Northern Ireland and Manchester United legend Norman Whiteside is selling his football memorabilia in the hope of making up for the fortune he missed out on during his playing days.

In a nine-year career starting in 1982, Whiteside became the youngest man to play in a World Cup and the youngest to score in both League Cup and FA Cup finals.

Making his debut for Manchester United at 16, he was their youngest captain at 20 and was in two of their FA Cup-winning sides.
