    BEST INTENTIONS is the George Best Story which also includes the last ever interview with this gifted footballer from Belfast. George Best is arguably the greatest player ever to set foot on a football pitch. Blessed by genius, he had the confidence and arrogance to try absolutely anything matched to a charismatic character that reached a far greater audience than those on the terraces at Old Trafford. The first of the new footballing superstars, Best marked the transition of players from simply dedicated professionals to pop culture icons. Unable to cope with the temptations of his celebrity lifestyle, indulged himself to excess in alcohol, late nights and women and as a consequence they would have a toll on his career. George Best was without doubt one of the greatest footballers to have graced the game. Over the course of his career he scored 115 goals for Manchester United, was instrumental in helping the club win their first European Cup, played for Northern Ireland 37 times and earned the admiration of players the world over. Also included is Best's View which is George Best's last ever interview: An extremely rare and exclusive insight into George Best from the mouth of Best himself filmed alongside former teammate and lifelong friend Rodney Marsh. George Bests TESTIMONIAL MATCH - On August 8th, 1988 a Testimonial Match was held in Best's honour at Windsor Park, Belfast. Gathered there was a collection of some of the sport's greatest players from all over the world such as Ossie Ardiles, Rudi Krol, Pat Jennings, Liam Brady, Paul Breitner, Emlyn Hughes, Johan Neeskens and Trevor Francis. The game was both exciting and rammed full of goals. An entertaining football event and a fitting and emotional farewell to one of the sport s most inspirational players. Relive that historic match time and again, accompanied by original commentary and post-match interview.
