Dream Like Me: South Asian Football Trailblazers

Manisha Tailor

Regular price £12.99

Tax included.

From the publisher:

There remains a lack of representation from the South Asian community across all levels of football, despite it being one of the largest ethnic minority groups to be living in the UK. In this first of its kind book, trailblazing coach Manisha Tailor profiles 42 pioneering individuals working in all parts of the game - from male and female players to coaches, referees, board members, administrators, sports scientists and medical staff - and representing different cultures and faiths within the British Asian community. Based on interviews, these powerful stories not only illustrate the challenges faced by these role models, but lessons that they can offer young readers.

Young people need to see people like them in order to believe that dreams are possible: the role models in this inspirational book will show South Asian children and teens that their football dreams can come true.

The author:
