Boxing legend Muhammad Ali, who died on Friday night, touched all of sport. Even football.

One of his greatest quotes in the 1970s came when Ali recorded a video message for former Derby County manager Brian Clough.

“There is some fella in London named some Brian — Brian Clough. Some soccer player or something. I heard all the way in Indonesia that this fella talks too much. He says that there is another Muhammad Ali — there is just one Muhammad Ali.

“I’m the talker. Now Clough, I’ve had enough, stop it.”

Clough, who died in 2004, eventually got to meet Ali in 1974.

There will never be another like either of them.
