An interesting journey through Spanish football,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Roja: A Journey Through Spanish Football (Kindle Edition)
I read this whilst on a recent trip to Valencia, in keeping with the Spanish theme of the weekend.
The writer does a great job describing the very British influenced birth of football in Spain, to the modern dominance of international football by the national team, via the influence the civil war had on some of the clubs. There are also interesting stories about some of the most influential players on La Liga over the years, both domestic and foreign.
If like me you enjoy the large amount of spanish football shown by sky sports, then this is a good read to see how it all started, and learn that it was not an easy journey from essentially poverty and humbling footballing lessons, to the pinnacle of the game where spanish football sits now.
