Until the summer of 2003 Jorge Valdano was the world-renowned Sporting Director of the biggest club in football, Real Madrid. An illustrious career saw him play alongside Maradona in the legendary Argentinian World Cup-winning side of 1986, then to play for and eventually manage Real Madrid. Valdano was to transform his quickwit and intelligence on the pitch to other elements of the game: management, motivation, and perhaps most notably as a star columnist and journalist for publications such as El Pais and the Guardian. In Valdano on Football, Miguel Aguilar has collected the best of Valdano's writings on the game, with articles on the genius of Maradona, Cruyff, Pele and Garrincha as well as his views on the 'galacticos' he brought to the Bernabeu: Figo, Zidane and Ronaldo. As an insightful commentator on the modern game Valdano is peerless. Valdano on Football will prove an indispensable companion to the library of every serious football supporter.
