Life in a Jungle: My Autobiography by Bruce Grobbelaar
Hand Signed by Bruce Grobbelaar to the Title Page
New & Unread - Published 2018
Bruce Grobbelaar is the most decorated goalkeeper in Liverpool FC’s 125-year history. And yet, question marks have followed him around; question marks about his goalkeeping suitability after arriving on Merseyside; question marks about his integrity after match fixing allegations were laid against him. Here, Grobbelaar takes you to Africa, where nothing is at it seems; he takes you back to an era when Liverpool ruled Europe; he takes you to the benches of the Anfield dressing room, where only the strongest personalities survived. For the first time, he takes you inside the court room, detailing the draining fight to clear his name.
About the Author: Bruce Grobbelaar’s life has been a path less trodden. Born in Durban in South Africa, he served in the Rhodesian Bush War before moving to Canada to play football for Vancouver Whitecaps. He arrived in England, initially on loan at Crewe Alexandra. Later, Bob Paisley – Liverpool’s most successful manager – decided to sign him as a replacement for the great Ray Clemence. Grobbelaar spent nearly 15 seasons at Anfield where he made 628 appearances, including 440 in the League, winning the League championship with Liverpool six times, as well as three FA Cups, three League Cups and the 1983–84 European Cup; he amassed 19 medals in total. The match fixing allegations followed, along with shorter spells at six other English clubs including seasons with Southampton & Plymouth Argyle. He now lives in Canada.
