I Am The Secret Footballer: Lifting the Lid on the Beautiful Game

by Anon (Author), TheSecretFootballer (Author)


Who is The Secret Footballer? His identity is jealously guarded by just a handful of people. But whoever he is - and whoever he plays for - he is always honest, always fearless and always opinionated. This genuine story of one player's career is a unique combination of considered analysis, tell-all gossip and the joys and frustrations that only someone who plays the game at the highest levels can really feel. From the realities of racism and depression, to the pleasure and pain of sky-high salaries and the scandals of Christmas parties, The Secret Footballer reveals everything you need to know about the beautiful (and not so beautiful) game.
