Football's greatest players.Dennis Bergkamp

Football's greatest players.Dennis Bergkamp

One of the greatest players to grace Europe in the 1990's. A prolific goalscorer at international level, the forward was at his best playing just behind the front men, where his clever passes bewildered opposition defenses. The Dutchman scored memorable goals for every team he played for. His last minute winner in the 1998 World Cup quarter final against Argentina was probably his best ever.A major force for Holland , when they were beaten semi-finalists in the EURO 2000 Championships Dennis retired from international football gaining 79 Caps for Holland,scoring 37 goals.

The Greatest Goal scored at Old Trafford

 There have been many great players who have played for Manchester United and the have all scored great goals at Old Trafford. Think of Bobby Charlton, George Best, Willie Morgan, Jimmy Greenhoff,Steve Coppell, Gordon Hill ,Frank Stapelton,Bryan Robson,Mark Hughes,David Beckham, Ryan Giggs, Eric Cantona, Andy Cole,Christiano Ronaldo,Berbatov and Wayne Rooney. But surely the greatest goal was scored by the King, Dennis Law.

Dennis Law.
 Law was born on February 24th 1940 in Aberdeen, Scotland.He signed for  signed to Huddersfield Town in 1955.Dennis had spells with Manchester City and Italian team Torino.It was a then record signing of £115,000 on 18th August 1962, that took Dennis Law to  Manchester United.Here his career really picked up and he achieved  his legendary status.

Here is a list of Dennis's personal achievements and  titles won with Manchester Utd.

  • European Footballer of the Year 1964
  • Inaugural Inductee of the English Football Hall of Fame 2002
  • Scotland's Golden Player by the Scottish Football Association (most outstanding Scottish player of the last 50 years) 2003
  • 37 goals in 67 appearances for Manchester City
  • 236 goals in 393 appearances for Manchester City
  • 30 goals and 55 appearances for Scotland
  • Total of 587 league goals in 300 games

  • 1963 FA Cup with Manchester United
English First Division Title 1965 and 1967 with Manchester United.

For me the greatest goal scored at Old Ttrafford was by Dennis,  his great back-heel for Manchester City v M anchester Utd in  last game of the 1973–74 season .
After a great run by Franny Lee who took out three players, he then slipped the ball back to Law who promptly back-heeled the ball into the back of the net.Law's lack of celebration was because  his goal had relegated United, however they  would have been relegated even if the match had been drawn.

Do you think this is the The Greatest Goal scored at Old Trafford?
