Biography: One of the most deadly finishers to grace the game, Law had the ability to produce results whilst also able to entertain the crowd. Earned his nickname 'The King' by scoring 237 goals for the club in 404 games after his record £110,000 transfer from Torino. An FA Cup winner in 1963, he was voted 'European Footballer of the Year' a year later. Law helped United to League Championships in 1965 and 1967 but he missed the European Cup Final win over Benfica with a knee injury. A hugely popular figure with the fans, he was given a free transfer by Tommy Docherty and returned to Maine Road where he relegated United with a back heel at the end of the 1973-1974 season. That was to prove to be his last ever League game. Undoubtedly one of football's great personalities. Since leaving the playing side, has worked as a commentator on both television and radio, and is a popular after dinner speaker. Has since won a battle with prostate cancer. Lives in Bowden, Cheshire.
