Gerard Houllier transformed the fortunes of Liverpool Football Club. This modest, erudite and urbane man has a distinguished record of remarkable success at both club and international level in France. He also has the determination and ruthlessness that characterise the top football manager. Houllier guided Liverpool to a record-breaking five consecutive cup wins. Under his tutelage the Reds won six cups. Houllier is an innovative coach, expert tactician and renowned football theorist who has enjoyed a long-standing love affair with Liverpool Football Club. In this biography, Nick Michael draws upon exclusive interviews with friends of Houllier and charts his successful career in football management. Gerard Houllier started out coaching the juniors at a part-time football team whilst working as a teacher in northern France. Through his achievements and growing reputation as a coach, Houllier steadily rose to play a key role in France winning the World Cup in 1998 for which he was awarded a special medal. Houllier’s radical reconstruction of the Liverpool team in the summer of 1999 is described in detail, as are key games throughout his period in charge of Liverpool. The heart condition, which almost cost Houllier his life, is also covered. Informed by a host of revealing quotes from the articulate Frenchman, this book gives essential insights into one of the most successful and charming football managers of our times, a man whose all-consuming passion for the beautiful game is simply infectious.
