Description:
In 1977, Laurie Cunningham became the first black footballer to play professionally for England and, two years later, went on to become the first Englishman to play for Real Madrid. In a time when race relations were a divisive social issue, and when racist chants and bananas would be thrown from the stands, Cunningham's success changed the way black players were perceived and paved the way for a new generation of black footballers. But Cunningham was more than 'the greatest natural talent this country [had] produced since George Best'. He wanted to be different. He wanted to talk about fashion, dance and cinema, not just hang around footballers. He was a man of swagger with a love of funk music and bespoke suits. And he was an exceptional footballer who could play like a dream.
