George Best

George Best was discovered aged 15 in Belfast, by Manchester United scout Bob Bishop, who excitedly sent a telegram to Utd manager Matt Busby. It read simply: "I think I've found you a genius." Bishop was right, and after a colourful 20 year career Best is now bracketed alongside legends of the game such as Pele, Maradona and Johan Cruyff. Indeed the affection and esteem with which he is held in his native Northern Ireland is summed up perfectly by a local saying: Maradona good, Pele better, George Best.
