"Broken bones, studs in the face, a seized back - as a goalkeeping legend with Aberdeen, Norwich City, Hibernian and Scotland, Bryan Gunn knew all about pain. But nothing could prepare him for the discovery that his one year-old daughter Francesca was critically ill with leukaemia. In Where it Hurts is the candid and moving story of Bryan Gunn's life. From a tough upbringing in the far north of Scotland, and an apprenticeship under Alex Ferguson at Aberdeen (which included regular babysitting duties for 'the boss'), to a spectacular career at Norwich City, and a spell as Scotland's number 1, on the pitch his career was a triumph. Off it his world was shattered by the tragedy of losing Francesca in 1992, but her memory lives proudly on through the phenomenal success of Bryan Gunn's Appeal, which has now raised more than £800,000 for pioneering child leukaemia projects. In Where it Hurts is a compelling and emotional story, sometimes painful to read but often hilariously funny, that goes beyond the average football autobiography. It is the story of a great footballer, and a remarkable man.
