Place of birthAberdeen
NationalityScottish
PositionDefender

Buchan was one of United's greatest ever defenders, a sweeper in the Bobby Moore class. He captained United in three FA Cup Finals, a winner in 1977, and led them as Second Division champions in 1975. An elegant player with great pace, intelligent and a born leader, the team of the '70s was built around him. An extremely consistent performer, his career was sadly cut short by persistent injuries.
