Former Leeds United manager Jimmy Armfield has lost his long battle with cancer.

The former England international, who was part of the England World Cup winning squad in 1966, passed away in the early hours of Monday morning at the age of 82.

Armfield played over 650 games, including 43 for his country and he was best remembered for his playing career at Blackpool, where he spent 17-years as a player.

Armfield arrived at Leeds in 1974 and he led the side to the European Cup final in 1975 where they were cruelly beaten by Bayern Munich 2-0 in Paris.

Vital Leeds United send their deepest condolences to his family and friends at this sad time.
