English footballing legend Kevin Keegan will be in Belfast in January to promote his new book, 'My Life In Football'.

The former Liverpool and Newcastle hero will be at the Waterfront Hall on Sunday 13 January to promote the book which details his career that spanned across five decades.

In it, Keegan will discuss key moments during both his playing career and managerial career, including his stints with Liverpool - where he won seven trophies - and Newcastle United.

The two-time Ballon d'Or winner with Hamburg will reveal all in the event, while he also had a highly successful international career having captained England 31 times in 63 caps.

The 67-year old then went into coaching and had spells with Newcastle, Fulham, Manchester City and a brief stint with England.

The book is written with the Guardian and Observer's chief football writer Daniel Taylor, who has twice been named Football Journalist of the Year.

"Kevin Keegan is truly one of the icons of his sport, and has never been afraid to wear his heart on his sleeve," said publisher Robin Harvie.

"This is going to be a fantastic book for all football fans, and we are hugely honoured to be welcoming Kevin to a sports list that includes other sporting greats such as Johan Cruyff, Damon Hill, Mark Webber and Roberto Duran."

Tickets can be purchased either through Ticketmaster or through the Waterfront Hall, and each ticket comes with a signed copy of Keegan's book.
