The Men Who Taught the World How to Beat England at Their Own Game

Rory Smith

The legacy of the English coaches who taught the world how to play football is preserved in the informal word for manager used in Italy, Spain and South America: ‘Mister’. From pioneers such as Fred Pentland and William Garbutt, who helped shape the Italian and Spanish game in the 1920s, to more recent exports, such as Roy Hodgson, this volume traces the history of England’s football missionaries.
