Former Manchester United and Chelsea manager Dave Sexton has died aged 82, the Football Association said.

The FA's director of football development Sir Trevor Brooking said: "It is a sad day for English football. Anyone who was ever coached by Dave would be able to tell you what a good man he was, but not only that, what a great coach in particular he was.

"In the last 30-40 years Dave's name was up there with any of the top coaches we have produced in England - the likes of Terry Venables, Don Howe and Ron Greenwood. His coaching was revered."
