Charlton`s Autobiography

Sir Bobby Charlon`s autobiography should make interesting reading.

He was a dashing cavalier on the football field, but he has often been seen as a diffident, even dour, personality away from it.

“A grizzlin’ old misery,” was how he was once described by the former manager Ron Atkinson. Sir Bobby is the very opposite of his voluble elder brother Jack, who loves the sound of his own voice and revels in controversy.

In contrast, Sir Bobby is shy, uncomfortable with his celebrity status and awkward on the public stage. And where Jack has long displayed a rebellious streak, his younger brother is the ultimate establishment figure, a director of Manchester United and global ambassador for English football.
