Product Description

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 "The Don Uncovered... Intriguing insight into England's enigmatic coach... A thought-provoking, impeccably researched book on an enigmatic subject" FourFourTwo "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 "Meticulously researched" -- Brian Viner Independent "Marcotti has an unrivalled network of contacts, and writes with authority and style... an intriguing portrait" -- Liam Doyle The Bookseller --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

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.
