Puskas of Hungary in the '50s; Pele of Brazil and Gianni Rivera of Italy in the '60s; Platini of France in the '70s; Diego Maradona of Argentina in the '80s; Baggio and Zidane in the '90s - the most magical, supremely talented footballers of the post-war period have all worn the Number 10 shirt. Puskas presided over the regal Real Madrid side that won five consecutive European Cups between 1955 and 1960 and like his fellow number 10s in the football hall of fame and infamy, shares the uncanny ability to transcend the role of mere 'player'. The terms 'inside forward', 'playmaker' or 'fantasista' fail to capture the instinct for genius that characterises all great Number 10s. In ten mini-biographical essays on some of the greatest players the world has ever seen Richard Williams explores the astonishing creative influence of the most celebrated players to wear the shirt and recreates some of the most memorable moments witnessed on a football field.
