Keith Alexander was one of TWO black managers left in the football league.

Richard informs me that the other is former England player Paul Ince, “who is currently unemployed”.

  1. The England team wore the black armband in their friendly against Egypt, he was a respected man through out his career and was supposed to be one of the few sincere coached who truly loved the art of football. He will be sorely missed_no one can fill The Alexander The Great’s shoes

    RIP
