In the summer of 1995 Bobby Robson was diagnosed with cancer and given just months to live.
Miraculously, less than a year later Robson was managing the legendary FC Barcelona – motto More Than A Club
But Bobby Robson was more than a manager.
The miner’s son from Newcastle played for his country. When he transformed Ipswich into European winners it was clear his real talent lay in coaching.
Fearless, his gift was to be at his best when the worst threatened.
Via the Hand of God, Gazza s tears, England’s greatest world cup abroad to titles in Europe’s top leagues and a Barcelona treble, Robson overcame the most extreme challenges before a career like no other came full circle when he returned to save his beloved Newcastle.
Many of today’s great managers owe their rise to Robson. A daring coach he could spot genius and help it grow.
Starring an A list cast (Mourinho, Guardiola, Ronaldo, Gascoigne, Shearer, Lineker, Sir Alex Ferguson) never before seen archive and emotional testimony from Lady Elsie Robson, this is the definitive portrait of one of sport’s most inspirational and influential figures.
