1. Sir Matt Busby: The Definitive Biography
Hey, don’t you dare scoff – there’s nothing wrong with some good reading. Football is not all about goals. Besides, what’s the point of leaving a legacy if no one reads about it? This gift will allow your football crazed family to get some reading in and maybe learn something new about their favourite game.
The biography is about Sir Matt Busby who created the global entity that spread from Old Trafford and took Manchester United to unprecedented fame and glory. The book looks at the phenomenal life and career of Busby, with highs such as the Wembley victory that made Man-U the first English team to Win the European Cup and lows like the Munich disaster that claimed over 20 lives. I don’t know about you, but any football-loving soul will appreciate a story of one of the most celebrated figures in football history.
