Gordon Hill

Former Manchester United and

England Interational

Gordon Hill is a Manchester United legend. After signing for them in November 1975, he became an instant hit and was adored by the Old Trafford support for his dazzling wing play and stunning array of goals. In Tommy Docherty's cavalier attacking side, he was the wildcard, the player the team would look to to provide the unexpected. He was a great goalscorer and a scorer of great goals, and overall his goal to game ratio was similar to that of Cristiano Ronaldo. When he was sold against his wishes in April 1978, it was a hugely unpopular move by Dave Sexton.

By that time, Hill was an England international; having grown up in London to become 'King of All Cockneys', the man known as 'Merlin' for his magic skills started at Millwall and played for Derby County and QPR as well as many clubs in North America. Since retiring, Gordon became a coach and director and specialises in youth football, at the same time as providing thoughts in the media on all things to do with the game he loves.
