A total success! Legendary Manchester United football star Denis law made his first visit to Chile on Saturday, November 22 with the English team’s Marketing Manager, Jonathan Rigby.
Law’s intense schedule began that very day with an awards ceremony for Casillero del Diablo’s “Busca la Señal” campaign in which Wayne Rooney himself (via video) selected the winner of a trip to England for two to see a match between Manchester United and Arsenal in the imposing Old Trafford Stadium.
The next day Law went to two supermarkets in Santiago to sign bottles and T-shirts for Casillero del Diablo and Manchester United fans who were happy to meet the historic player, who shared stories about some of his best moments on the field.
On Monday Law had the opportunity to visit the Concha y Toro vineyards in Pirque and visit the famous Casillero del Diablo cellar, where he was awed by its rich history.
He had excellent media coverage during his visit and gave interviews with the major television stations, and newspapers, who were anxious to know more about this important sports figure who rose to glory in the 1960s, both in the Scottish World Cup team and the club that won over his heart, Manchester United.
Denis Law’s Résumé
In addition to winning the Ballon d’Or award, Law also holds a Champions League title, two English league titles, and an FA Cup, and played for Scotland in the 1974 World Cup in Germany. He continues to hold the Scottish record goal tally with 30 goals.
In honour of his excellent career, Manchester United installed a statue of him and two other team stars, Bobby Charlton and George Best—the trio known as the “HolyTrinity”—at the entrance to the stadium.
Today Denis Law, 74, is considered one of the most important players in the Club’s history, primarily for the number of goals by the “Red Devils”, a total of 237 in 404 games.
