On January 13th ITV will begin transmitting a three part drama on the life of Bobby Moore and his first wife, Tina. Following the popular dramatic biography of the late Cilla Black, the drama department have turned their attention to another iconic figure of the 1960’s. The last man Englishman to lift the Jules Rimet Trophy.
Bobby Moore led England to glory when winning the 1966 World Cup at Germany.
His lifelong friend Matt Lorenzo made an excellent factual film about Bobby’s life. He secured interviews with both his wives, with Pele, Wayne Rooney and many others who pay tribute to the classy footballer and man who I got to know in his later years.
I prefer fact to fiction and the Bobby Moore movie produced by Matt Lorenzo is available on DVD. It’s a must buy for any football fan, regardless of your age.
In this 10 minute interview I talk with Matt Lorenzo about his friend Bobby Moore and ask why he was never hired by the Football Association or to manage a big football club.
