Kenny Sansom considers himself a lucky man. But he also knows he's pushed that luck. As a footballer he soared to great heights - but as an individual he also sank to life-threatening lows. The fans in the Highbury terraces may have sung 'There's only one Kenny Sansom' but no-one ever really knew the whole truth about one of English football's best-loved icons. Kenny was a firm fixture in the cup-winning Arsenal and England defences for most of the 1980s. He won a record-breaking 86 international caps at left-back and was there to witness the real truth behind Maradona's controversial 'Hand of God' goal that broke English hearts and robbed the team of a place in the 1986 World Cup final. But the addictive side of Kenny's personality threatened to destroy not only his career but his rock-solid family life too. He has since found the strength to fight back and defeat the demons of drink and gambling. Laying his soul bare for the first time, his searing story reveals the highs and lows of a man at the peak of professional achievement yet dangerously close to losing it all.
