Book Description

23 Jun 2014
He has spent 101 days in a brutal Singapore jail after being accused of match-fixing, survived after his heart stopped for three minutes during a match, had his shoes nailed to the floor by the Crazy Gang and stolen a penguin and kept it in his bath while playing in New Zealand... he is German goalkeeper Lutz Pfannenstiel and this is his incredible story.

Described by Four Four Two magazine as the craziest man in football , Pfannenstiel is the only man to play pro football in all six FIFA confederations. Having turned down Bayern Munich at the age of 19 he embarked on a globetrotting football adventure that took him from Malaysia to New Zealand via Wimbledon, Nottingham Forest and Bradford Park Avenue and from Albania to Brazil.

But the stats 400 games for more than 25 clubs on six continents don't begin to tell the extraordinary story. He has been a techno DJ in Kuala Lumpur, he has lived in an igloo to raise awareness for global warming, he has been goalkeeper coach for both Cuba and Namibia (whose keeper was deaf) and persuaded Maradona to play a charity match in Antarctica! And now he's on the BBC...

A massive bestseller in his native Germany, The Unstoppable Keeper is quite simply the most extraordinary footballer autobiography you will ever read!
