Roy Keane: As I See It
The most sought after figure in British sport comes to DVD and VHS this Christmas as Warner Home Video releases the most sensational and revealing football film of the year - Roy Keane: As I See It, to buy and rent on 25 November 2002.
Featuring unprecedented behind-the-scenes access including Roy at home with his family and frank interviews with Roy which demonstrate his trademark tenacity on the pitch, this deeply personal insight into a career dogged by incident but marked by success is compulsory Christmas viewing for anyone interested in football.
THE MEDIA SPOTLIGHT
He's the most controversial and high profile player in British football. As captain and driving force of Manchester United he's the heartbeat of the biggest club in the world, worshipped by his fans and looked up to by his team-mates. This summer, his name was on everyone's lips and he dominated the front and back pages for weeks as his World Cup involvement came to a tempestuous and premature end. Now you can hear him speak openly about this and see the greatest moments of his career exclusively in Roy Keane: As I See It.
MANCHESTER'S MIDFIELD GENERAL
From his early days in Cork through his time at Nottingham Forest under Brian Clough and right up to his present day position as Sir Alex Ferguson's ring-master in the Theatre of Dreams at Old Trafford, this film traces the career of the man who shuns publicity yet can't stay out of the headlines. In candid, never-before-seen interviews Roy reveals his very personal views on other controversial football figures including Sir Alex Ferguson, David Beckham and Mick McCarthy.
He talks openly about representing Ireland and the most notorious incident of all - his clash with Alf Inge Haaland of arch rivals Manchester City. Fellow stars of Manchester United including Ferguson, Beckham, Ryan Giggs and Nicky Butt assess his huge contribution to their collective success and express their loyalty to him as a captain and leader.
THE FAMILY MAN
Away from football, Roy invites us to glimpse his life as a gentle father figure to his young family and the challenges of sheltering them from the public spotlight. He talks of his experiences with the media, most notably following his early return from the 2002 World Cup. This sensational DVD and VHS gives us an insight into the two very different aspects of his life - the confrontational, ultra competitive driving force behind Manchester United's treble winning success on the field, and the quiet family man who has never forgotten his Cork roots.
