George Best was one of the best footballers of his generation. He was idolised at Manchester United and there would be women who would be crazy to just talk to him. And as you might have suspected, Best had many encounters with the opposite sex. He was also charged of alcoholism. He had to spend Christmas of 1984 in jail because he was driving drunk and had assaulted a police officer. It’s sad that such a player who could have been a legend for the world, turned out to be this way!
