Description

Law was European footballer of the year in 1964 and went on to win 55 caps for Scotland. Many of these were titanic clashes with the Auld Enemy, England, including the now legendary 3-2 defeat of the then World Cup-holders at Wembley in 1967. THE KING tells the story of an Aberdeen boy who rose to the very pinnacle of footballing excellence from humble beginnings. Packed with hilarious and revelatory behind-the-scenes stories and peopled by Law's fellow football legends like Matt Busby, George Best and Jimmy Greaves, Denis Law's book takes the reader back to the game's glory days. In so doing, we learn why, to his legions of fans, Denis Law was, and will forever remain, the King.

Author Biography

Denis Law was born in Aberdeen in 1940 and began his football career in Huddersfield. Here he learned the finer arts of the game under the expert tutelage of two shrewd Scottish managers, Andy Beattie and the legendary Bill Shankly, before joining a third Scot, Les McDowall at Manchester City. A move to Italy seemed to offer not only financial security but a place amongst the gods of football, though it quickly turned sour. Another move back to England and yet another Scottish manager, Matt Busby, teamed Denis with the likes of George Best and Bobby Charlton at Manchester United. Law became the King of the United faithful at Old Trafford, though he ended his career with another year at Manchester City. He and his family still live in Manchester.
