Product Description

Publisher: Sphere

Author: Barney Ronay

This book traces the remarkable journey of the football gaffer, from his humble beginnings as club secretary, to his modern incarnation – the man we all recognise, venting his spleen at the ref, or having a huff at a post-match press conference. THE MANAGER takes the reader beyond the well-worn anecdotes, deeper into the stories of football’s top men and the world they inhabit. Barney Ronay asks the important questions about these compelling characters – Where did they come from? Why are they so miserable? Where do they get their suits? (pb)
