Saha also talks bout how much a Footballer needs their family with a chapter with the views from his wife.
Nice comments from other top players such as Zidane,Henry and Patrice Evra.
The book is written with great intelligence and is a must for any Footy fan.
On the plus side, there is SOME interesting stuff, and the odd fascinating insight. Louis Saha seems to be a genuinely decent guy, too. But I found Paolo Di Canio's book a far better read for a footy fan.
