Sir Bobby Charlton, Manchester United’s hero, died last month at the age of 86 and was laid to rest at Manchester Cathedral on Monday. Thousands of fans lined the streets to pay their respects to the man and the legend.
Besides being a legend for Manchester United with 758 appearances for the Red Devils, Sir Bobby was also England’s icon having been a key player in England’s World Cup victory of 1966.
The football community and fans gathered in Manchester on Monday to pay tribute to their hero. A multitude of former footballers attended the service, including current and ex-Manchester United players Harry Maguire, Roy Keane and Ryan Giggs and former coaches such as Sir Alex Ferguson. Prince William participated in the ceremony in his capacity as the president-designate of the FA, as did FIFA chief Aleksander Ceferin and the Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham.
The procession embarked on its journey, first passing Old Trafford, the Manchester United stadium, and proceeded through a guard of honour formed by members of the United youth team. It then made a pause at the United Trinity statue, where the immortalised figures of Charlton, George Best, and Dennis Law stand. The cortege continued its journey to Manchester Cathedral for the scheduled service at 2pm.
Premier League and club flags flew at half-mast.
