Never forget how great George Best was, the greatest player in Northern Ireland history and Manchester United Legend.
At 22, he had already won the Ballon d’Or and was the star of English football.
At 28, he had 181 goals for Man United and had won 6 titles, a European Cup between them. However, he couldn’t handle all the pressure and fame. The addiction to alcohol and women ruined him.
“I’m fine. They found some blood in my alcoholic torrent.”
“In 1969, I gave up women and drinking. It was the worst 20 minutes of my life.’
“I spent a lot of money on cars, women and alcohol. The rest I just wasted.”
These are some of his iconic phrases.
In 2005, his liver became infected and he was rushed to the hospital. Knowing what awaited him, he asked his daughter to buy an ad in the newspaper and publish a photo of his condition with the phrase: “Don’t die like me.”
5 days later, he died in the hospital. George Best, The Fifth Beatle. ETERNAL! 👏❤
