Refreshingly open and honest
on 10 November 2013
Some footballers write, or more accurately have their autobiography written for them when they really have very little interesting or original to say but Uwe Rosler has lived a life jam packed with incident and emotion.
Growing up in East Germany and falling foul of the Stasi, making his way in the Bundeslega, becoming a folk hero at Manchester City, his brave and successful fight against cancer, learning the managerial ropes in Norway and his current exploits at Brentford culminating in the penalty heartbreak with almost the last kick of last season against Doncaster.
What shines through is his passion, intelligence, honesty and originality of thought. Uwe is certainly one of the new breed of manager and the book provides a fascinating and tightly written account of a life that encompasses so much more than football and still has so much to give.
