Marcelo Gallardo was the only man in the history of the River Plate Football Club to win international titles both as a player and as a coach. This book recounts Gallardo’s year-and-a-half run as the coach of River (from June 2014 to November 2015), based on his testimony and that of his coworkers. It also takes the reader to Gallardo’s infancy, his boyhood experiences, his three periods as a player with River, the two World Cups he took part in, and his time playing in Europe.
