Here is a new unauthorized biography, published for the World Cup, of one of the most celebrated stars in English football, based on exclusive interviews and unique research.
While charting his meteoric rise to fame, this classic football story also explores the man and his beliefs. From his days as a mid-field player for Tottenham Hotspur and England to his management of FA cup finalists Chelsea and then England, Glenn Hoddle is a hero of our time. While much has been written about his professional life, little has been written, until now, about the private man and what drives him.
In this popular and accessible biography, published for the 1998 World Cup, Phil Shirley looks at the professional player, the manager, the father figure and the devout believer who wants to lead England to international glory.
