'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Fergie Tribute

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson paid his own tribute to George Best.

Ferguson: 'He has left us with a million memories, all of them good ones. At this moment I just think of him as a player. It's those moments we will relish.

'My own particular memory of him is playing against Scotland at Windsor Park. Tommy Gemmill was one of the best full-backs in the world at the time George gave him the mother and father of all chasings. I will always remember that particular day.

'He was such a special player, a phenomenal player and I think I speak for everyone associated with Manchester United when I say he has left us with a million memories, all of them good ones.

'Some people are just born with a craft and leave an indelible mark on people's lives. The thing I remember, apart from his talent, was his courage. I can see him flying down the wing riding tackles from people like Ron Harris, Tommy Smith and Norman Hunter. They were serious guys - you didn't mess with them - and it was a time when you needed to be struck down by a tomahawk just to get booked, yet he rode all that.'
