White Storm by Phil Ball

Book Description

Within the trophy room at the Bernabeu, the spoils of a century's achievements provide indisputable evidence of football's conquistadores rubbing the world's noses in the dirt. They include twenty-nine league titles, nine European Cups, seventeen Spanish Cups, two UEFA Cups and three World Club Championship titles. The story of Real Madrid is, however, much more than the mere sum of its achievements. The club has always attracted the biggest names in the game - the type of player more recently referred to by Los Merengues as 'galactico'. And for every Figo, Zidane, Ronaldo or Beckham, there is a legend from the past. White Storm charts the history of the club from its foundations to the golden period of Di Stefano and Puskas, through the 'hippy years' to the modern embodiment of Madridismo - Raul. It ends with an analysis of the Beckham impact, the disintegration of the Florentino Perez regime and a look at what the future might hold for the world's most famous club.
