About Kevin Keegan

Kevin Keegan was a European Cup winner with Liverpool, twice European Player of the Year, and one of the few to have both captained and managed England.

He started as a teenager with Scunthorpe (having had a trial and been rejected by the Sky Blues), but his talent as a creative midfielder led to a quick move to Bill Shankly's Liverpool. Kevin quickly established his place, moving to striker and a fruitful partnership with John Toshack. He went on to win three First Division titles and numerous trophies.

After 323 appearances and 100 goals Kevin left Merseyside to become Germany’s highest paid player, winning the Bundesliga with Hamburg. At the same time he was appointed England captain, a role he held until after the team were eliminated from the 1982 World Cup. He returned to the UK to play for Southampton and Newcastle United, helping the latter to promotion in his second season.

After an eight year break Kevin returned to Newcastle as manager, and once again steered the club into the top tier of the domestic game. Admired for his attacking tactics, he took them to second place in the Premier League in a memorably close title race in the 1995/96 season. Then, after a spell at Fulham, he took charge of the national side - a hugely popular choice with press and public. However, his time in charge ended after the team’s loss to Germany in the final game at the old Wembley.

After a spell at Manchester City and a final return to Newcastle, Kevin retired from management - but continues to be involved in the game with academies, and as a pundit. He speaks about his eventful career, the lessons he’s learned, and the value of looking forward instead of reflecting on past glories.
