LoveReading Expert Review of Sir Matt Busby: The Definitive Biography

Sir Matt Busby, the legendary Manchester United manager who saw the team through unprecedented glory, as well as profound tragedy, made the club the global entity it is today.


Sir Matt Busby: The Definitive Biography Synopsis

As a League footballer before WWII, Busby remained at the forefront of the game for four decades and made an extraordinary contribution to football. Busby's emphasis on youth, local players, and a passing attack game set a template that turned just another north football club into what is now the world's greatest football brand. In this definitive biography, Patrick Barclay takes a look back at Busby's phenomenal life and career, including the incredible force of the Busby Babes in the fifties, the tragic Munich air disaster that claimed 23 lives, and Manchester United's historic victory ten years on - becoming the first English team to win the European Cup. Sir Bobby Charlton, Denis Law, Pat Crerand, Nobby Styles and Wilf McGuinness are among the host of witnesses testifying to the qualities that set Sir Matt apart.

This is the story of the greatest figure in football history and his legacy, which will live on forever.
