It's been reported that Kevin Keegan, who left his post as Newcastle United manager in September 2008, has been awarded £2m after it was found that he was constructively dismissed (on the Guardian website).
Keegan made headlines in January 2008 when he returned to manage Newcastle United for a second time. His first stint as manager ran from 1992 to 1997, during which time he took Newcastle United back into the top division of English football and the team finished second in the Premier League to Manchester United in 1995/96. Newcastle led the table for most of the season and only faded after Keegan famously let the pressure get the better of him (on the YouTube website).
An independent arbitration panel found that Kevin Keegan had been constructively dismissed [a term explained in the XpertHR employment glossary, subscription required] when control of the transfer of players was taken away from him and handed to the director of football, Dennis Wise. Keegan had originally sought £25m, much of this sum for "stigma damages" claimed on the basis that he would find it impossible to get another management job in football.
