The world of football has sacked one of its greatest players this morning. Roger Hunt (83, England), Liverpool striker and one of the top goalscorers in the team’s history, died on Tuesday. Hunt played between 1958 and 1970 for the English club, a period during which he scored 285 goals in 492 games. He was also part of the national team that won the 1966 World Cup.

Liverpool itself has announced the death of one of its stars through statements and messages on the social network Twitter. “We are saddened by the passing of legendary former player Roger Hunt. Our thoughts are all at Liverpool FC with Roger’s family and friends in these sad and difficult times”, they wrote from the English club.

According to the statement, Hunt had died after suffering from “a long illness.” The forward has been retired for nearly five decades since he left Bolton Wanderers in 1972, a team where he only played for two years.
