The Football Association has paid tribute to Dave Sexton, the former Chelsea, Manchester United and England Under-21 manager who died on Sunday at the age of 82.

Sexton, OBE, managed England U21s to two European crowns during the 1980s and was appointed the first technical director at the FA national school at Lilleshall. Sexton played for Luton, West Ham, Leyton Orient, Brighton and Crystal Palace before going into coaching, winning the FA Cup in 1970 with Chelsea and the European Cup Winners' Cup a year later.

FA chairman David Bernstein said: "The whole of The FA is saddened by this news."
