About this artwork

Celebrated as the 'King of Old Trafford', Aberdeen-born Denis Law spent most of his career playing in England and is particularly associated with Manchester United. The fiery Scotsman was fiercely competitive and could score from anywhere on the field. He was voted European Footballer of the Year in 1964. A superb entertainer, 'he gave absolutely everything when on the pitch'. In his retirement he continues to entertain audiences as a television and radio commentator.
