5. George Best

Considered to be the first footballing celebrity, George Best was an iconic figure during his playing career.

His attractive style of play, good looks, and great wardrobe made him a celebrity on and off the field.

'Gorgeous George' was a dark haired and good looking Irish boy who went on to grace the pitch for Manchester United and become one of their greatest players ever. Man Utd fans have developed the saying "Maradona good, Pele better, George Best" for his miraculous play at the club.

Unlike any other footballer before him, Best captivated people across the globe to become the World's first celebrity footballer.
