Roy Keane books
Roy Keane Books
Keano became a true legend at Manchester United. He joined from Nottingham Forest in 1993 for then a British record transfer of £3.75m. He won seven Premiership titles during his time at Old Trafford, plus four FA Cups, and was a Champions League winner in 1999, although he was suspended for the final at the Nou Camp. Keane was a hard tackling midfielder who took no enemies, just ask Alfe Inge Haaland, Mick McCarthy and Patrick Viera. After he criticised his fellow team mates whilst appearing on MUTV, it didn't go down well with the club and Roy left United in December 2005, spending a season at Celtic before becoming Sunderland's manager.

Roy Keane: Portrait of a Legend
By Stafford Hildred & Tim Ewbank Publishers John Blake Publishing 2007
Roy Keane is one of the most notorious figures in modern football. On and off the pitch, he's a huge presence - outspoken, determined, talented, respected - and wherever he goes he's always creating fireworks. His career has seen more than it's far share of thrills and spills, with ferocious tackles, inspired leadership, bust-ups and brilliant goals just everyday occurrences in Roy's world. From the early days of his growing reputation at Nottingham Forest, to his enduring brilliance as the midfield engine of the record-breaking Manchester United side under Sir Alex Ferguson, he's kept the crowds' and critics' attention as perhaps the most dominant force in British football. Throughout his fantastic carer, his trademark aggression and determination on the pitch have meant that he can turn a game around in seconds. It is these same qualities, however, that have often led to him hitting the headlines. Keane has always courted controversy - his robust attitude on and off the pitch have kept him in the spotlight for much of his life in football but, as this book shows, he is also an honourable man dedicated to doing the right thing by himself and others. For his beloved Ireland, too, his presence was at turns talismanic and troubled. His dramatic exit from World Cup 2002 found him in the glare of publicity once more, sent home before Ireland had even finished training. Keane's disputes with the Ireland manager forced him to miss the chance to captain his country in football's greatest tournament. Despite being marred by a long-standing hip injury, a spell at Scottish champions Celtic in the 2005-6 season confirmed his desire to remain involved in the top flight of football. But for Keane, new challenges came in the form of management and his now managing the resurgent Sunderland AFC. This fully up-to-date book reveals all about both man and football player; with insider details from those closest to Roy, as well as members of the public who have encountered him in their everyday lives. Released April 2007.

Roy Keane: Red Man Walking
By Frank Worrall Publishers Mainstream 2006
On 12 June 2006, in a move that shocked his legions of fans at Celtic and Manchester United, Roy Keane announced his retirement from football. Keane claimed the decision was forced on him by a hip injury, but was that the real story? The news was greeted with a storm of speculation, and some suggested that he had left the Old Firm giants after a series of bust-ups with manager Gordon Strachan. Others claimed he had never got over his abrupt departure from Manchester United the previous November. In this revealing biography, Frank Worrall goes behind the headlines to reveal the real Roy Keane. With the help of those who know Keane best, he builds up an illuminating picture of what makes this complex man tick and lays bare his inner demons. From Keane's early days in Cork, through his learning period with Brian Clough, on to his golden era at United and his farewell at Celtic, this is an engrossing look at a man who has been the most talked-about British footballer of his generation. Hardback released April'06. Paperback released October'06.

The Gaffers - Mick McCarthy, Roy Keane and the Team They Built
By Paul Howard Publishers O'Brien Press 2002
01 September 2001, Lansdowne Road: Ireland vs Holland. With the Dutchmen standing firmly between them and the World Cup, the task Ireland faced seemed impossible to fulfil. What followed, however, was completely unexpected. In one of the biggest upsets ever seen in soccer the Irish team beat the formidable Dutch team to gatecrash the party. But for Mick McCarthy and Roy Keane - the chief architects of this extraordinary achievement - there was no warm victory embrace. They shook hands briefly and awkwardly. In a moment that foreshadowed the most extraordinary debacle in Irish sporting history, the manager and his captain behaved like strangers, with no hint of the cameraderie said to exist in the team. Paul Howard examines the complex and explosive dynamic between the two men who brought the Irish team to the World Cup, but whose relationship could not endure to the final round. He talks to the players, the management team and the fans, and raises serious questions about the FAI and its handling of the situation.
