About this product
- DescriptionPeter Marinello was the footballing sensation of 1970. His record GBP100,000 transfer from Hibs to Arsenal made front page headlines and he was instantly hailed as the new George Best. Within weeks, he had appeared on Top of the Pops, secured a modelling contract and had his own football column in the Daily Express. But drinking and reckless behaviour were already a part of his life. In three years at Arsenal, Marinello played only 51 games and was eventually transferred to Portsmouth. More drinking, involvement with gangsters, his wife running off with a DJ, swindled out of all his money, bankruptcy, being arrested for attempted murder, having to buy heroin for his addicted son...From the highs, Peter Marinello's life plummeted to terrible lows until he pulled his life back round. It is an extraordinary story.
- Author BiographyPeter Marinello was born in Edinburgh and played for Hibs, Arsenal, Portsmouth, Motherwell, Canberra City in Australia, Fulham, Pheonix Inferno in the USA, Hearts and Partick Thistle in a career that ran from 1967 to 1984.
