This article was particularly satisfying for me. Getting my work published by In Bed With Maradona suggested that my writing was certainly progressing. I wanted to show that I could be diverse as a writer and not just somebody who could only talk about topical debates in Football. I also wanted to learn more about the history of the game and this was a productive way of doing it. After Manchester United played Galatasaray in September, I decided to delve into Turkish football. I saw Metin Otkay’s incredible record and hero status in Turkey and I wished to gain a greater understanding about him. After undertaking heavy research, I was able to produce this piece. At the time I felt like this was one of the best articles I had produced.
