Product Details


“HOW TO WATCH SOCCER is partly a memoir…. But this is no dishy, celebrity tell-all. Mr. Gullit earnestly plods down the path of enlightening the American audience.” —Wall Street Journal

“If you’re new to watching soccer, Gullit offers a good primer on what to watch for; if you’re more well-versed with the sport, there’s still plenty of insight to be found here” —Men’s Journal

“Using myriad—though never gratuitous or self-indulgent—examples from his own career as a player and manager, Gullit peels below the surface and encourages readers to do more than simply watch the ball…. A passionate insider’s approach to understanding a game that seems so simple but contains almost inexhaustible complexity.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Gullit’s remarkable insight blends personal experience at all levels to create a unique way to look at soccer and see the how and why of matches […] this is an ideal book for both novices or fully devoted fans to enrich viewing or simply following the sport internationally” —Library Journal

“In this meticulous compendium of soccer tactics, formations, patterns of play, and player psychology, Gullit… offers reasonable advice for players, coaches and fans….”   —Publisher’s Weekly

“Ruud Gullit manages to convey the sense that football is really quite simple if you’re a genius like him, but without actually being annoying. A rare talent”  —Metro

“Ruud Gullit was the best player in the world. His sheer energy could create chances”—
David Winner, Author of Brilliant Orange: The Neurotic Genius of Dutch Football
