Today marks the 60th anniversary of the disaster at Munich. One of the most prominent dates in Manchester United’s history. Sir Matt Busby’s babes were taken from us before they came close to reaching their potential. To mark this occasion and emphasise the importance of keeping the memory of these players alive, I took my Granddad, John, and my son, Jayden, to Old Trafford to make this video. Thanks to Manchester United for their co-operation in creating this film.
This video is dedicated to the memory of all the players, staff, journalists and airline officials that perished in Munich, on the 6th of February, 1958.
