Werner Herzog’s favourite English footballers (excerpt from The Southbank Show)

The legendary German director picks his three favourite English footballers.

1. Bobby Charlton – “The man is a genius, who brought football back to it’s very basic simplicity”.

2. Nobby Stiles – “What a character he was”.

3. Glenn Hoddle – “If you want to see an earthquake in the stadium, just go and see him play”.

The full Werner Herzog South Bank Show documentary (directed by Jack Bond) is included on the BFI’s deluxe THE WERNER HERZOG COLLECTION box set – released July 2014.
