Description

Nii Lamptey was hailed as 'the next Pelé' by Pelé himself. But after spells with PSV Eindhoven, Aston Villa and Coventry City he failed to fulfil that prophecy. Instead, his career was blighted by injuries, domestic violence, bad agents and a turbulent personal life that pushed him to the brink of suicide. This is his authorised biography.
