Englischer Fussball: Othering the English

“Raphael Honigstein makes his living as a football interpreter. Best known in the English speaking world for his columns on German football in the Guardian and participation in that newspaper’s well-known football podcast, he plays the reverse role in his home country, acting as English football correspondent for the Suddetsche Zeitung. This dual role – explaining German football to the English and English football to the Germans – puts him in a fairly unique position among football journalists. And it left him well placed three years ago to find a German publisher for ‘Higher, Better, Faster, Stronger’, a guide to English football which has just been re-issued in English as Englischer Fussball.” (Pitch Invasion)
