Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has paid tribute to Ray Wilkins, who passed away on Wednesday aged 61.
Wilkins played for the Red Devils between 1979 and 1984, helping the club win the FA Cup in 1983.
The former England midfielder was also revered at Chelsea, having begun his career with the Blues and going on to be an assistant manager of the 2010 double-winning team.
"I am deeply saddened to hear that Ray Wilkins has been taken from us at such a young age," said Mourinho.
"Ray will be remembered as a fantastic footballer but more importantly he will be remembered as a really true gentleman.
"I was lucky enough to be in his company on many occasions and his love of football always shone through. He will be missed throughout the footballing world."
Wilkins also represented the likes of AC Milan, Paris Saint-Germain and Rangers, and won 84 caps for England.body check tags ::
