Blood, Sweat and Mcateer : A Footballer's Story Paperback
Former Republic of Ireland and Premier League footballer Jason McAteer shares the highs and lows from his long and colourful career ... The fighting McAteers: that's how the McAteer family of title-winning boxers were known throughout Birkenhead, across the Mersey from Liverpool.
But for eleven-year-old Jason McAteer, growing up in the shadow of Liverpool FC, football became the dream.
After signing with Bolton Wanderers at the age of twenty-one, the call to the international scene followed with the Republic of Ireland and, soon after, to his beloved Liverpool FC.
The dream had become a reality. From his time with the Irish World Cup squad of 1994 to those tumultuous days in Saipan in 2002; on through his decision to leave Liverpool for Blackburn Rovers; his move to Sunderland, and the depression he fell into after finishing his professional career with Tranmere Rovers, Jason McAteer looks back with characteristic honesty and humour on his life - the jokes, the matches, and the personalities. This is the real Jason McAteer: a little bit bruised, a little bit battered.
But still fighting.
