George Best

Date of birth22 May 1946
Place of birthBelfast
NationalityNorthern Irish
PositionMidfielder/Forward
Died25 November 2005

Best is reputedly the finest footballer ever produced by the British Isles. His total control of a football combined with every other attribute required by a player, meant he could have held down any outfield position. However, it is as a consummate wingman that he is remembered, an outstanding individualist within a team ethic, he was never merely a circus act. He combined the life of a rock star with that of an athlete, a seemingly impossible act which eventually consumed him. He won two League titles (1965 and 1967) and the European Cup (1968). His six goals at Northampton in the FA Cup of 1970 remains a club record.
