Chelsea legend Peter Osgood has died suddenly at the age of 59.
Osgood collapsed while attending a family funeral service on Wednesday.
Known affectionately as the “King of Stamford Bridge”, he made 380 appearances for the Blues and scored 150 goals, helping us win our first FA Cup in 1970 and first European trophy, the Cup Winners’ Cup, in 1971. He was capped four times by England.
There will be a minute’s silence before tonight’s England international against Uruguay at Anfield.
