Kanchelskis was one of the stars of the first great side Sir Alex Ferguson built at Old Trafford, the team of warriors, built around Peter Schmeichel, Roy Keane, Mark Hughes and Eric Cantona that won the Double in 1994.He tells the inside story of his departure from Old Trafford the following year that was dogged by persistent accusations it was engineered by the Russian mafia. He reveals why his agent presented Ferguson with a box containing £40,000 and what it was like to be the nearest player to Cantona on the night he leapt into the crowd at Selhurst Park.After leaving Manchester United, Kanchelskis tells what it was like to play alongside Duncan Ferguson at Everton and Gabriel Batistuta at Fiorentina and how in Florence he witnessed a real-life mafia murder. His move to Rangers ensured he would be the only man to score in a Manchester, a Merseyside and a Glasgow derby.After a fall-out with the Rangers manager, Dick Advocaat, he returned to Russia via a spell at Manchester City and in Saudi Arabia. Kanchelskis explains what life was like as a foreigner in Saudi Arabia and how he was playing chess in the desert with a member of the Saudi royal family as a murderous Al-Qaeda attack shot up the centre of Riyadh.With Russia due to be the centre of the football world when hosting next yearâ?Ts World Cup, Kanchelskis examines the sad decline of one of the gameâ?Ts great powers told through his time as a manager in his native land, a story of ignorance and corruption.
