Norman HUNTER Norman Hunter dies aged 76 after Leeds and England legend contracted coronavirus. A member of England's World Cup winners in 1966, Hunter was taken to hospital last week after testing positive for coronavirus, he sadly passed away Friday April 17th 2020. Leeds United legend Hunter, who made 726 appearances during his 17-year stay at Elland Road, was taken to hospital last week after testing positive for coronavirus. Renowned as a fearsome tackler, he won two league titles during his time at Leeds.

Hunter formed a formidable central defensive partnership with fellow England hero Jack Charlton, adding the FA Cup, League Cup and Inter-Cities Fairs Cup during his time there.

Don Revie's men also reached the 1973 European Cup Winners' Cup final and the 1975 European Cup final. Only three Leeds players - Charlton, Billy Bremner and Paul Reaney - have made more appearances for the club.

He also played for Bristol City and Barnsley, managing the latter for four years, before taking charge for a two-year spell at Rotherham United. Hunter made 28 appearances for England between 1965 and 1974.

Hunter did not receive a medal for the Three Lions' 1966 success as rules stipulated that only the 11 starting players received medals.

But he and the remaining members of the squad - including the likes of Jimmy Greaves - received theirs in a 2009 ceremony at 10 Downing Street. Leeds United issued a statement on Friday to say they are devastated by this sad news stating: 'Norman remained part of the furniture at Elland Road throughout the years, being a regular speaker in the suite named in his honour, and was in attendance as recently as last month’s victory over Huddersfield Town.

He leaves a huge hole in the Leeds United family, his legacy will never be forgotten and our thoughts are with Norman’s family and friends at this very difficult time.'
We join them in sending thoughts and best wishes to his friends, family and the many fans saddened by his passing. We invite you to leave tributes, share your memories and light candles in his memory, below:
