Kevin Keegan Career Highlights
In an illustrious career, Keegan made 321 appearances for Liverpool FC, and both captained and managed the national side. He also felt the lure of Hamburg and Newcastle (on more than one occasion), and gave a generation of men their hairstyle. Kevin entertains and inspires any audience, not just football fans
After 323 appearances and 100 goals, Kevin Keegan 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 ejected from the 1982 World Cup.
Back To Blighty
Keegan returned to the UK to play for Southampton FC and Newcastle United. Helping the latter to promotion in his second season. After an eight year break, Keegan returned to Newcastle as manager. Once again steering 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.
Then, after a spell at Fulham FC, Keegan took charge of the national side; a hugely popular choice with press and public. However, his time in charge ended harshly with a media backlash after the team’s loss to Germany in a World Cup qualifier.
Kevin Keegan In Retirement
After a spell at Manchester City and a final return to Newcastle, Keegan retired from management but continues to be involved in the game with academies, and as a pundit.
He speaks about his eventful career and the lessons he has learned, and the value of looking forward instead of reflecting on past glories.
“Kevin was so engaging and really set the tone for what was a marvellous evening. He had time for all and seemed to enjoy meeting everyone as much as they clearly enjoyed meeting someone who to many has been a hero to them.”
