Colin Bell: Manchester City nice dies aged 74

by newsking24

Colin Bell received 44 caps for England and appeared on the 1970 World Cup

Manchester City legend Colin Bell has died aged 74 after a brief sickness, the Premier League membership have introduced.

The former England midfielder made 492 appearances for City between 1966 and 1979, scoring 152 targets. He received 48 caps for his nation.

“Few players have left such an indelible mark on City,” mentioned a membership assertion on Tuesday.

In 2004, Manchester City followers voted to call one of many stands at Etihad Stadium in Bell’s honour.

“Colin Bell will always be remembered as one of Manchester City’s greatest players and the very sad news today of his passing will affect everybody connected to our club,” mentioned City chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak.

“I am fortunate to be able to speak regularly to his former manager and team-mates, and it’s clear to me that Colin was a player held in the highest regard by all those who had the privilege of playing alongside him or seeing him play.

“The passage of time does little to erase the reminiscences of his genius.”

After starting his career at Bury, Bell moved to Manchester City – then in the second tier – midway through the 1965-66 season in a £47,500 deal.

He helped Joe Mercer’s team win promotion that season and was instrumental in the Blues winning the First Division title two years later.

During his 13 years as a player at Maine Road, he also won the FA Cup, League Cup and Cup Winners’ Cup.

‘De Bruyne reminds me a lot of Colin’ – tributes pour in for the ‘King of the Kippax’

Former City team-mate Mike Summerbee, who was part of their ‘Holy Trinity’ alongside Bell and Francis Lee in the 1960s and 1970s, described Bell as “simply the best footballer” the membership has had.

“Colin was a stunning, humble man. He was an enormous star for Manchester City however you’d by no means have recognized it,” mentioned ex-forward Summerbee.

“He was quiet, unassuming and I all the time imagine he by no means knew how good he truly was.

“[Current City midfielder] Kevin de Bruyne reminds me a lot of Colin in the way he plays and the way he is as a person.”

Summerbee, 78, was amongst various former City gamers to pay tribute to Bell, together with movie star followers together with former Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher.
