One of the best football writers I have ever read -- Simon
With O, Louis Hugo Borst once again proves that he is one of the best sports writers of the Netherlands, although the adjective 'sports' can just as easily be left out * nu.nl *
A splendid document, in which Borst describes his search for the 'Total Human Being' Van Gaal in a honest, open-hearted and vulnerable way * Friesch Dagblad *
Funny, passionate, probably honest, and a bit of a winger with the words. The final World Cup chapters are glorious. I've read excellent books about football before but never one that I found unsettling -- Roddy Doyle * Guardian *
It's a keen insight into a larger-than-life personality * Sport *
