The terraced house where football legend George Best grew up has been put up for sale.

The modest three-bedroom property on east Belfast’s Cregagh Estate will go on the market tomorrow with an asking price of £165,000.

The sale of 16 Burren Way follows the death of Best’s 88-year-old father Dickie earlier this year.

The former Manchester United star, who died in 2005, learned how to kick a ball in the back garden and on nearby playing fields.
