On Days Like These
Martin O’Neill has had one of the most incredible careers in football – winning European Cups, captaining his country at a world cup, and decades as a hugely successful manager. On Days Like These tells his fascinating story in his own words for the first time.
'Entertaining . . . An extraordinary career' – The Guardian
A key part of Brian Clough’s legendary Nottingham Forest team in the ‘70s and early ‘80s, Martin also represented Northern Ireland more than 60 times and led them at the 1982 World Cup. As a manager he took Leicester City to two League Cups, Celtic to seven trophies, and the Republic of Ireland to the European Championship in 2016.
Martin tells of his exhilarating highs and painful lows; from the joys of winning trophies and promotion to making the difficult decision to retire as a player, boardroom drama, relegation scraps and being fired. Written with his trademark forthright honesty and humour, On Days Like These is a must-read for any fan of the beautiful game.
