Publisher's Summary

The exclusive behind-the-scenes story of the Mauricio Pochettino revolution at Spurs, told in his own words.

Since joining the club in 2014, Mauricio Pochettino has transformed Tottenham from underachievers into genuine title contenders. In the process, he has marked himself out as one of the best young managers in the world, more than holding his own against the Premier League's established heavyweights. He has done so by promoting an attacking, pressing style of football and by nurturing homegrown talent, fully endearing himself to the Spurs' faithful along the way.

Guillem Balagué was granted unprecedented access to Pochettino and his backroom staff for the duration of the 2016-17 season, and he has therefore been able to draw on extensive interview material with Pochettino, his family, his closest assistants, players such as Dele Alli and Harry Kane and even a very rare conversation with Daniel Levy to tell the manager's story in his own words.

From Pochettino's early years as a player and coach to his transformation of Tottenham into one of the best teams in England, this audiobook uniquely reveals the inner workings of the man and of his footballing philosophy. It also lays bare what it takes to run a modern-day football team competing at the highest level over the course of a single campaign. The result is the most comprehensive and compelling portrait of a manager and of a club in the Premier League era.

Read by Piers Hampton.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

    "Different to what I expected "

    Really enjoyed the format of this book, and there were some really good clear lessons that I have taken on board from Pochettinos leadership philosophy.

    Story
    "Excellent "

    Once you get past the fact that the narrator has a posh English accent that is nothing like Pochetinos. it's very enjoyable. The narrator actually gets into the soul of Pochetino very well & the occasional mispronunciation that gives away slightly that he probably isn't a football man are minor gripes. II started this in hardback & finished it with the audio book. both were equally satisfying.

    "Dave B"

    A must read for a Tottenham supporter, a true understanding of what happens and the emotions that follow every incident and game that's played. It's amazing what we don't see in the world of football.

    "A great insight into one of the best modern day managers. "

    As a Spurs fan I throughly enjoyed this audiobook. An amazing insight into his personal life, philosophy, match day experiences and relationships with colleagues and players current and from previous teams.

    Story
    "Insight into a dedicated and driven leader"

    Well written first person diary style biography - it really captures the voice of the manager, it feeling true and real - which it is (but isn’t).

    The anecdotes shared are fascinating and reveal the driven and determined nature of this football manager. He comes across as personable and passionate as strong and reflective.

    I would recommend this to all Tottenham fans and sensible bipartisan football fans. You don’t need to be spurs to appreciate the underlying content (Southampton & Espanyol feature strongly) but his comments on games and players are bound to resonate more to fans of those teams than haters.

    "Brave"

    The narrator was a bit cringe worthy at times, but the message was amazing. Poche is a man of honor, a quality lacking at the highest level these days.
