5.0 out of 5 stars Thoroughly enjoyable read
Great book following the life of one if Rangers best loved players. Frank and full of humour, giving a good insight into Fernando and his exploits in his career as a young lad in Limburg, taking him to the likes of Fortuna, Rangers and Zenit. A top book from a top man and a top player. Good luck Fernando with your latest battle. Your Fighting Spirit will win through

1.0 out of 5 stars You were not a nice man then and you were not a nice man ...
How awful you were to your wife Graceilla and your summary of the relationship with her reflects the real Fernando..... You were not a nice man then and you were not a nice man when you wrote the book. I do hope you recover and wish you no ill will.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent stuff, 25 May 2014
This review is from: Fighting Spirit: The Autobiography of Fernando Ricksen (Hardcover)
This is a gripping, thrilling and very funny book from the former Fortuna Sittard, AZ, Rangers, Zenit and Netherlands player who has well and truly lived life to the fullest.

Thoroughly recommend it for anybody. His stories are remarkable and the writing style is brilliant. Even if you aren't a football fan, this is a brilliant read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely fighting spirit, 3 Jan. 2015

Best book I have read in 2015. Seriously this is a proper biography, not candy flavoured and I never upset anyone. Fernando tells it how it was and leaves nothing out for the book. His travels and torment masks this one of the best players to play for Glasgow Rangers, shows a great regard for Dick Advocaat. Hope he has a great life

5.0 out of 5 stars Insight with sheer honesty, 26 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Enjoyed reading Fernando's words. Admire his pride and true Fighting Spirit. What a very eventful life so far in his 37 years and he has the guts to admit his errors, which we are all guilty of making but seldom admit, never mind publicise! I'm glad you graced Scotland with your determined talent and presence and regret that the press gave you such a hard time. I wish Fernando the very best of health and good luck with the fight against MND - hope you prove the medics wrong and live to see your gorgeous wee daughter grow.

This is a straight-talking book from a man who doesn't deserve this cruel illness (MND).Saw him at his benefit match art Ibrox and made a personal promise that as long as Nando fights his MND I shall fight my MS with equal doses of Fighting Spirit.
