Review

"Marcotti, an Italian football writer living in London, was born to write this book. He researched it in terrifying detail, like an American biography. One conclusion about Capello: "No grudges are ever held and you are only ever judged on performance." Financial Times 20081129 "The Don Uncovered... Intriguing insight into England's enigmatic coach... A thought-provoking, impeccably researched book on an enigmatic subject" FourFourTwo 20081001 "This is a formidable piece of journalism mixing library research, expansive football knowledge, dozens of interviews with Capello eyewitnesses and even a few titbits from the man himself. Marcotti goes beyond the superficial public assumptions about his subject... this is a serious book about a serious chap... a detailed and lucid analysis" -- Pete May Football 365 20081126 "Meticulously researched" -- Brian Viner Independent 20090331 "Marcotti has an unrivalled network of contacts, and writes with authority and style... an intriguing portrait" -- Liam Doyle The Bookseller 20080516

Product Description

Fabio Capello is a born winner. As a midfielder with Roma, Juventus and Milan, he won four Italian league championships and two cups, and played for his country 32 times, scoring a goal at Wembley in 1973 in Italy's first ever win in England. As a manager, Capello's fierce determination has seen him win championships with every club he has taken charge of, from Milan in the early 1990s to Real Madrid with David Beckham in 2007.Now he faces his greatest challenge yet: to restore England to the top of world football and take them to the World Cup in South Africa in 2010 - and win. For Capello, nothing less than the best will do.



In Capello: Portrait of a Winner, award-winning writer Gabriele Marcotti travels from Capello's early days in Italy to the first months in his new job to tell the story of the man behind the steely glare. Capello has made more than a few enemies over the years, and Marcotti has talked to them all, as well as his closest associates. No-one has ever got this close to Capello before, and this is the story not just of a remarkable career, but of the life of a truly extraordinary man.

Marcotti paints a behind-the-scene look into Capello's time at his clubs, highlighting the difficulties even he had to work with in Madrid and Roma. He avoids the trap of most football books, which are only a litany of matches. Instead, he weaves in key matches to highlight Capello's challenges. The book has excerpts from many of Capello's old interviews, but you wonder if there's fresh material that he wasn't able to print. Could do with more a review of the tactical decisions Capello made - afterall the Italian has a fair reputation on that front. Too bad, this was written before the end of Capello's time as coach of England.
