A Tesco Manager In Manchester Could Be Getting A Call From An Angry Corkman

A Tesco Manager In Manchester Could Be Getting A Call From An Angry Corkman
By PJ Browne Updated

Roy Keane's new autobiography 'The Second Half' is not due for official release until Thursday but a Tesco in the Manchester suburb of Burnage (the birthplace of Liam and Noel Gallagher) decided that it could not wait to unleash the much-awaited publication on the world.

One Manchester journalist found out that the book was on sale, told others and it has since sold out.

So, that's why you're seeing extracts from the book all over the internet today featuring revelations like Keane headbutting Peter Schmeichel and what he said to Alex Ferguson before leaving Man Utd.

I'd be very worried if I was the manager of a certain Tesco in Manchester about the possibility of a Corkman with a two-tone beard turning up sometime soon.

In a brief statement Tesco have since confirmed that the store in Burnage was the source of the leak.

A copy of Roy Keane's book was sold in error at our Burnage store. Colleagues are currently investigating how this happened.

That statement would suggest that only one book was sold but given the number of journalists tweeting quotes from the book, that is kind of hard to believe.
