The fabulous trio of Law, Charlton and Best are etched into the psyche of many a Manchester United fan of a certain age. Here, Denis Law tells Jimmy Armfield about his early days playing for Huddersfield Town, spells at Manchester City and Italian club Torino and his international career with Scotland. He also reflects on the heady years at Manchester United and remembers the fatal back-heel goal of 1974, with which he sealed the relegation of his old club while playing against them for Manchester City.
