“You can’t go anywhere in the world without talking about Manchester (United) and Sir Bobby Charlton, they just go hand in hand,” Sadler said. “They were just made for one another, and he certainly upholds everything that is good about Manchester United.”
“Sir Bobby represents everything that is good about the game of football; fair play, respect, and true loyalty and he is a good example for future generations, both on and off the pitch,” Platini said in 2009.
“That’s how my career started at Manchester United. I went to [the Bobby Charlton soccer school] at 10 years old and went back there the year after and ended up winning the competition,” Beckham told the BBC in 2017.
“That was when Sir Bobby contacted Manchester United and said ‘maybe you should have a look out for this young kid’.
“So I owe everything to Sir Bobby because, if not, maybe I wouldn’t have had the chance of living my dream of playing for the club that I’d supported for so many years and the club my Dad supported.
“He has always been about being successful, but even more so about helping other people. That’s what’s so special about him – he’s respected on the field, but even more so off the field.”
