Published in France to widespread acclaim, it gives a unique, footballer’s-eye view of life as a Premier League striker – from the glory, the riches and the fast cars to the pressure to win, the agonising injuries and the women who will do anything to bed a footballer!
Saha writes with great insight and humour, drawing on his own experiences – from his childhood in the notorious outer suburbs of Paris to starring for Manchester United in the Premier League and reaching the World Cup with France – and tackles heavyweight issues like racism, inflated player wages and media intrusion head-on.
Packed with insights, anecdotes and perceptive personal reflections, the book also contains the fascinating thoughts of numerous giants of the game who have granted Saha exclusive and incredibly revealing interviews – including a remarkable one to one with Sir Alex Ferguson and quotes from the likes of Zinédine Zidane, Thierry Henry, Phil Neville and many more. There is even a chapter written by Saha’s wife, Aurélie, on life as a footballer’s wife.
‘Thinking Inside The Box’ is a truly unique and exceptional football book.
