Eric Harrison, Manchester United's 'Class of 92' youth team coach who helped to develop players such as David Beckham and Ryan Giggs, dies aged 81.
Listen to any of the class of 92 lads talk and you'll realise just how important this man was he was the man who made them who they are and got them ready for the first team.
In the eyes of many just as vital as Ferguson in rebuilding the club and putting it back on top as while Fergie recognised the need to recharge the academy it was the work of Harrison that made it possible.
For those who don't know he's been struggling with dementia recently.
