Product Description

Publisher: Aurum Press

Author: Andrew Fagan

Drawing from Fagan’s previously unpublished coaching diaries to provide a unique behind-the-scenes look at twenty-five legendary years of football history, this illuminating biography was co-written by Fagan’s grandson and with the full support of the Fagan family. The interviewees for this exciting account read like a "who’s who" of Liverpool’s golden age, including Kenny Dalglish, Alan Hansen, Graeme Souness, and Jan Mølby—just to name a few. From the humble beginnings of his career, through making football history in the 1980s by becoming the first English manager to win the Treble (three trophies in a single season: the League Cup, the League Championship, and the European Cup), to the disaster in his later life that obscured his earlier achievements, this biography celebrates the record of one of football’s least celebrated greats and reveals the inner workings of Liverpool’s golden age.
