Welcome to the latest World Soccer newsletter. This month we bring you an exclusive interview with Milan’s much-travelled midfielder Clarence Seedorf. There are also interviews with Lyon supremo Jean-Michel Aulas, arguably the most powerful man in French football, and Real Madrid goalkeeper Jerzy Dudek.
The new issue of World Soccer features a special report on football’s movers and shakers, as we look at the 100 most influential people in the world game. Also, we interview David Dein, until recently a key member of the football elite, but now looking for a way back into the game.
Elsewhere, Brian Glanville wonders why Chelsea are so keen to erase Jose Mourinho from the history books. Meanwhile, Paul Gardner argues that the football authorities must clamp down on violent play before it is too late, and Jim Holden asks why England appears incapable of producing any decent coaches.
With Euro 2008 finals on the horizon, we continue our countdown to Austria and Switzerland with in-depth features on Spain and Turkey, and our Country Spotlight turns its attention to Brazil.
This month’s travel feature looks at the delights on offer in Genoa, while our Memories section looks back at the legendary Real Madrid side that won a fifth successive European Cup in 1960 and, who, according to Brian Glanville, were the original exponents of Total Football.
