Rejected by every big club he approached, when Roy Keane was finally given a chance at Nottingham Forest by Brian Clough he seized it and has never let go. As the inspirational captain of most famous football club in the world, he's been the driving force behind Manchester United's unprecedented run of success that includes back to back double, the the treble and the World Club Championship. In a team of world class players Keane’s influence can’t be overstated. In 1994, he travelled to the World Cup in America where as a young player in an experienced team his domination of the midfield helped Jack Charlton’s Ireland beat finalists Italy. Now captain of the national side, Keane is Irish hero, his skill, intelligence and fierce determination proving crucial to the team's qualification for the 2002 World Cup finals. But his passion has sometimes given rise to the wrong kind of headlines. His unflagging commitment to winning has led to confrontation on the pitch and controversy off it. From a Cork childhood to Japan and Korea, from the Premiership to the Champions League, this the story of football’s fiercest competitor - from the man himself.
