Former United player dies

19 November 2012, 07:29

Manchester - Manchester United says Kenny Morgans, who survived the Munich air disaster in 1958, has died. He was 73.

The club said on its website that Morgans was taken ill on Saturday evening and later died in a hospital.

A total of 23 people died when the plane carrying United's young team, nicknamed the "Busby Babes," crashed on the runway at Munich-Riem Airport while trying to take off.

Morgans made a full recovery and resumed his playing career. The Welshman made 23 first-team appearances for United before joining Swansea in 1961 and then Newport County in 1964 before retiring three years later.

He returned to United for its 50th anniversary of the Munich tragedy four years ago and was guest of honor at an Association of Former Manchester United Players dinner.
