We are extremely saddened to learn of the passing of Nobby Stiles MBE.
An integral part of our first-ever European Cup-winning side, Nobby was a titan of the club’s history, cherished for his heart and personality on and off the pitch.
He will be sorely missed by us all.
Sad news. Thoughts with all the family and friends of legend Nobby Stiles ❤️
@WayneRooney I met him once, at a signing event before 2006 world cup, asked him who his current favourite player was and he said it was you. He said you were the best natural talent he'd seen since Duncan Edwards.
@WayneRooney Oh my god i thought he was already passed??????.Rip legend.
