Former Manchester United left-back Tonny Dunne has passed away at the age of 78, the Red Devils announced on Tuesday.

“The thoughts of everyone at Manchester United and, no doubt, many thousands of supporters, are with Tony’s family and friends at this sad time,” the club said on its website.

“He was clearly among the best full-backs in the club’s history,” it added.

The Irish defender joined the club in 1960 and helped the team win over Leicester City in the 1963 FA Cup final.

Dunne clinched the league title in 1965 and 1967 and was also involved in Man U’s 1968 European Cup.

Between 1960 and 1973, he played 535 games for the team.
