Manchester United mourns the death of Sir Bobby Charlton and declares a state of mourning

“No one embodies Manchester United’s values better than Sir Bobby Charlton. He survived the shock of the Munich accident when he was 20 years old, playing every game thereafter as if he was playing in memory of his friends, and recovering from his injuries to soar to the sky with the club and the national team.”

With these words, the English football club Manchester United mourned one of its most prominent stars and one of the most famous players in the club’s history. He was part of the England national football team that won the 1966 World Cup, and was named the best player in Europe that year.

His stardom began when he played for Manchester United from 1954 to 1973, and he played 106 games for the England national football team, including the 1966 and 1970 World Cups. He held the record for the highest number of international goals scored by an England player for 45 years, scoring 49 goals. He is historically the second highest scorer for the national team after Wayne Rooney, who took over as top scorer with 50 goals in 2015.
