Man Utd legend Crompton dies at 91

04 July 2013, 18:23

London - Former Manchester United goalkeeper and coach Jack Crompton has died at the age of 91, the Premier League champions announced on Thursday.

Crompton made 212 appearances for the club and was a member of the team that tasted glory in the 1948 FA Cup and won the First Division title in 1952.

He subsequently became a coach and was a member of manager Matt Busby's back-room staff for United's triumph over Benfica in the 1968 European Cup final at London's Wembley Stadium.

"I have known Jack for many years and was always struck by his humility," said former United chief executive David Gill, who is now an executive committee member of European governing body Uefa.

"His kindness and good humour distinguished him, and the club and football in general will miss him greatly."
