More About This Title The Beautiful Game


"What matters above all is that the game should be played in the right spirit."  —Sir Matt Busby

A soccer match is never short of commentators, but only those with a real passion for the game, who know it inside-out, can offer truly wise and encouraging words. The book collects quotations from legendary players, managers, trainers, and officials, painting an inspirational portrait of the highs and lows, glorious victories, and agonizing defeats, of the most popular sport on the planet.


Rory Callan is the author of several soccer books, including biographies of Steven Gerrard, Rio Ferdinand, Wayne Rooney, and Theo Walcott.
