[Free eBook] The Football Men: Up Close with the Giants of the Modern Game (Audio Download): Amazon.co.uk: Simon Kuper, Colin Mace, Audible Studios: Audible AudiobooksAuthor Simon Kuper – Carcier.co

The great footballers and coaches are rarely glimpsed up close They shield themselves from the tabloids, hide their personalities behind professionalism, and in the words of the cliche, do their talking on the pitch This book gets up close to them The Football Men is not a series of celebrity profiles, and it doesn t attempt to unearth secrets in the players private lives Rather, it portrays these men as three dimensional human beings It describes their upbringings, the football cultures they grew up in, the way they play, and the baggage that they bring to their relationships at work This multimillion pound, multinational world is mostly inhabited by ordinary men The profiles in this book are sometimes funny, but never breathless or sensational Some of the profiles in this book are based on interviews others are the results of time the author spent with that person sometimes the profile is a story of a country All are fascinating and shed light on their subject to reveal things you wouldn t expect From one of the great sports writers of our time, this is a penetrating and surprising collection of articles on the figures that have defined the modern sporting world
