LONDON: Former Manchester United and Scotland manager Tommy Docherty, popularly known as ‘The Doc’, has died after a long illness at the age of 92, his family announced on Thursday. The much-travelled Docherty managed 12 clubs ––- including Chelsea and Aston Villa and a stint in Australia ––- after a playing career that included 25 caps for Scotland between 1951-59 and more than 300 games at Preston North End. “We are deeply saddened by the passing of Tommy Docherty, who led us to FA Cup victory in 1977 with a thrilling, attacking team in the best traditions of Manchester United,” United said on Twitter. Docherty was at Old Trafford from 1972-77, replacing Frank O’Farrell, with the 2-1 FA Cup final victory over Bob Paisley’s Liverpool a highlight along with winning the second division title. Docherty was also famed for his ready wit and acerbic one-liners, joking that he’d had more clubs than golfer Jack Nicklaus. Chelsea, with whom he won the League Cup in 1965, hailed Docherty as a “legend of our game”.
