Denis Law's Biography

Denis Law is one of the most successful Scottish players in British footballing history. With more than a decade spent at Manchester United, he still holds the number two spot on the club’s goal scoring chart.

Law began his career at Huddersfield Town at the tender age of sixteen, until he was bought by Manchester City for a record breaking transfer fee. He spent just a single season with the club before going on to break a second transfer fee record when he moved to Italian club, Torino in 1961.

After several years playing at Huddersfield Town, Manchester City, and Torino, he returned to the UK in 1962 to join Manchester United, where he became part of the League Cup winning team in both ’65 and ’67.

Law was capped fifty five times for Scotland and played as part of their 1974 World Cup team. He retired from the sport in 1975, and continues to hold the record of most goals scored in a single season for Manchester United, and for most goals scored for his national team. Considered one of the greatest players in the club’s history, Law is the only Scottish player to be awarded the Ballon d’Or, which he won in 1964.

Since his retirement, Denis has appeared as a television and radio commentator on a variety of football games. He was inducted into English Football Hall of Fame in 2002, and that same year United erected a statue of him at the Scoreboard End at Old Trafford. In 2010 he replaced the late Sir Bobby Robson as the Patron of the UK charity Football Aid.
