Pick your favourite Roy Keane moment. The header against
Juventus? The tunnel clash with Patrick
Vieira? The bone-crunching challenge on Marc Overmars at Lansdowne Road? All worthy choices that complement his
aggressive, combative warrior persona. But
that was Version 2.0.
Keane: Origins delves into the inexplicable story
of what came before. Focusing on the
period between 1988 and 1993, it charts Keane's journey from an economically-ravaged
Cork to a spectacular three-season spell under Brian Clough at Nottingham
Forest via a memorable stint on a government-funded training scheme and brief
spell in the League of Ireland.
With contributions from former team-mates, coaches and those
who knew him best, Keane: Origins examines a largely over-looked,
under-appreciated and unheralded time in the legendary midfielder's career that
set him on the path to immortality.
