Despite a lifetime of football glory, Manchester United legend Sir Bobby Charlton has never forgotten how tough a miner’s lot can be simply because he came from a family of them – including his father. It therefore comes as no surprise that Charlton has issued an invitation to the 33 trapped miners in Chile with an invitation to watch United play at Old Trafford once they are freed. The release of those miners is inching closer following two months of being entombed underground with their rescue mission expected to be completed by the weekend.
Sir Alex Ferguson wants Ryan Giggs to become a member of the Red Knights. No, NOT the consortium of multi millionaires who are determined to get rid of the Glazer family but to join the exclusive club of Manchester United legends like Sir Matt Busby, Sir Bobby Charlton and himself who have been recognized with a knighthood by the Queen.
To Old Trafford legend Sir Bobby Charlton the challenge is simple “It is crucial that United reassert their dominance in the Premier League, anything other than the championship trophy will be failure” he says as if his demand is the easiest thing in the world to achieve. And the 1966 World Cup winner is confident that United would have learned from the mistakes which may have been made last season.
