  • Description

    GEORGE BEST, STAR OF THE ENGLISH FIRST DIVISION FOOTBALL TEAM MANCHESTER UNITED, IS TO SOCCER WHAT THE BEATLES ARE TO THE WORLD OF POP MUSIC - TALENTED, UNORTHODOX AND IDOLISED.

    ALREADY, AT THE AGE OF 20, BEST HAS PLAYED MORE THAN 160 GAMES FOR UNITED AND HAS BECOME AN AUTOMATIC CHOICE FOR THE NORTHERN IRELAND INTERNATIONAL TEAM.

    IN PLAY, BEST IS INSTANTLY RECOGNISABLE FOR HIS INDIVIDUAL BRILLIANCE AND BY HIS BEATLE-CUT MOP OF BLACK HAIR.

    FOR HIS FOOTBALLING ARTISTRY, GEORGE BEST - BORN IN BELFAST, NORTHERN IRELAND - EARNS WELL OVER ONE HUNDRED POUNDS (STERLING) A WEEK AND IS DESCRIBED BY MANCHESTER UNITED'S MANAGER MATT BUSBY AS "ONE OF THE GREATEST PLAYERS EVER".

    HE ALSO EARNS THE ADULATION OF THOUSANDS OF YOUNG FOOTBALL FANS.

    OFF THE FIELD, BEST HAS PUT HIS MONEY INTO A MANCHESTER FASHION BOUTIQUE, BUT FREELY ADMITS HE SPENDS AS MUCH MONEY IN THE SHOP HIMSELF AS ANY CUSTOMER, FOR HE HAS PASSION FOR NEW CLOTHES.

    HIS LIFE AWAY FROM THE FOOTBALL FIELD IS AS FLAMBOYANT AS HIS PLAY AND, AT WEEKENDS, CAN BE SEEN RELAXING IN MANCHESTER'S NIGHTCLUBS. BUT ONLY AT WEEKENDS FOR DURING THE WEEK, WHEN STRICT TRAINING SCHEDULES ARE PART OF THIS LIFE, BEST LIVES THE DEDICATED LIFE OF A YOUNG SOCCER STAR WHO REALISES THAT STAYING AT THE TOP IN BIG-TIME FOOTBALL IS A MATTER OF HARD WORK AND FITNESS.
