In the 1960’s, Denis Law was the king of Old Trafford. A goal-scoring genius, Law attacked the game (and the occasional opponement) with a dedication and enthusiasm that held his legions of loyal subjects in devoted awe. The deadly triumvirate of Law, George Best and Bobby Charlton swept opposition from its path, and led Manchester United to win the FA Cup in 1963 and League in 1965 and 1967.
THE KING tells the story of an Aberdeen boy who rose from humble beginnings to the very pinnacle of footballing excellence. Packed with hilarious and revelatory behind-the-scenes stories and peopled by Law’s fellow football legends like Matt Busby, George Best and Bill Shankly, Denis Law’s book takes the reader back to the game’s glory days. On the way, we learn why, to his legions of fans, Denis Law was, and will forever remain, the king.
