Former England and Manchester United defender has died aged 60
Former England international Brian Greenhoff has died, aged 60.
Greenhoff passed away at his home in Rochdale on Wednesday morning.
The ex-Manchester United, Leeds United and Rochdale defender was capped by England 18 times between 1976 and 1980.
Born in Barnsley in 1953, Greenhoff began his career as a central midfielder, but made his name as a centre back after becoming a regular first team player at Old Trafford.
Greenhoff signed professional forms for United aged 17. He went on to make 271 first team appearances and remained with the Red Devils for the next nine years.
He enjoyed his most successful period while in Manchester, winning the Division Two title in 1975 and The FA Cup in 1977.
Greenhoff moved to Leeds in August 1979. He remained at Elland Road until November 1983 and after a short stint at Rochdale, retired in 1983.
Our thoughts are with his family at friends at this sad time.
