Sir Bobby Charlton has South stand named after him at Manchester United.

Yesterday marked the 60th anniversary since Sir Bobby Charlton first played for Manchester United and it was a very emotional one for the 78th year old who had a stand in the Old Trafford stadium(Sir Bobby Charlton stand) named after him as a mark of honour. Sir Bobby Charlton, who is still Man U's highest goalscorer of all time, 40 years after retiring and is England's second highest goalscorer behind Wayne Rooney couldn't hide his emotions as he headed onto the pitch to a raucous applause and stunning setting of flags spelling out his name in a giant mosaic.

It was a befitting way to honor Manchester United legend Charlton for being one of the greatest if not greatest player to play for Manchester United and England.Sir Bobby Charlton also held the top goalscorer record for BOTH Manchester United and England for over 40 years till Wayne Rooney also of Manchester United took the England record off him.Rooney is also in line to take the Manchester United goal scoring record of Charlton.More pictures of the proud day when Bobby Charlton had the south stand at Manchester United named after him,after the cut...
