Britain s most respected sportswriter takes on the greatest football manager of all time
Patrick Barclay is Chief Football Commentator for The Times and one of the most respected journalists in the business. During a career spanning eight World Cups he has been the chief football writer for each of the four quality newspaper groups in England- The Times, Guardian-Observer, Telegraph, and Independent. His first book, Mourinho- Anatomy of a Winner was published to acclaim in 2005.
"Barclay has written a wonderful book. Football -- Bloody Hell! captures the contradictions and battery-acid sourness of this complex personality just as eloquently as it elucidates his genius." Irish Independent "Firm but fair. A book in which thoroughness of research, richness of detail and proper celebration of achievement are never allowed to occlude the author's unsentimental view of his compatriot." -- Richard Williams Guardian "Book of the Week" Guardian
