Stan Cullis The Iron Manager

Regular price £10.00 £0.00
Few men have made a greater impact on football than Stan Cullis.The dramatic claim that his Wolves team were ‘champions of the world‘ after beating Honved in I954 sparked the creation of the European Cup tournament.That, in itself, would
guarantee his place in soccer history. There is much more, however, to the story of Stan Cullis. He emerged from a bleak childhood to be appointed captain of the Wolves in the week of his 20th birthday. and at the age of 22, he became the youngest skipper of the
England national side. Cullis was a great player, as was Ferenc Puskas, the great Hungarian. described him as ‘the most classical centre-half of his time‘. Cullis became an even greater manager, winning three Football League championships and two FA Cups for the
Wolves thanks to ‘long-ball‘ tactics that provoked endless controversy.
His reputation was worldwide. When Wolves brutally sacked him in l964 the first offer of a new iob came from Italian club juventus. He turned it down — and few football bosses can say that. Stan Cullis fully merited the unique title he loved to live up to; he was the lron Manager.
