Life is never dull at FFT and 2018 has been case in point. We have spent the last 12 months travelling far and wide to bring you the best stories and biggest names, occasionally putting ourselves in harm’s way in the process.
We went to Israel for one of the country’s most heated matches between Beitar Jerusalem and Bnei Sakhnin, and almost got kicked out of the stadium.
At Milan’s Milanello training ground, we listened to manager Gennaro Gattuso recount the time he stabbed former team-mate Massimo Oddo with a fork, and risked life and limb by heading to Belgian club OH Leuven to talk ostriches, among other things, with Nigel Pearson.
We also asked Mo Salah to pose with a crown (before his now famous chant had caught on), Glenn Murray to pretend he was being attacked by seagulls, and Nigel de Jong to play along with a gag about his nickname and ride around on a lawnmower.
And, of course, we enjoyed a World Cup where two of this year’s cover stars, Harry Kane and Kylian Mbappe, shone. What a year it’s been... time to relive it with some of the star performers. Enjoy!
