From the publisher:
The new edition of the bestselling biography Bobby Moore was the embodiment of all that was great about English football. Captaining England to glory in 1966 and West Ham to victory in several major tournaments, he was loved and respected throughout the world as football's golden boy. This definitive and authorised biography illuminates the extraordinary story of a sporting hero, from exciting accounts of his World Cup triumph to candid memories of his friendships with Beckenbauer, Eusebio and Pele.
It also reveals the inside story of a life beyond football, updated to include fascinating new material on Moore's enduring legacy in the years following his tragically premature death. Award-winning sports writer Jeff Powell, a close friend and confidant to the Moore family, has created a powerful and fitting tribute, honouring the golden era of English football and the exceptional man at its helm.
Jeff Powell is one of Britain's most respected sports writers. In a career that has spanned more than 50 years, Powell has covered some of the most iconic moments in sporting history. He has written for the Daily Mail for more than 40 years, covering 11 World Cups and countless world title fights. Powell delivered the eulogy at Bobby Moore's funeral, describing it as 'one of the saddest yet one of the most moving days of my life.'
