From a Cork childhood to the World Cup finals, the story of football's toughest competitor. Love him or hate him, Roy Keane is the inspiration behind Manchester United FC's success over the past nine years. A relentless, aggressive midfield general, Keane has epitomized United's winning approach on the field - at times bringing him into trouble with referees, other managers and, of course, the Football Association. He's also been in trouble off the pitch as well, and it's good to see that these incidents have not been omitted. This book is bound to sell in huge quantities in the red half of Manchester, as well as the whole of Dublin, but United's national - and international - appeal to millions will ensure bumper sales figures for Penguin.Vom Verlag:
Roy Keane, captain of Manchester United and the Irish national team, was born in Cork in 1971. He signed for Manchester United from Nottingham Forest in 1993. In 2000 he was awarded the PFA Player of the Year 2000. His footballing intelligence and fierce determination helped Ireland to qualify for the 2002 World Cup. But his passion has sometimes given rise to the wrong kind of headlines. His commitment to winning has led to violent confrontation on the pitch and controversy off it.
