He says that it was nothing other than his "man-management" skills that helped him to deal with the global stars.[1] His relationship with Cristiano Ronaldo has got special importance in the book.[2] He says that he never wanted Ronaldo to join Real Madrid.[3] In this book, he expresses his feelings about David Beckham, Ryan Giggs, etc. He mentions for the first time how he was against Beckham's decision to join his son's football team as head coach.
