“Soccer is an exciting game that, nonetheless, has no heart.” There is no social phenomenon that has adapted more naturally to globalization than soccer.  Jorge Valdano reviews the different key players in this spectacle, and describes how each one has adapted to soccer’s new global reality: how the game itself has changed, transforming the role of coaches and players, who have become new worldwide heroes. And he explains how soccer is now a business without borders that generates an excitement that never stops coming, and that has faithful fans in every corner of the planet.
