About the film

Covering a career that saw some of the greatest moments in footballing history, including the hand of God, Gazza’s tears, England’s greatest World Cup abroad to titles in Europe’s top leagues and a Barcelona treble, this heartfelt and personal film is led by the intimate recollections of Sir Bobby Robson himself.

Bobby Robson: More Than A Manager features an A-list cast, with Alan Shearer, Paul Gascoigne, Jose Mourinho, Pep Guardiola, Ronaldo, Gary Lineker and Sir Alex Ferguson all speaking about their personal memories.

An intimate portrait of one of sport’s most inspirational and influential figures, the film will also feature never-before-seen archive footage and emotional testimony from Lady Elsie Robson.

During an extraordinary career, in which Robson overcame the most extreme challenges, including battles with cancer, his journey came full circle when he returned to ‘save’ the Magpies.
