Illustrated with B&W photographs. From the cover: “George Raynor has become a legend in the world of Association Football. For this tough-as-teak Yorkshireman has risen from being a poor boy unable to afford even a pair of gym shoes to become the world’s greatest coach, the man who has put Sweden among the medals in two of the most exacting and important sporting competitions — the Olympic Games and the World Cup — and received one of the major decorations from the King of Sweden. He has toured the footballing world, spreading the gospel of all that is best in the game. He took the game to Iraq, where there wasn’t even a Football Association. In a few short months he saved a famous Italian club from the indignity of relegation… and in the process saw at first hand the corruption and the fanaticism of football in Italy.”
