Product Description


"From his birth in Madrid through to his winning
goal in Euro 2008 and beyond, Torres goes behind the
scenes of his life and career to examine what makes
the golden boy of football tick as well as kick. He went
from a little boy in Fuenlabrada, playing football with
his friends on a cement pitch, to Anfield, the ground of
arguably the best football club in England.

Renowned sports journalist Luca Caioli has exclusively
interviewed figures from Torres' life - from Rafa
Benítez to Vincente del Bosque, Pepe Reina to Kenny
Dalglish, Fabio Capello to Fernando Torres himself.

This unrivalled material will give the real untold
story of how The Kid became The King of Europe." --Selby Times, August 6, 2009.

Format: Paperback
This is a nice book for Liverpool fans in general, will give you a little bit of background on Fernando and also details about some of his early games as a Liverpool fc player, But If your looking for details on Fernando off the pitch and an insight into his life then this will be a disapointment, the book tends to touch on subjects on a breif basis and seems to quickly brush over it, Certainly worth a read but nothing to rave about
