#10. George Best: Alcohol Abuse (Football)


George Best is a revered figure in the world of football. People who´ve watched him at his prime even label him as the best player of all time. Those people have even come up with a popular phrase to wax lyrical about his abilities, ¨Maradona good, Pele better, George Best!¨ Although soccer players back in the day didn´t make close to what they do today, they still had enough to lead comfortable lifestyles. Regrettably, George Best was clueless when it came to saving up. He reportedly squandered a fortune on cars and women. His addiction to alcohol also led him to have a liver transplant. By the time he crossed the great divide, he had already spent the $100 million he had accumulated in his lifetime.
