The Gigante

In 1957 a reluctant John Charles travelled to Italy having been sold for a record fee to Juventus. Leaving Leeds behind he nervously relocated his family to a new country and began a new career in Turin. Playing with a target on his back was nothing new but he had never experienced the level of attention that lay ahead. In this fictional retelling of his time in Italy you get to witness Charles' journey from nervous new boy to il Gigante Buono - the Gentle Giant.
