Kevin Keegan is one of the greatest players in English football history, famed for his style on the pitch, his relentless ambition and passion for the game.
In My Life in Football Keegan tells the story of his remarkable rise through the sport, from the Peglers Brass Works reserve team in Doncaster to helping Liverpool become the kings of Europe, winning the Bundesliga title with Hamburg and captaining England. Keegan was recognised around the world as one of the sport’s genuine superstars and remains the only Englishman to win the Ballon d’Or twice. He remains a legnedary player for all his clubs including Scunthorpe United, Liverpool, Hamburg, Southampton and Newcastle United.
As a manager, Keegan’s five-year spell in charge at Newcastle is now legendary; he led the club from the depths of the old Second Division to the brink of the Premier League title with a breathtaking vision and flamboyant style that saw his team dubbed ‘The Entertainers’.
Fifty years since making his professional debut, Keegan tells the full story of the exhilarating highs and excruciating lows, from that epic battle with Sir Alex Ferguson and Manchester United in the 1995-6 season, as well as the pain of managing England and, finally, the shattering truth about his unhappy return to Newcastle in the controversial Mike Ashley era.
Brilliant, funny, passionate, deeply moving and incredibly honest, My Life in Football is the story of the miner’s son from Doncaster who became a superstar and was known to his adoring fans as ‘King Kev’.
About the Author: Kevin Keegan, OBE, born in 1951, is a former football player and manager for teams such as Liverpool and Hamburger SV. As a player, he is best known for a legendary 1970s spell at Liverpool under Bill Shankly then Bob Paisley. In six seasons Keegan played a pivotal role in Liverpool winning three First Division titles, two Uefa Cups, a European Cup and an FA Cup. He left an indelible mark on the club and their fans by winning the Bundesliga and European Cup in his three years there. He won the highly coveted Ballon D’Or, twice, while in Germany. His ten-year England career, in which he captained his country 31 times, brought 63 caps and 21 goals, but only one, brief World Cup finals appearance in 1982 for the last 26 minutes of England's final second-round game against hosts Spain. He also played for Scunthorpe United, Newcastle United and Southampton. His book, My Life in Football, written with the Guardian and Observer’s chief football writer Daniel Taylor, examines his illustrious football career.
