5 Books on Sports I read in 2015

Other than reading books, I am passionate about football (for americans: it’s soccer) and there isn’t a year I do not find books to read and satisfy by obsessiveness of the game. Here are 5 books worth take a look:

Pep Confidential: The Inside Story of Pep Guardiola’s First Season at Bayern Munich by Martí Perarnau

This a well written insight on football coaching genius.

My Rating 4 out of 5

The Nowhere Man by Michael Calvin

The book shines rays on the hidden world of one of the most important roles in the game of football, Scouts.

My Rating 4 out of 5

Another Bloody Saturday by Mat Guy

This is a book celebrating all that is great with the game of football, as seen through the eyes of clubs and fans rarely bothered by satellite television cameras and the riches of the elite game, a vibrant world of humour, warmth and friendship worth far more than all the wealth of the Premier League.

My Rating 4 out of 5

Pep Guardiola by Guile Balague

One more on the same guy? I know. This one is different. It’s during his time at Barcelona and it is a proper biography.

My Rating 4 out of 5

Brian Clough The Autobiography by Brain Clough

Another famous manager of 70s. Brian Clough won two UEFA Champions League with Nottingham Forest.

My Rating 3 out of 5

  1. It’s great when two passions meet – like reading and foot ball for you. All I know of football is what my 10 yr old tells me and that’s quite enough :-). Sports and books for me would probably mean a Zoya Factor by Anuja Chauhan.


Any thoughts?
