Former Manchester United and England Player Brian Greenoff Dies Aged 60.

Sad news that Brian Greenhoff passed away in his Rochdale home on Wednesday morning at the age of 60.

Greenoff, who was born in Barnsley, joined Manchester United back in 1968 after representing Yorkshire Schoolboys. He made 271 appearances for United.

Greenhoff won a second division winners’ medal with Manchester United back in 1975 and played in the same team as his brother, Jimmy, who joined United in 1976.

In the last year Brian Greenoff devoted his time to writing an autobiography that was foreword by Tommy Docherty, who described him as “a manager’s dream.”
