A star of Manchester United, George Best was an extraordinary talent, a winger as tactically anarchic as he was unpredictable and elusive on his day. Fast, uncatchable with the ball at his feet, equipped with extraordinary dribbling skills, and very adept at scoring, his career was unfortunately short-lived due to his poor work ethic.
