George Best: Tribute to a Legend by David Meek
George Best was a phenomenon of British sport. Blessed with an exceptional footballing gift, he was the first celebrity footballer and to many he remains the greatest player ever. He set the football world alight as a precocious teenager with Manchester United where he won two League championships in 1965 and 1967, and one European Cup in 1968 - the year he was named European Footballer of the Year - only to walk out of the game at the age of twenty-six having proved that he was the greatest footballer in the world. Much has been written about his personal struggles but this book is a celebration of the playing career of this highly individualistic footballing hero.
