George Best – Football Genius

Today marks the day that George Best was born. Best was¬†undoubtedly one of the best players to ever play the game, and in the same vein as Gasgoine, perhaps squandered his best years by becoming too heavily involved in drink and the celebrity status that came with being a high profile player. Best was also probably the first football ‘pin-up boy’, something that would later be bestowed upon David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo. Here are three of his all-time best quotes, followed by his greatest skills and goals.

“I used to go missing a lot… Miss Canada, Miss United Kingdom, Miss World.”

“I spent a lot of money on booze, birds and fast cars. The rest I just squandered.”

“In 1969 I gave up women and alcohol – it was the worst 20 minutes of my life.”
