Jack Charlton

Gerry's guest this week is Jack Charlton - who led Ireland to its first World Cup Finals.

At a time when our national soccer team is without a manager, Jack looks back at the glory days of the early 90s.

He describes the problems of managing some of Ireland's greatest sporting talent - such as Roy Keane and Paul McGrath - and, for the first time, talks his own relationship with the late George Best. He also explains how he has become not just an "honorary Irishman" - but a fully-accredited citizen of this country.
