From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Brian Kidd, (born 29 May 1949, Collyhurst, Manchester), is an English former professional footballer, who since his retirement has worked as both a coach and manager. Kidd played for Manchester United (1963-1974), Arsenal (1974-1976), Manchester City (1976-1979), Everton (1979-1980), Bolton Wanderers and the Fort Lauderdale Strikers in the NASL. He scored in the European Cup final in 1968, on his 19th birthday.

After management posts at Barrow and Preston North End, he was involved in coaching young players before being brought back to Manchester United as a coach by Alex Ferguson. He helped the club to win the League Cup, the Premier League and FA Cup. He was lured to manage Blackburn Rovers in December 1998, but the club were relegated and Kidd was dismissed on 3 November 1999 after the side performed poorly in Division One. He has subsequently worked as head coach at Leeds United and as England number two coach under Sven-Göran Eriksson.

Kidd was diagnosed with prostate cancer prior to Euro 2004, forcing him to take a break from his duties with England.
