Leeds United mourns club’s iconic defender: Trevor Cherry died at 72

Leeds legend Trevor Cherry has died “unexpectedly and suddenly” today, Leeds United reports. The former English international played for Leeds from 1972 to 1982.

“We are deeply saddened by the unexpected and sudden death of club legend Trevor Cherry,” said Leeds United.

In 1974 Cherry Leeds helped to win the Premier League title. A year later he played the final of European Cup I, the predecessor of the Champions League, with Leeds. Bayern Munich was a buddy too strong then.

Cherry was also an English international. He played for the national team 27 times. In 1980 Cherry was allowed to come to the European Championship in Italy as a substitute. England was then eliminated as 3rd in a group, behind group winner Belgium and the host country. Cherry then had a raid against Spain alone.
