On this day in 2005, Man Utd European Cup-winning legend George Best passed away

Share This
On 25 November 2005, former Northern Ireland international and Manchester United superstar George Best died in London. His death was caused by complications related to a liver transplant required after years of alcohol abuse.



“They'll forget all the rubbish when I've gone and they'll remember the football. If only one person thinks I'm the best player in the world, that's good enough for me...” - George Best, the Belfast Boy

Best helped United to several honours, including the European Cup in 1968, the same year he was named European Footballer of the Year.

Unfortunately, Best's playing career began to suffer as he battled with his alcoholism. He left United in 1974 and started a journey that saw him play for a number of different clubs. He last played for Tobermore United in the Northern Irish league, for whom he made a single appearance in 1984.
