About this book

King John John Charles The Autobiography

Sir Bobby Charlton reckons that if John Charles were playing today, his transfer value would be £70 million; and in a poll of Italian football fans, they voted him the greatest foreign player ever to play in their league, ahead of Maradona and Platini. He was equally adept as a centre forward or a centre half and often Juventus would play him up front until he scored and then move him back into defence to protect the lead. Whether playing for Leeds United, Wales or Juventus, he fully earned his nickname of "The Gentle Giant", never once being booked or sent off in a 15-year career, and always being the epitome of sportsmanship. "King John" recalls not just a vanished era of football, but also highlights what happens to our heroes once they have left the spotlight.
