9780091935979: Tell Him He's Pele: The Greatest Collection of Humorous Football Quotations Ever!

My parents have always been there for me, ever since I was about seven - David Beckham

For Tony to admit he is an alcoholic took an awful lot of bottle - Ian Wright on Tony Adams

I've been playing in a golf day for a boy seriously injured in a car accident. I had to drive like a lunatic to get here - Ray Houghton, TalkSport football pundit, on why he was late on-air

Reporter: What would you be if you weren't a footballer?

Peter Crouch: A virgin.

I've never been so certain about anything in my life. I want to be a coach. Or a manager. I'm not sure which - Phil Neville

Footballers may not be known for their profound insights, but it seems no one in the game is above a mixed metaphor or confused cliché. From Harry Redknapp to Martin O'Neill, Patrice Evra to Jason McAteer, see the funny side of the beautiful game with this hilarious collection of verbal own goals. Packed full of hilarious quotes, quips and misfires from the biggest names in football, Tell Him He's Pele is a must for everyone with a sense of humour.

Review:

"An essential work whose previous offerings have entered the lore and language of the game." --"Simon Barnes, The Times"

About the Author:

When not skulking around football grounds and press conferences in search of funny quotes, Phil Shaw is a freelance sports writer with 30 years' experience on national newspapers. He reports on football for the Daily Telegraph, Guardian, Independent and Scotland on Sunday, having previously written for the Observer and Time Out. He has also compiled The Book of Football Quotations since its first edition in 1984, originally in collaboration with Peter Ball. Phil lives in Staffordshire with his wife Julie, tons of old vinyl and an unhealthy amount of Leeds United memorabilia.
