I had the pleasure and privilege of interviewing Everton Football Club’s most successful ever manager, Howard Kendall, at Goodison Park on Thursday.
On behalf of the Everton Former Players’ Foundation, I interviewed Howard, who is quite rightly regarded as a footballing legend, about every aspect of his remarkable career, as well as his new book: ‘Love Affairs and Marriage: My Life in Football‘ (written alongside renowned author James Corbett).
Please watch the video interview below:
Although Howard needs little introduction, it is worth summarising the Everton idol’s achievements. He first joined the Blues from Preston in 1967, and formed one of the most distinguished midfield partnerships ever witnessed in the English game, ‘The Holy Trinity’, alongside Alan Ball and Colin Harvey. In 1970, Howard was part of Everton’s famous 1970 Championship-winning team.
He returned to Goodison as manager in 1981, reviving Everton for the most successful period in their history. He won the First Division title on two occasions (1985 and 1987), the FA Cup in 1984 and the European Cup Winners’ Cup in 1985.
