Chappuis - My Story is a captivating narrative that chronicles the remarkable journey of Charyl Chappuis, one of Thailand's most iconic footballers of the 21st Century and arguably the country's first 'celebrity footballer'. From his beginnings in Kloten, a small town near Zurich, to his rise to stardom in Thailand, the book delves into the life of a player whose talent and resilience captured the hearts of a country. 

As a teenager, Charyl became a world champion with the Swiss U-17 side and turned down Juventus - twice!

At just 21, he made the bold move to Thailand - his mother's home country - and joined Buriram United in 2013. His new club won the domestic treble in his first season, but Charyl's transition to his new environment was not without its challenges, both on and off the pitch.

The book also shines the spotlight on Charyl's rise to stardom with the Thailand national team, from the U-23 squad to his pivotal role in the historic 2014 AFF Cup victory. Just as his career was hitting new heights, a career-threatening injury was a huge blow at the worst possible time. But Charyl's determination ensured there was much more to his story in the years to come.

Chappuis - My Story is written with Bangkok-based journalist Paul Murphy, and is a compelling tale of perseverance, triumph, and an unwavering passion for the beautiful game, offering readers a rare glimpse into the life of an icon of Asian football.
