Pitch author and Crawley Town star midfielder Sergio Torres will join well-know Spanish journalist Guillem Balague and former Middlesbrough, Barcelona, Lazio and Spanish international footballer Giazka Mendieta at the National Football Museum on Monday the 17th February.

 

The trio will be there to talk football in general, with a Spanish twist on the eve of the Manchester City v Barcelona Champions League meeting at the Etihad Stadium, and both Sergio and Guillem will be talking about the respective books: The Sergio Torres Story and Messi.

• Sergio’s story has already provoked much football and general media interest
• Written by Sergio in collaboration with his friend, Argentine journalist Juan Manuel Lopez
• Includes colour photo section, with pictures to accompany the text
