World Cup legend leaves £322k
ENGLAND World Cup hero Ray Wilson, who played in the legendary trophywinning 1966 team, has left £322,884 in his will.
It is less than a week’s wages for Manchester United star Alexis Sanchez who earns more than £20 million a year as the Premier League’s highest paid player.
Wilson, who died aged 83 in May after battling Alzheimer’s, was the leftback in Sir Alf Ramsey’s team which beat West Germany 4-2 in the final at Wembley. Playing for Huddersfield and Everton, he won 63 England caps in the Sixties before retiring from the game in 1971 and becoming an undertaker in Huddersfield. He was made an MBE in 2000.
Probate records reveal he left his estate in trust for his wife Pat and sons Russell and Neil.
