Joe Cole - My Autobiography (book)


Hailed as a child prodigy from his days in the famed West Ham Youth Academy, Joe Cole has long been seen as one of the brightest stars in English football. Throughout his stellar career, Cole's dazzling skill and flair have set him apart among football's elite, while his unfaltering commitment to his team, whether West Ham, Chelsea or England, have always made him a fans' favourite. Now, in this frank and outspoken autobiography, Joe Cole tells the story of his remarkable career: of how his simple, all-consuming passion for football and his desire to succeed took him from humble north London beginnings to the glittering heights of international footballing superstardom; of his experiences playing with and against some of the biggest names in the sport, in particular his fraught and sometimes explosive relationship with ex-manager Jose Mourinho. Joe Cole: My Autobiography also tells the exclusive story of England's disastrous 2010 World Cup campaign as seen through the eyes of a player who was there. To the consternation of many fans at home and abroad Joe remained only a bit-part player throughout England's desperately disappointing campaign and here Joe talks about his frustration at being sidelined as well as sharing insights from within the camp as to how it all went so wrong. Uniquely honest, Joe Cole: My Autobiography is the football autobiography of the year. [1]
