Luka's life and football story is incredible. In this book the readers will be able to see for themselves how much hard work and sacrifice stands behind his fantastic success. Emotions are the baseline of this story. -- Marcelo
Playing alongside Luka, I realized very early on what kind of football genius he is. In this book I found out about the difficult path that my great friend had to tread in order to reach the top. Only the strongest of characters can do that. -- Karim Benzema

Luka is a wonderful player, talented and responsible. He is a great man as well, always putting the team first. This book makes it perfectly clear how he managed to become the best in the world by staying the same humble guy through and through. -- Raphael Varane
