Quatrième de couverture
In Fabio Capello, England have a football manager like no one that has gone before him. With a record of unbroken success at every club he has coached, he commands respect - and gains results. Now Capello faces his greatest challenge yet, a task that he says is his long-cherished dream. To win the World Cup in South Africa in 2010. For Capello, nothing but the best will do. For England, it is win or bust.
In Capello: Portrait of a Winner, Gabriele Marcotti untangles the complex character in whom England have invested their hopes and dreams. He examines Capello's football philosophy, unveils the secrets behind his success, and gets behind the public persona to a man who, while re-writing the record books, remains a mystery. This is not just the story of a remarkable career, but also the life of an extraordinary man.
