London - Manchester United are to name Old Trafford's South Stand, which contains the only original part of the 1910 stadium infrastructure, after one of the club and England's legends, United director Bobby Charlton.

Charlton joined United as an apprentice in 1953 and made his debut in October 1956. He went on to make 758 appearances for the Club, scoring a club record 249 goals.

Until recently, the 78-year-old Charlton also held the honour of having scored the most goals for England, with 49 in his 106 appearances, until current United captain Wayne Rooney broke the record against Switzerland in September 2015.

The unveiling of the new name will take place at the Premier League home game against Everton on April 2.
