Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of The Secret Footballer: What Goes on Tour by The Secret Footballer, read by Damien Lynch.

Since his first book was published in 2012, The Secret Footballer has been able to take the reader behind the scenes of footballers' lives like no other player has been able, or will ever be able, to do. Anonymity has been a potent weapon in revealing the real world of football stars, and five years on, he has now penned the work that all his fellow professionals have been urging him to do from the start, The Secret Footballer: What Goes on Tour. And it isn't going to stay on tour any more...

From Marbella and Ibiza to Dubai and Las Vegas, The Secret Footballer lays bare the worst, most embarrassing and most hilarious excesses of these fit and mostly fickle young men whose million-pound salaries, to use his own words, 'open up a host of recreational opportunities'. Fuelled by rampaging desires for sex, drugs, booze and rock'n'roll, these footballers think up ever more extreme ways of splashing the cash, and needless to say, it doesn't always end well...

HALARIOUS!

Funny and in places poignant, had to almost stop myself feeling sorry for professional footballers. Have to be honest though, confirms some of the stereotypes but how many of us listening would have traded places with TSF if we could!

Good stories as always from TSF

Great audiobook, really good to have another look behind the curtain. Like the other books TSF doesn’t hold back on sharing experiences with warts and all....literally in some cases. Would be great to hear a Mrs TSF book, I imagine that would be an eventful
one as eluded to in the foreword.

interesting

this is the second secret footballer book that I have read and I admire the honesty of how and why pro footballers choose to squander their money. it's as good a way of recycling the money as anyway else

it's a book about nothing

a bunch of non-stories; '...I had money, spent it all, so now I don't'... waaaaagh, waaaaagh, waaaaagh...my heart bleeds.
