As the inspirational captain of the most famous football (soccer) club in the world, he's been the driving force behind Manchester United's unprecedented run of success that includes back-to-back doubles, the treble and the World Club Championship.

One word of warning though, do not read this book in a libary, hospital, or anywhere else you will get in trouble for laughing out loud.
