Manchester United’s legendary striker, Denis Law has been appointed as an official Club ambassador.
Hailed as one of United’s all-time finest players, Denis signed for United in 1962, 50 years ago this season, for a record fee of £115,000. Denis became an instant favourite with the Old Trafford crowd after he scored on his league debut in a 2-2 draw against West Bromwich Albion. He went on to become one of the most prolific goal scorers in United’s history and amongst the greatest players ever to wear the famous red shirt.
As part of his role Mr Law will attend various events and functions on behalf of the Club, promoting the work it does within the community and its partners, sharing anecdotes from his time at Old Trafford.
His accolades include the 1963 FA Cup, 1964-65 and 1966-67 League championship medals, as well as the 1964 European Footballer of the Year award to name just a few.
Speaking about the appointment Law said:
‘I am delighted and honoured to have been asked to be a Manchester United Ambassador. The Club has changed a lot since my day, but the support and passion of the fans has remained the same and I am looking forward to meeting them as part of my new role.’ Page 2 of 2 Other Manchester United ambassadors include Sir Bobby Charlton, Bryan Robson, Gary Neville, Andrew Cole and Peter Schmeichel.
