Jackie Charlton. Leeds legend! England legend! A giant! A leader. He & Norman Hunter were the cornerstone of the legendary dirty Leeds in the 70’s! Reunited with his fellow centre half no one will be getting past those two in football Heaven. RIP sir!

@SirBobby on the sad passing of Norman Hunter yesterday: "Norman was a great player and a formidable competitor. I was deeply saddened to learn of his passing and all of us at Manchester United offer our sincere condolences to his family, friends and everyone at Leeds United.”
We're extremely saddened to learn of the passing of Norman Hunter at the age of 76. Norman was part of our @FIFAWorldCup-winning squad and won 28 caps for the #ThreeLions . All of our thoughts are with his family, friends and supporters at this time.
RIP Norman Hunter, 76, from #coronavirus . One of the hardest men to ever play football, earning himself the nickname ‘Bites Yer Legs’. Also one of the best defenders to grace the game, & was part of England’s 1966 World Cup winning squad. Very sad news. 🙏
