Described by Nobby Stiles ‘as the closest thing to George Best’ he has seen, Ben Thornley is a man who was destined for a long career at Old Trafford. A graduate of the class of ’92 alongside the Neville brothers, David Beckham, Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs and Nicky Butt, Ben was a flying winger who had it all. Sadly, a tackle in a game for the United reserves changed his life. With his new autobiography, ‘Tackled’ due to hit the shelves, I reached out to Ben to hear his story ahead of the launch. To my delight, he obliged. Enjoy.
