In her candid memoir How (Not) to Be Strong, Alex shares the lessons that have shaped her, from finally confronting the legacy of a tumultuous childhood to tarnished truth behind the gleaming football trophies. The former Arsenal captain and England centurion helped Arsenal achieve a domestic double of the FA Women’s Cup and the FA Women’s Premier League. Although she has since found success as a footballer and presenter, abuse from online trolls led to severe struggles with her mental health and alcohol. But thanks to a ‘push-through mentality’ the world has only ever seen the ‘strong’ side of Alex Scott.
