The football world is reeling from the news Diego Maradona is dead.
Argentine newspaper Clarin reported Maradona has died at the age of 60.
Maradona is recognised globally as a true sports icon and revered as arguably the greatest footballer ever.
His death comes on the anniversary of United legend George Best’s death.
United have one Argentine player on the books at present, defender Marcos Rojo.
Rojo led the tributes on social media to Maradona, who won the World Cup in 1986.
United star Marcus Rashford also tweeted ‘legendary’ with a picture of Maradona.
Maradona famously played at Old Trafford in 1984 with Barcelona when his side duelled with a Bryan Robson led United.
His death will be felt for a long time. Maradona is a player and a man who was larger than life, not without his faults, but with the ball at his feet – a true genius.
