Journalist-turned-writer Jilly Cooper, who gained fame for his bestselling novels Riders and Rivals, interviewed the British daily Guardian on the 5th to commemorate the publication of his new novel Tackle! 안전놀이터
As The Guardian is Cooper’s first football book, which mainly wrote romance and sex novels, he lightly asked about his favorite soccer player when he began the interview. Cooper said I like Man City. In particular, I like Phil Foden and Jack Grealish, he said. Tottenham Son Heung-min is also very attractive.
Cooper was a native of Yorkshire in England, so he supported Leeds United when he was young. I often have so much affection for soccer that I visit the stadium. Although he is not a Tottenham fan, he seems to have naturally learned the existence of Son Heung-min, the league’s top striker. Even in the eyes of an old British writer, Son Heung-min seems to be really attractive.
Cooper said he made a commitment to write a football-related novel after talking with former Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson in the past. I asked my neighbor Tony Adams for a lot of advice. Task! dealt with the scandal, power and corruption of the football version after a football-hating man named Rupert Campbell-Black took over a local club.
