Uwe Rosler Knocking Down Walls My Autobiography, Paperback Book

Uwe Rosler Knocking Down Walls My Autobiography Paperback

Description

Destined for an unremarkable career in East Germany, where the Berlin Wall presented a greater mental boundary than the bricks and mortar that formed the physical division between two different worlds, Uwe was 25 and heading nowhere.

Then, a chance for the raw talent that had been contained in his repressive surrounds was to be set loose, as he was offered the chance of a loan at struggling English Premier League club, Manchester City.

The contrast between 'Madchester' and his homeland could not have been more marked.

The mullet-haired striker was an instant hit, his goals helping City survive relegation and winning him a permanent deal.

Voted Player of the Year in his first full season in England, over the next four years Rosler wrote his name into City folklore and became a terrace idol.

The fans loved his raw passion, commitment and the fact he wore his heart on his sleeve - that, plus his goals.

However, once he fell out with boss Alan Ball, there was only going to be one winner.
