The sports journalist Guillem Balague, who writes for the Times and appears regularly on Sky Sports, is known for A Season On The Brink, an insider’s account of the year Liverpool won the Champions League under Rafael Benitez. His latest book (published by Orion) is Pep Guardiola: Another Way Of Winning, a biography of the phenomenally successful former manager of Barcelona.
Guillem Balague spoke about his book in November at a sell-out event organised by Waterstones, Liverpool Bold St. Such was the success of the evening that Guillem is returning to the city for another Waterstones event at LEAF, Water St on January 18 (7pm). For more details ring 0151 708 6861.
