'You Are A Champion' - Carl Anka on writing with Marcus Rashford

This week on the podcast we welcome back writer and The Athletic journalist, Carl Anka, to tell us all about writing the massively successful 'You Are A Champion' with Manchester United and England superstar Marcus Rashford. Carl takes us through the writing process step-by-step, including post-match phone calls in the car, going back to Marcus's primary school, unexpected lessons from Memphis Depay's autobiography and Marcus's love of strawberry biscuits. Plus Carl on the huge reaction the book's received, the upcoming sequel and we get his take on the Andy Crabbe story.
