The rise of the modern footballer as multi-millionaire superstar can arguably be traced to the emergence in the 1960s of one George Best. Best combined dishevelled good looks, supreme talent and a rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle to become the first of many modern players who have transcended their sport to become global superstars.

Genius, Maverick, Legend, George Best is perhaps the most talented footballer ever to walk the face of the earth. Best was the best, Pele, Cryuff, Maradona – all were superb but Best had their talent and more.

George Best had the confidence and arrogance to try absolutely anything – he knew he was a genius and was not afraid to show the world. He revelled in the limelight but as the first of the new superstars, he found himself unable to cope with the temptations thrown at his feet – alcohol, late nights & women. He indulged them all and as a result walked out of top class professional football in 1972 aged just 26.

In this unique insight George takes us back to his early years where we meet some of the characters who had an impact on his life. These include: Tommy Docherty, Alex Stepney, Jim Ryan, Dick Best, Alex Best and Sir Bobby Charlton.

• George Best’s name is still sung today by Manchester United fans and he remains an incredibly popular player.

• Here, Best and those who knew him best tell the fascinating story of his life as a Manchester United player.

• Fans can relive the genius of Best as well as the controversy that followed him throughout his career.

• Manchester United fans are very aware of the club’s history and this portrait of one of the greatest players to have lived will appeal to supporters of all ages.
