On the occasion of Newcastle United's return to the Premier League, deCoubertin Books are delighted to announce publication of bestselling author Martin Hardy's insider account of the club's rebirth under Rafa Benitez, Rafa's Way.
Following on from the award nominated Touching Distance and the acclaimed Tunnel of Love, Rafa’s Way tells the story of Newcastle's remarkable Championship campaign, the turnaround in the fortunes of Newcastle United and the dramatic promotion. It charts Benitez’s overhaul of everything within a troubled club, his impact on its city, and how he immersed himself in a community that persuaded him to stay, and could not bear to see him leave.
Rafa’s Way talks in-depth to Benitez, about his beliefs and the challenge he faced, to the players, the key men in black and white stripes who made Newcastle United champions, and delves into the very heart of a football club as it emerged from the ashes.
Rafa's Way will be published on 5 June, priced £19.99
