Ex-England boss Kevin Keegan was ‘visited by dad’s ghost’ in spooky situation

Kevin Keegan was “visited by the ghost of his dad” when he became the England manager.

“The bulbs on the lights popped” twice when Keegan spoke about him in an interview. Sky Sports’ Geoff Shreeves, 58, explained: “I went to interview him.

“We’d set up the cameras and the lights and started the interview when Kevin talked about how his dad, who had passed, would be so proud. The moment he mentioned his dad, all the bulbs on the lights popped.

“We began the interview again, with Kevin repeating the story about his dad. Again, the moment his dad was mentioned, all the lights went again.

“All a bit too spooky, so we moved on.” In his book, ‘Cheers, Geoff! Tales from the Touchline,’ the football reporter also told of a row between Sir Alex Ferguson and his wife Cathy after she bid £17,000 for a signed Eric Cantona top at a charity auction in 2010.

He added: “Suddenly, Alex is out of his seat. ‘What are you doing? I can get one of those every day of the week for nothing.’

“Predictably, she got her way, and even got Cantona to sign it ‘To the REAL boss’.” However, the tale about Keegan’s possible paranormal reunion with his father is certainly the spookiest entry into the iconic Sky Sports reporter’s book.

Keegan was given the reins of the Three Lions, initially on a temporary basis in February 1999. However, he would go on to remain at the England helm for Euro 2000 in Belgium and the Netherlands.

While England did record a very impressive 1-0 win over Germany, the Three Lions failed to make it out of the group stages after losing 3-2 to Portugal and Romania. Keegan would eventually submit his resignation immediately after losing 1-0 to Germany in what was the last ever England match at the old Wembley.
