Duncan’s closest friend and fellow United and England colleague Sir Bobby survived the crash but has never forgotten those who perished at Munich Airport in February 1958.

And in an emotional tribute to his pal, Sir Bobby said: “Almost 60 years have passed since I last saw Duncan when I left hospital in Munich and I still think of him almost every day.

“I am very pleased to be part of this tribute in Dudley that will pay homage to the memory of my friend, team mate and the greatest footballer I have ever seen.”
