 DAZN has launched the new TV series about CR7, Neymar and Mourinho 9 episodes to recount the games that made them become legends

Great news from DAZN for the beginning of the football season, the new original series "The Making Of" was launched today, starring real soccer stars like Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar Jr, and Jose Mourinho. The streaming platform dedicated to sport improves its offer, creating the first global series dedicated to football, consisting of 9 episodes of approximately 25 minutes. The story is not that type of sports documentaries, instead, it tells individual moments of the career of the main acts, games that have indelibly marked their careers. The interviews divided into 3 meetings are accompanied by unpublished images and amateur videos shot directly from the stands, combined with testimonies of teammates and opponents who have experienced the emotions of that moment up close.

The first episode will feature Cristiano Ronaldo, who will tell the head key moment of his career, the famous friendly match, his last with the Portuguese team, between Sporting Lisbon and Manchester United in 2003. The "53 minutes of torture" - as the English commentators called them - suffered by John O'Shea on the right-wing that convinced Alex Ferguson to put the 18-year-old boy under contract within a few days. Just the Scottish defender tells firsthand the feelings of that match and the talent of the young CR7.

In the first episode dedicated to him, Jose Mourinho recounts the crazy run after Costinha's goal against United, in the second leg of the 2004 Champions League round of 16, while in the second episode the Special One will relive the emotions of 2010 final and the conquest of the treble.
Also, in this case, there will be some protagonists such as the former Nerazzurri goalkeeper Julio Cesar.

Neymar Jr will tell us about two very different moments in his career. The first concerns the match against Flamengo, when he was still wearing the Santos shirt, in particular, the goal granted with the FIFA Puskas Award. The second episode that sees the Brazilian as the protagonist regards the challenge of returning the Champions League knockout rounds 2017 against PSG, his two goals, the last-minute Sergi Roberto's one and the comeback, described by O'Ney as the best moment of his career. 

The goal of DAZN is to improve its proposals even more by combining the programming of live matches with original content. The Making Of is the first series produced by the platform, after the docu-series In Our Blood on MotoGP, the docu-film Being Mario Götze, the docu-series in three episodes Canelo vs. Rocky and the more recent 40 Days and ABOUT: The story behind the upset of the era, a behind-the-scenes look at the historic meeting between Anthony Joshua vs Ruiz Jr for the heavyweight title. A new exciting vision of the sport that surpasses only the live event, creating involvement and immersive experience that brings lovers closer to big sportsman.



The Making Of documentary is available from today on DAZN.
