Product description

When Arsene Wenger brought Robert Pires to Arsenal in the summer of 2000 he was a good footballer on the cusp of greatness. After a slow first season, his second was astonishing. He was a key player in Arsenal's double-winning year until a terrible injury curtailed the series of glorious performances that won him the prestigious Football Writers' Player of the Year award and put an end to his World Cup dreams. Robert Pires has always wanted to be a professional footballer and this triumphant story of footballing success has been preceded by a life dedicated to this single aim. After announcing at the age of eight that he intended to play football for a living he finally achieved his goal when he went to play for Rheims in 1991. Since then his career has taken him to Metz, to Marseilles, to Arsenal and onto the world stage with Les Bleus. In this book he describes how he turned his dreams into reality: the sacrifices he has made, the injuries he has had to endure; the rewards and demands of playing in the Premiership, and how his time with Arsene Wenger and Arsenal has transformed him. Footballeur is an honest and fascinating account of a brilliant career on planet football
