'If It's Football, It's Vital'

'Pool Star O'Keefe Brings Book Out

Former 'Pool star Eamonn O'Keefe finally has his autobiography out!

We will be having an exclusive interview with Eamonn following the release of his book, and that is to appear this week sometime.



The book`s title says it all! I Only Wanted to Play Football - Eamonn O`Keefe`s memoir - tells it all! From one of six children in a North Manchester family to a successful professional footballer who played around the world, this book lays bare all that goes into the game.



Eamonn O`Keefe recalls in his humorous memoir his notable football career in England, Ireland and Saudi Arabia, moving from club to club. His exploits include being arrested after a practical joke badly backfires, and he was told by a Saudi prince that the prince was in love with him, whereupon O`Keefe quickly fled back to the "safety of England."



"I first met Eamonn when we played together for the Republic of Ireland. His football exploits around the world were common knowledge within football circles - but were not well-documented publicly. It should be a great read!" - Frank Stapleton, ex-Manchester United and Republic of Ireland International player



"Many of today`s footballers live their lives like Hollywood film stars. The story of Eamonn O'Keefe`s life could be the script of a Hollywood film but there would be only one problem - nobody would believe it was a true story! I can assure you it is. You couldn't make it up if you tried!" - Howard Wilkinson, Ex-England manager and current chairman of the League Managers Association
