Former United stars wish Paddy happy birthday

As Paddy Crerand turns 80, very special United legends have sent him some birthday messages…

David Beckham: I just wanted to wish you a happy birthday. I hope you have an amazing time and I look forward to seeing you soon.

Patrice Evra: Hi Paddy, it’s me, not Patricia - I hate it when you call me that! They told me you are 80, but I think you are 100 because, for me, I think you are like a dinosaur. But you know what? I love you. I miss you. I miss your comments and don’t forget to love this game! I know you can say it, even if you hate it. C’mon Paddy! I love you forever.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: Happy 80th. I have to say, you don’t look a day younger. I wish you all the best and have a nice day.

Cristiano Ronaldo: Hi Paddy. How are you? I’m just sending you this video to wish you a happy birthday and many years of good health. I hope to see you soon my friend. Take care.

Sir Alex Ferguson: Paddy, it’s your 80th so I wanted to wish you a very happy day and I hope you enjoy it. We go back a long time - I was listening to an interview you did on MUTV a few years ago when you claimed I was a dirty player. Well Paddy, I played against you remember and I was subject to your enormous hostility and venomous tackles. I don’t forget these days, but we also used to meet on a Saturday night at St George’s Square and get the last bus home. That was a long time ago. A long friendship, a long time we’ve known each other and you had a great career as a footballer, there’s no doubt about that. So I wish you a very happy day.
