The sharp-shooting midfielder spent all 17 years of his career at United. A member of the Red Devils (United’s nickname), he scored 249 goals in 758 appearances and held the record for most goals for more than 40 years before being overtaken by Wayne Rooney. He is revered as a United legend, having led the club to three league titles and one each of the European Cup and FA Cup. He was also a prolific performer for England. He scored 49 goals in 106 caps and was a key part of England’s 1966 World Cup triumph on home soil. As England’s first and last World Cup winner, he became a national hero and was hugely popular. “He was revered for his sportsmanship and integrity as much as his outstanding qualities as a footballer,” the club said in a tribute.
