Roy Keane is a huge presence, on or off the pitch. Talented, determined, outspoken but always respected, he continues to exercise enormous influence on the game - and away from it. Whether lambasting the 'prawn sandwich brigade' of Manchester United fans, or dismissing his former boss, Sir Alex Ferguson's criticisms as 'insulting nonsense', he speaks his mind with the same take-no-prisoners attitude that characterised his battling displays as Manchester United's captain. Throughout a distinguished playing and managerial career that took in Nottingham Forest, Manchester United, Celtic and Ireland, as well as working as a commentator for ITV, he has displayed the same qualities of aggression and determination that mark out his comments off the pitch. Not without controversy, for his uncompromising nature and willingness to speak his mind have brought him a slew of headlines over the years. Now fully updated to take account of Keane's continuing success as assistant manager of the Republic of Ireland team, this book reveals all about the man, the player, the manager and, increasingly, the public figure. By speaking to those close to their subject, as well as members of the public who have encountered him in their everyday lives, the authors have gained extraordinary insights into the man known affectionately to so many fans as 'Keano'.
