Alan Hansen's account on Hillsborough

Postby raja » Tue Jun 29, 2010 10:25 am

I have been doing a bit of reading up on Alan Hansen, former Scotland international, Liverpool player and well-known defender in his time.
Came across this piece which I found very poignant. It is somewhat long but gives us a very good peek into the mind of the man.
I like and respect this guy a lot.

A very interesting account . Thanks for posting.

I've never really liked Hansen, I find him a bit arrogant (in person not on tv); but he reveals a more gentle side to his character here.
