So I've only been following soccer with any depth for the past 6 years and I'm really interested in the history of the sport but have no real knowledge of it. For example, all I knew about Zinedine Zidan was that he headbutted the crap out Marco Matterazzi. I had no idea he was one of the greatest players to ever play the game. Messi breaking Gerd Muller's (another person I'd never heard of) goal record has really peaked my interest to actually learn about the past greats and such. I was hoping some of you folks could point me in the right direction? I'm a reader so books would be preferred, but I'll take whatever you've got.
