  • George Best

    George Best was arguably one of the most talented footballers of his era who captivated his fans with his extraordinary skill, agility and flair. Since his childhood, he nurtured a single-minded love for football. At the tender age of 15, his raw talent caught the eye of ˜Manchester United' scout Bob Bishop, who was convinced about George's potential. Before long, George Best started playing for ˜Manchester United' and immediately endeared himself to the club's fans with his fast and attractive style of playing. What followed was four glorious seasons for both Best and his club, during which the team won a host of trophies. Best forged a deadly partnership with Denis Law and Bobby Charlton, the two other ˜Manchester United' greats and reached the zenith of his career when he led his club to a European Cup triumph. Among the three, Best was considered to be the most gifted. He was certainly the most flamboyant but his hedonistic attitude and his overwhelming success did not help as he began a downward spiral into debauchery and decadence, effectively ending his career as a player. Throughout his shenanigans, he adopted an air of nonchalance and disarming honesty. He lived a similar lifestyle right till his last days and the greatest heartache for his fans was the fact that he could have accomplished so much more on the field.
