"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
