Johnny Carey

Date of birth23 February 1919
Place of birthDublin
NationalityIrish
PositionFull back

John Carey was United's captain when they won the FA Cup (1948) and League title (1952) - Busby's first successes. A sprightly forward pre-war, Busby converted him successfully to a classy defender, skilful, inspirational and play-maker from the back, unique at this time. An intelligent, studious player he was Busby's 'manager on the pitch', versatile playing in every defensive position including once as goalkeeper. Footballer of the Year in 1949, this modest man was genuinely surprised he was considered such a good player.
