Football in Quotes
Team talk and quips from the stars of soccer
Footballers are renowned for their quips, unguarded remarks and slips-of-the-tongue. Comments and off-the-cuff remarks are often hilarious, frequently nonsensical, and sometimes downright insulting, while some soccer stars can be remarkably lucid and inspirational when discussing the 'beautiful game'.
It's not just the players who have an amusing or insightful turn of phrase: managers and coaches notoriously pull no punches when it comes to team-talk and criticism of their players' activities on and off the pitch.
This book celebrates the quotes and verbal gaffs from the world of soccer with almost 150 photographs selected from the vast archives of Mirrorpix.
