The Red Devils' tribute to the legendary 'Busby Babes'

The Manchester United Foundation has released a commemorative film in honour of the 60th anniversary of the Munich Air Disaster, with the help of first-team players Ander Herrera, Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard.

Busby Babes were a group of professional footballers of Manchester United F. C. that were some kind of a super-team before super-teams even existed.

They were young, they knew how to play excellent football, and their starting team was Manchester United.

Eight of these young fine men have died in Munich air disaster, that occurred on February 6, 1958.

Roger Byrne, Eddie Colman, Mark Jones, Duncan Edwards, Billy Whelan, Tommy Taylor, David Pegg and Geoff Bent lost their lives in the plane crash. Other 15 passengers also have died on that day.

Johnny Berry and Jackie Blanchflower, among 17 other injured people, survived the disaster.

Manchester United's player paid a tribute to their football role-models, and you can see it in this video.
