Publisher's Summary

Kevin Keegan is one of the greatest players in English football history. Throughout his career as a player and manager he was famed for his style on the pitch and his passion for the game, which he shared with his fans.

In My Life in Football, Keegan tells the story of his life, from the streets of Doncaster to signing for Liverpool under Bill Shankly, where he won three First Division titles, two UEFA Cups, a European Cup and the FA Cup before moving to Hamburg, where he won the Bundasliga as well as the Ballon d'Or twice.

After retiring, Keegan enjoyed a legendary five-year spell as manager at Newcastle United, during which the club was promoted to the Premier League and then finished runners up in the top flight, not once but twice. 

In My Life in Football, Keegan tells the full story of the glorious highs but also the pain of managing England and his unhappy return to Newcastle for a short-lived second tenure.

Brilliant, funny, passionate, deeply moving and incredibly honest, My Life in Football is the full story of an incredible journey from miner's son to being crowned 'King Kev' by his adoring fans. 

This audiobook includes a bonus-feature interview with the author, Kevin Keegan.

Throwback to my happiest football memories

This wonderful book took me back to the happiest memories I have as a Newcastle fan and some of the best times I enjoyed with my dad. A hero of my dad's as a player and a hero of us both as a manager. I can now appreciate much more fully Kevin achievements before my time and decisions which I couldn't understand on occasion. The book confirms why we all loved keegan, a charismatic. passionate man who wears his heart on his sleve. I only whish he'd narrated the audio book himself (no slight against the narrator, who is very good). Kevin, i wish you all the best in your retirement. Howay the lads!

Kevin keegan love u

This book shows how much of a great guy manager and footballer Kevin keegan was and is. He is a football man through and through hecould walk into any team today and be a great manager still he could do it I support Newcastle because of my admiration for Kevin keegan, so it didn't work out as England but as a club manager he's one of the best.

I may be biased but...

... I'm writing this as a huge Newcastle United fan and has Kevin Keegan as their footballing hero! The book is typical Keegan... honest, insightful, accessable and interesting. While I was engrossed and fascinated by his three touch points with Newcastle, I really enjoyed hearing about his early years and his time at Fulham, England and Manchester City. Highly recommended to any true football fan.

Loved it 😄

Great book. Far better than expected. Definitely loved it. Never realised how poor football club owners could be.
