The autobiography of Manchester United legend Gordon Hill is now available for order.
“Merlin” is released in July and has been described by Telegraph journalist Henry Winter as ‘A great insight into one of Manchester United’s and England’s great characters’.
On his official website, Hill said, “I was overwhelmed by the kind words of well wishers who were keen to tell me that they’d either pretended to be me in the park or that I was their favourite player. You don’t know how much that means to me – Tommy Docherty, Sammy McIlroy and Lou Macari all said words about me that will be at the front of my book.
“To me, those words are worth the same as anything I ever won, because they were the honest words spoken by people I regard as high as anybody to have been in the game. They know football, and for them to have spoken so honestly and well of me means so much. I was only at Manchester United for 2 and a half years of my life but for me to be remembered for what I did there is a real honour.”
Hill’s career at Old Trafford lasted just two and a half years, in which time he scored a staggering 51 goals from the left wing – with a goal average similar to that of Cristiano Ronaldo’s in his own time at Old Trafford.
The book will be available in major high street book stores and Gordon plans to attend at least one signing in the UK – details will follow on his Twitter account for the book here – but in order to ensure you don’t miss out on getting a signed copy then head over to his website ahead of the official launch.
