Description

This is the story of Rayo Vallecano and their place within a footballing city that is occupied by two modern football behemoths. The club was founded in 1924 in working-class Vallecas and has a rich, complex, and at times, unbelievable history. This book encompasses all of that, along with a first-hand account of falling in love with the club.
