In the mag: Mourinho at United! Secrets of 66! Van Hooijdonk vs Van Persie!
Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho. The Special One finally has the job he’s always craved. The question now: will his often cited inability to compromise make or break Manchester United?
The words inscribed on the inside of his wrist watch – “I’m not afraid of the consequences of my decisions” – are a credo that has delivered success and strife in equal measure. Time to speak to those who know him and find out which it’ll be at Old Trafford in this month’s FFT.
We also take a look back over the events of the last month in France. Dimitri Payet’s exocet on the opening night, Bastian Schweinsteiger’s surprisingly energetic goal celebration, Hal Robson-Kanu’s Cruyff turn… relive the good, the bad and the ugly from four weeks of frolics at Euro 2016.
You’ve seen the clips of England’s triumph a thousand times, but there are plenty of other things about the 1966 World Cup that have been long forgotten. FFT learns the truth about the iconic tournament, passing on 66 things you didn’t know about ’66… on page 66. Naturally.
This month’s One-on-One is with Pierre van Hooijdonk, the former Nottingham Forest striker and Dutch international. He takes your questions on going on strike at Forest, not getting on with Robin van Persie and falling out with Dave Bassett… that’s one not to be missed. It gets, er, a bit ‘catty’.

First Michel Platini, then Zinedine Zidane – now it’s over to you, Paul Pogba. France have tasted victory in their last two tournaments on home soil thanks to the performances of an attacking midfielder who plays for Juventus, and Pogba could continue that trend at Euro 2016.
FFT tells the story of this summer’s poster boy as part of our cover feature on the stars of Euro 2016 – the tournament that will be the greatest show on Earth (yes, even better than the World Cup).
Can Cristiano Ronaldo and Zlatan Ibrahimovic succeed in their final bid for glory? Are Germany still cool after problems on-field wobbles and an off-field scandal? And can Jamie Vardy light up the tournament? We think he can, as we explain why he’s much more than just a supersub.
We also reveal what Antonio Conte will bring to Chelsea – once he’s won Euro 2016 with Italy, of course – and we speak to Cesc Fabregas about Spain’s hopes for a third successive European Championship crown.
Showtime! The cream of Europe goes head to head in France. Buy now, and we’ll send it same day free postage in the UK!

All 24 qualified teams are under the spotlight, with expert analysis suggesting the players to watch, how the teams set-up and info on each manager.
Featured are the ‘game changers’; Bale, Pogba, Sterling, and Lafferty.
Welcome introductions from Theodore Theodoridis (UEFA General Secretary) and Noel le Graet (French football federation president).
Are you ready for the most exciting tournament since 1958? We certainly are.
The British Isles will be represented by not one, not two, not three but four nations at Euro 2016 – the first time that has happened at a major tournament for fully 58 years. We’re determined to celebrate that fact, and in this month’s magazine we have exclusive interviews with key men from each of those four countries.
In fact this month you’ll get two magazines in one bag. Not only will you be able to read England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland previews as part of your normal monthly fix of features in the main magazine, but you’ll also get an additional 68-page Euro 2016 guide – including interviews with stars from all 24 nations at the tournament.
England go into the tournament full of optimism and we speak to Wayne Rooney, Harry Kane, Ross Barkley and Raheem Sterling to find out why it’s time for fans of the Three Lions to start dreaming big.
Plus – Four covers to choose from! *
* we are now sold out of N. Ireland covers. We do have N. Ireland covers left in the official UEFA Preview guide though.
