The late Adrian Doherty is the subject of a new book, Forever Young, by Oliver Kay
The name of Adrian Doherty might not resonate with Manchester United supporters as much as his former team-mate Ryan Giggs, but those who saw him in action believe the one-time youth sensation was every bit as talented – and that his story deserves to be told.
Oliver Kay is the author of Forever Young, a new book about Doherty’s life, one cut tragically short when he slipped into a canal in The Hague. He was just 26 years old.Kay paints a vivid picture of Doherty, the musician, the poet, the footballer, the boy and the man. We caught up with him to find out more about this unique figure… Tony Park, who is a great authority on United at youth-team level, says he was like Ryan Giggs, Andrei Kanchelskis and Cristiano Ronaldo rolled into one.
