Luis Figo documentary hit Netflix
The Figo Affair is one of the distinguished works, as the documentary story revolves around the character of the former Spanish player, Luis Figo, in addition to the story of his transfer from Barcelona Football Club to Real Madrid.
The player Luis Figo is one of the distinguished stars in the world of football, as he is famous for his transfer to two football clubs, including Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Inter Milan, and he also won the Golden Ball award for the year 2000.
The work is directed by David Treehorn, who is best known for directing the documentary film about the Brazilian legend Pele, in which the work recounts the obstacles and suffering that stood in front of Pele in order to achieve his dream and ambition.
David Treehorn said: “It’s increasingly difficult to find sports documentaries that say something new, and they aren’t just biographies or sports success stories, so we think That “El Caso Figo” is unique. Focusing on transportation rather than Figo’s career, the film tells us about the truth, greed, morals, and inner mechanics of the world’s most popular sport.”
David Trehorn added: “We were happy that everyone involved in the deal was ready to be fully involved. Everyone, from Florentino Perez to Pep Guardiola, was generous with their time but Luis Figo was particularly accommodating, desperate because he was about to make things right after two decades of avoiding the issue of his transfer. “
