He is perhaps most famous for his idiosyncratic turn of phrase. The portrait includes images of the badges of some of the teams with whom he was associated during his long career ~ West Bromwich Albion, Manchester United, Sheffield Wednesday, Atletico Madrid and Aston Villa. The portrait was created to celebrate his 70th birthday in March 2009.
