of his time, unique in his looks, loved women, loved life but the greatest love for him was football. George had become the first show-business, “pop-star” footballer, receiving more than 1,000 fan mail letters a week. The shops, modelling assignments and personal appearances aspect of George’s career was booming. However for a modest lad from Belfast it was also overwhelming and it temporarily took its toll on his football career. After winning two league titles and one European Cup at Old Trafford, his decision to leave Manchester United at the age of  27 brought an end to his career as a top-class player as his self – willed lifestyle inevitably took its toll on his body, and the patience of team-mates and managers alike. But to many who saw him play at his peak, George really was the best. Before his passing in 2005, he had also become renowned for his amusing sayings some of which you can find below.
