Manchester United legend: Museum should stay in Preston

Preston's bid to stop the National Football Museum from moving to Manchester has received support from an unlikely ally - Manchester United legend Sir Bobby Charlton.

The Lancashire Evening Post revealed on Tuesday that the museum was set to move from its home on Sir Tom Finney Way in Deepdale to Urbis in Manchester due to a lack of funding.

However, 71-year-old Sir Bobby, who is president of the museum, is happy with it present location.
