Best Salary & Net WorthHow much did George Best earn?
George Best has a net worth of...
50,000 Euros (59,000 Dollars)
Here's a legend whose career ended before most people get their big breaks. His decline started when he was twenty-two years old. He was with Manchester United at the time, and honestly, the club should have done more to protect this generational talent a lot better. The way in which he handled everything was akin to an amateur, and nobody helped him focus on the most important thing in his life- Football. He spent every bit of money that he made, and we think Bestie was left with just fifty thousand Euros when he passed away in 2005.
Current JobWhat does Best currently do?
Bestie could have made it in a rock band. He, however, chose to spend time as an analyst of the game after retirement. His vices didn't let him flourish in that field either. (Image: imgur.com)
Get Me a Stella
The Irish stereotype holds to people from Northern Ireland too. He was a drunkard. He was flamboyant on the field, and even more in life. He always had to go the excess distance to prove a point, to whom exactly is a mystery. (Image: imgur.com)
Look Away Georgie
This was one of those rare times when he was not focusing on the booze in front of him. Would his career have been saved, had he done that more often? Maybe, but he wouldn't have gone into the downward spiral, the abyss that sucked the daylight out of him. (Image: imgur.com)
You have to have one with the other. These two are not mutually exclusive. It's no surprise that he loved the girls, and they liked hanging around with him. The second step in his downfall was complete when he started indulging without any inhibitions. (Image: imgur.com)
He probably hated his liver the most. Because everything he did turned out to be detrimental to that organ. An insanely talented man attracted the opposite gender. Why wouldn't he soak up in all that presumed niceties when he could? Bestie was to be a proponent of the YOLO lifestyle. (Image: imgur.com)
Stella Makes Ya Yella
The hits that his liver took meant that they were no longer useful to him and had to be replaced. He had a transplant in 2002. He was diagnosed with severe damage earlier to that. He paid for all the drinking with his health. (Image: imgur.com)
Don't Die Like Me
The man was an addict, and we offer our deepest condolences to his family and friends. But he didn't learn his lesson at all. He continued drinking even after the operation and while on immunosuppressive drugs. His system couldn't take the beating anymore, and he died in November 2005. A pitiful end indeed.

Love Life - Single, Girlfriend or Wife?
George Best Ex-Wife - Alex
The man looks a shadow of his former youthful self. He was a stylish bloke who had it all. Alex couldn't put the brakes on him. (Image: imgur.com)
George Best Ex-Wife - Alex
The body language says it all. Alex was sick and tired of him by now. She married him in 1995 and divorced a decade later. (Image: imgur.com)
Family - Get to know them
Best Ex-Wife - Angie
Angie is a model and a former playboy bunny who was married to El Beatle. She couldn't put the shackles on him either. (Image: imgur.com)
Best Son - Calum
Calum is Bestie's boy. Dad's drinking took a toll on the lad. He's now a patron of a charity that helps kids deal with alcoholic parents. (Image: imgur.com)
Best Car - What does he drive?
The man was well paid for his time. He could easily afford the E-Type, which was one of the most beautiful cars of the time. (Image: imgur.com)
House - Where does he live?
Location: Stockport, England
One of the most futuristic houses ever built in England, back in the day, was commissioned by Bestie. (Image: imgur.com)
