This month we’ve made Borussia Dortmund sensation Jadon Sancho our youngest cover star since Lionel Messi first graced our front page in 2005. Sancho may not go on to win five Ballons d’Or like Leo, but there’s no doubt he’s the most exciting English youngster in over a decade.
He’s also one of the most enthusiastic and welcoming players we’ve ever met. He was more than happy to lark about with the assortment of retro tech we turned up with (a play on the fact that, terrifyingly, he was born in 2000), and seemed genuinely giddy at being shot for our cover.
We’ve also met a serial Champions League winner in Gareth Bale, tracked down Dutch football’s forgotten prodigy Royston Drenthe and made Nigel Winterburn re-enact the most embarrassing moment of his career, not that he minded.
