Martin O’Neill is one of the most compelling and respected figures in football. His career has taken him from playing for Lisburn Distillery in Northern Ireland to being a key part of the indomitable Brian Clough’s hugely successful Nottingham Forest team that won back-to-back Europeans Cups in 1979 and 1980. As a player O’Neill represented Northern Ireland over sixty times, playing alongside George Best and captaining the side at the 1982 World Cup.
Now, for the first time, Martin O’Neill reflects on one of the most varied and interesting football careers in the British Isles. As a manager, his legendary time in charge of Celtic saw them win seven trophies including three Scottish Premier League titles and the UEFA Cup, and he successfully led both Leicester City and Aston Villa to League Cups in England. With Roy Keane as his assistant manager, he oversaw Ireland reaching the Euros for only the third time in their history.
Written with his trademark honesty and humour, On Days Like These is a brilliantly written account of Martin’s years in football from one of its most respected and astute voices.
