Summary
Sir Matt Busby, the legendary Manchester United manager who saw the team through unprecedented glory, as well as profound tragedy, made the club the global entity it is today. As a League footballer before WWII, Busby remained at the forefront of the game for four decades and made an extraordinary contribution to football. Busby's emphasis on youth, local players, and a passing attack game set a template that turned just another north football club into what is now the world's greatest football brand. In this definitive biography, Patrick Barclay takes a look back at Busby's phenomenal life and career, including the incredible force of the Busby Babes in the 50s, the tragic Munich air disaster that claimed 23 lives, and Manchester United's historic victory 10 years on - becoming the first English team to win the European Cup
