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 the 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.

Kevin Keegan 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 also won the highly coveted Ballon d'Or twice while in Germany. After he retired, Keegan further bolstered his legendary status in the north-east, in a five-year spell as manager at St James' Park during which the club were promoted to the Premier League then finished runners-up in the top flight not once but twice. Spells as manager at Fulham, England and Manchester City followed, and Keegan called time on his managerial career after a short-lived second tenure at Newcastle.
