9781909178762: The Sergio Torres Story: From the Brick Factory to Old Trafford

An inspirational, personal story of one soccer star's never-say-die attitudes, and his rise to the top

Sergio Torres's is an incredible true story of the benefits of willpower, sacrifice, joy, and daring to dream. Imagine you're working in a brick factory in the Argentine city Mar del Plata, and a 22-year-old colleague tells you he's going to quit his job to become a professional soccer player in Europe. Yeah, right. Next, he blows his savings on a ticket to England, traveling with just $300 in his pocket. He doesn't speak English, has no one to stay with and no work. Time passes, and you forget about the kid—until, three years later, you turn on the TV and he's playing against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge—mixing it against the likes of Ballack and Drogba. After his brush with the Blues, it isn't long before he's up against Wayne Rooney at a packed Theatre of Dreams. The incredible journey of Crawley Town playmaker Sergio Torres shows that reality can be stranger than fantasy.
