Manchester United players honor the late Bobby Charlton

The players from Sheffield United and Manchester United honored the late England World Cup winner Bobby Charlton prior to their Premier League match on Saturday.

The 49-goal international midfielder Charlton “passed peacefully in the early hours of Saturday morning,” according to his family. Charlton was 86 years old.

In addition to playing a significant role in England’s World Cup victory in 1966, Charlton was also a very successful club player for United, who in 1968 became the first English side to win the European Cup.

At Bramall Lane, United captain Bruno Fernandes placed a wreath, and an image of Charlton appeared on a huge screen.
