Bobby Robson: More Than A Manager trailer: A fond look back on a football legend
It somehow seems fitting (and purely coincidental of course) that the same day Arsène Wenger announces his departure from Arsenal after 22 years, the first trailer for a documentary about another legend is released. Bobby Robson: More Than A Manager looks back on the career and impact the great man had on the game not only on these shores, but also on the international stage.
He still remains England's most successful manager after Sir Alf Ramsey, bringing England to the quarter finals of the 1986 Mexican World Cup - which featured the infamous hand of God incident - and then losing on penalties to Germany in the semi-final of Italia 90. But there was much more to him than that as you will see when you take a look at the trailer for Bobby Robson: More Than A Manager which will give you a flavour of what's in store.
Covering a career that saw some of the greatest moments in footballing history; the hand of God, Gazza’s tears, England’s greatest World Cup abroad, titles in Europe’s top leagues, European triumph with Ipswich Town and a Barcelona treble, this heartfelt and personal film is led by the intimate recollections of Sir Bobby Robson himself.
During an extraordinary career, in which Robson overcame the most extreme challenges, including battles with cancer, his journey came full circle when he returned to save his beloved Newcastle.
Gabriel Clarke (yes, the wiry looking ITV football journalist) and Torquil Jones direct, with a host of famous names contributing including Alex Ferguson, Jose Mourinho, Pep Guardiola, Ronaldo, Paul Gascoigne, Alan Shearer, Gary Lineker, and Terry Butcher.
Bobby Robson: More Than A Manager will appear in select UK cinemas from 31st May
