This weekend marks the 50th anniversary of George Best's debut for Manchester United.
The iconic number seven earned a place in the history books and fans' hearts at Old Trafford thanks to his spellbinding performances and off-the-pitch antics.
The story goes that when Best was a mere slip of a lad in Belfast, he was spotted United scout Bob Bishop.
Upon his return to Manchester, Bishop told Matt Busby: “Boss, I think I’ve found you a genius”.
Despite his celebrity and all the distractions that come with it, Best managed 470 appearances for the Red Devils and scored 179 goals - including a 93rd minute strike in the famous 1968 European Cup final against Benfica.
To celebrate the anniversary of such a momentous occasion, we here at GMS have compiled some of the most famous quotes from the great man, and about the great man.
