Welcome

 

Welcome to World Football Legends.  The idea behind the site is to give detailed biographies of some of the greatest players and managers in the history of the game. The site is a work in progress and the intention is that when complete there will be more than 350 people featured.

 

Biographies are being added in order of the person's date of birth, starting with the earliest legends of the game and gradually moving towards the present day. As a result, any players born more recently than the latest additions to the site will not yet be included.

 

If you have been redirected from a page on the old site, please use the search facility to see whether that player is on the new site.  If not, that person will be on the list of players to be added in the future. Please check back regularly for new content!

Johnny GilesIreland Republic

(Republic of Ireland)

Born: Wednesday 6 November 1940, Dublin, Republic of Ireland
Position: Winger/Central Midfielder

One of the Republic of Ireland's finest players, Johnny Giles began his career as a winger with Manchester United before being converted into a midfield player at Leeds United where he played a pivotal role in the club's greatest era. Becoming player-manager of the Irish national team while still a star player at Leeds, he later combined that job with managerial duties in both England and Ireland before developing a successful media career.
