The man who followed him was John Roberts, a newspaper reporter who was given the task of shadowing Best during the most turbulent seasons of his Manchester United career.  He was also the first to be told by Best - over a steak dinner in a Manchester pub - that he wanted to leave United and pack in the game that had brought him fame and fortune.  Unlike any other book, 'Sod This I'm Off To Marbella' paints a unique and in-depth portrait of Best between 1971-1973 - the turning point years in his life and career.  Based on Roberts' original book published in 1973, it reveals the pressures he faced and how the public failed to come to terms with his unprecedented fall from grace.  Through the author's eyes, it also tells the inside story of Best's rocky relationship with the press and the national media's obsession with his celebrity lifestyle.
