Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 009949955X, Mass Market Paperback)Paul McGrath is Ireland’s best loved sportsman and also its least understood. An iconic football presence during a professional career stretching over 14 years, he played for his country in the European Championship finals of 1988 and the World Cup finals of 1990 and 1994. But, behind the implied glamour of life in the employ of great English clubs like Manchester United and Aston Villa, McGrath wrestled with a range of destructive emotions that made his success in the game little short of miraculous.
It is not just a football story. It is an extraordinary human story that is certain to surprise with its candour.
It may well be the most candid sports book ever written.
