Kevin Keegan is an English former footballer who played for several clubs including Liverpool where he won three Football League Division One titles, two UEFA Cups, an FA Cup and a European Cup. He went on to become a club manager, winning promotion as champions in his first full season at all three clubs he managed. He also managed the England national football team. Played in English clubs Scunthorpe, Liverpool, Southampton, Newcastle, German club Hamburger SV, the club "Tigers" (Malaysia). In the years 1972-1982 had 63 caps for England. In the 1970's - early 1980's in England there was no more revered player than Kevin Keegan. And this despite the fact that the manner of the game, he was noticeably different from the typical English style, when the striker penetrates defenses an opponent like a battering ram. "Classic" English striker was, for example, t-but rather straightforward, Sir Geoff Hurst, hero of the final match of World Cup 1966. And Kevin Keegan featured perfected, "South American" technique, plastic ball control, graceful and relaxed stroke rival. But at the same time, now as a true English striker, he skillfully played head. With a slight growth - 171 cm - he was able to get a jump ball, ahead of tall defenders, and a severe blow to forward it to the grid. But his game in the air, featured a special beauty: its many goals he scored, getting the ball in a spectacular level flight, sprawled over the penalty area. Kevin Keegan - one of the best players in Liverpool's all-time. He was born in the village of Armthorpe near the town of Doncaster, near Sheffield and Leeds. Legendary football career began in the fourth division of English club Scunthorpe, where he played with seventeen years. When he was nineteen, Keegan tried in a more eminent Coventry, but surprisingly impression on the leadership of this club is not produced. But in May 1971 he became interested in the coach of Liverpool's Bill Shankly, and as it turned out very soon, buying Keegan was one of the most successful acts in his entire coaching career. Players with world-class technology, able to perfectly keep the ball initially assigned the role of midfielder, organizing the attack. But after a preseason tour of Liverpool in Scandinavia Shankly knew Kiganu no equal in the game with other people's doors. Therefore, his career in the first division of English as part of Liverpool as he immediately started forward, and started brilliantly. For the first time Keegan left the field in the form of red Liverpool in August 1971 in the home match against the club Nottingham Forest. Already in the seventh minute of his partner in attack, John Toshack took the flank almost to the corner flag and handed the ball into the penalty area, and the rookie one-touch sent him past defenders like a bottom corner, revealing account of his goals scored for Liverpool. Already in the second half of Keegan led to yet another goal - he made a great individual pass on the left flank, and at the last moment was brought down defender in the penalty area. Penalties perfectly executed halfback Tommy Smith. As a result, in the debut game for Keegan Liverpool won - 3:1. The following games have confirmed - in the "Liverpool" had a new bright star. In the first eight calendar matches Keegan scored 7 goals. He was a magnificent attacking tandem with John Toshack, and apparently these two players are a stark contrast tall ram Toshack - and a small, fast, elegant Keegan, who instantly became a favorite of fans of Liverpool. However, they loved him not only for the magnificent goals, but also for their dedication and pure British performance - Keegan has quickly become a true leader of Liverpool, able not only to score a goal, but also encourage partners tirelessly scurry across the field from the gate, where he often even helped the defenders to strangers. 1970 were in English football for years brilliant Liverpool, and thanks largely to a magnificent game, Kevin Keegan. Already in 1973, twenty-two soccer first became champion of England. That same year, Liverpool won the UEFA Cup, and became the first English club, who managed in one season and win the national championship and European Cup in the draw. In the final match Liverpool resisted the German Borussia Mönchengladbach. It then dazzled soccer team of Germany Günter Netzer, Rainer Bonhof, Berti Vogts, a year ago have become champions of Europe. But Keegan after rebates Toshack scored two goals, and the total score of the first match was 3:0. And while the return match in Mönchengladbach Liverpool lost - 0:2, UEFA Cup went to the British. Advances Liverpool continued. In 1976 he again won the UEFA Cup, this time beating Belgium's Club Brugge. In the final two matches of two goals chalked up Keegan. The next year, followed by victory in the European Champions Cup: In the final match with a score of 3:1 was defeated that same Borussia Mönchengladbach. And in 1976, and in 1977, Liverpool became the champion of the country. In 1976, Kevin Keegan admitted the best player in England. But both of their "Golden Ball" the best footballer in Europe, as he declared in 1978 and 1979, Kevin Keegan was already being Footballer of the German Hamburg. Initially, the game here he is not very evolved - German championship is markedly different from English stiffness and more high-speed action on the field. But Keegan was able to quickly rebuild - in Hamburg, he was, rather, is not a brilliant performer, and player-organized. But here he soon became a recognized leader of the team that determines all of its game. In 1979 he led Hamburg to victory in the Bundesliga, and to the same club won the Cup in Germany. Keegan himself, in addition to his second "Golden ball" the best footballer in Europe has been named the best player in Germany. When he was thirty, he returned to England, but not in any of the famous clubs, and a modest Southampton. But here, in 1982, Keegan's second time in his career declared the best footballer in England. He was completing his speech at home in Newcastle, were then in the second division. Here Kevin Keegan spent two seasons, and they have stood out because he simply brilliant. To the delight of fans of Newcastle, the great striker seemed to have gotten a second wind. For two seasons he scored 48 goals, and in October 1982 for the first time in his career made poker, scoring 4 goals in the gate "Roterhema. After the 1983-1984 season, the Newcastle United again won the right to speak in the first division, and it was Keegan's latest achievement in English football. For some time he spent in Malaysia, speaking for the capital club, "Tigers." Following the statements for some time cooperated with the TV, and in 1992 he returned to football as a coach. Keegan became the first club Newcastle United. In the 1995-1996 season, the club was close to win the Premier League, ahead of nearest rival Manchester United on 10 points, and yet ultimately lost the advantage, taking second place. Then for a while Keegan headed Fulham. In 1999-2000, a great football player led the England team. It is curious that during his own appearances for the national team, and with the captain's armband, the national team failed to achieve any notable success. The British did not even managed to break into the world championships in 1974 and 1978. In 1982, however, the team participated in the championship, held in Spain, but Keegan has already finished performances and the last time the national team came off the bench in the match against Spain, which ended goalless. Was not too successful for Keegan and the period of his leadership team. The team with great difficulty made its way to the European Championship in 2000, but there is not even able to get out of the group stage. Unsuccessfully started and pick-up games 2002 World Cup. True, the England team finally won their qualifying group in the first place, but Kevin Keegan has previously resigned.

@gurkenjoe, i'm sure that you probably watch him in Hamburger. I just watch a little bit of him in his days in Anfield, do you think that he needs only set for both eras or he was different in Germany and need another one, taking in count that he won two Ballon D'Ors there, i think probably he did two amazing seasons in Germany.

Spoiler: show
