Guttman was the first superstar football coach.  In just over sixteen years he performed the single greatest comeback in football history – in 1961 as coach of Benefica he had lifted the European Cup, a feat he repeated the following year.  This book tells his remarkable story, beginning with his hidden months in a Budapest attic, his escape from a slave labour camp,  and the loss of his father, sister and many family members at the hands of the Nazis.

David Bolchover has previously written a football bestseller, 90 Minute Manager, and has wide experience as a broadcaster and writer.
