The Greats – Charlton on Ball

“The first of the one-touch players. He had an amazing sense of where other players were around him, his vision was great. He never passed a ball more than 10-15 yards, but he never gave it away and that was a great strength. He was also very aggressive and when defending he had this ability to get amongst opposing players’ feet”
