The Manager Inside the minds of football's leaders
Bloomsbury Publishing, £16.99
Accepting a lift from the coach when you're a professional sportsman is risky. He might be reading a management book - a cliched compendium of contradictory advice, puffed heavily on the cover.
Your eyes would be drawn to the open page on the passenger seat, where you'd read, underlined in red, something like: 'Don't be afraid to drop the best players. It's good for them. Be ruthless.'
