On 12th September 1970, Hullmuth Costard took a load of cameras to Old Trafford and filmed George Best playing football against Coventry City. The final film, ‘Fußball Wie Noch Nie’ was released in 1971, its status as a document to the best footballer to never play a World Cup only being a footnote.
A footnote I discovered in 2006, with the release of ‘Zidane: A 21st Century Portrait’, my hunt for this film began. A hunt which ended in 2020. This is my edit of the film.
