There are Great Football Players and then there are sensational football players. Late George Best, one of the greatest footballers of his time definitely falls under the latter category. He wasn’t just incredibly great at the sport but was also a sensation off the field with humungous number of fans completely in love with the person that he is.
This Manchester United and Northern Ireland footballer has a host of records that he created in the sport. He was known for being one of the swiftest and the most talented dribblers ever, leading his team to victory innumerable times. Bobby Charlton, Dennis Law and George Best were together called ‘the holy trinity’ of the ManU team.
Born in Northern Ireland, George grew up with four siblings and had a pretty normal life. Right from the time as a kid, he was a great footballer. ManU’s scout Bishop noticed him while playing at the age of fifteen. Bishop was so astounded by the young footballer with an exceptional talent that he telegrammed to the manager of the team with the famous words, “I have found you a genius”.
