Foot, Le by Christov Ruhn

Book Description

This entertaining and informative anthology charts the path to glory of French football to World Cup victory. Le Foot is a success story. Offering a unique behind-the-scenes view, it will reveal how France went from being a second-rate to a major footballing superpower in little more than twenty years. Footballers, coaches, eminent writers and journalists describe the way it was to the way it is. Le Foot says it all: the scandals of greedy moneymen, the ever-talented players who failed under pressure, the exemplary youth academy of Auxerre, as well as the winning of the 1984 European Championship and the magic of the 1998 World Cup success. It tells the story of how Cantona became king of England and Zidane, a Franco-Algerian, the world's best player, of how Platini conquered the Calcio and why Ginola did not make it to the World Cup. Today millions of people love and respect French football: Le Foot will give them the inside stories that made the legend. The many eminent contributors include Salman Rushdie, Irvine Welsh and French legend Michel Platini.
