Gary Lineker leads Nobby Stiles tributes as England World Cup winner and Man Utd icon dies

“I remember the stories my family would tell me about watching him play. His legacy will always remain!”

Norman Whiteside wrote: “RIP Nobby Stiles a fantastic footballer but more importantly a lovely man.”

John Giles, who was close friends with Stiles and became his brother-in-law later in life when Stiles married his sister, gave an interview to Off The Ball and discussed the United hero’s relationship with Sir Bobby Charlton.

He said: “Bobby loved Nobby. Nobby could do things on the pitch that Nobby used to envy. Bobby wasn’t a hard nut, he was the best player I ever played with and played against. But he wasn’t a hard nut. Nobby could do things Bobby would have loved to do – tackle, win the ball, be tough, all those things.
