Beyond The Pitch - Les Ferdinand

Friday, October 28, 2011


Phil and Anto are joined by former England striker and Premier League legend to Les Ferdinand to have a chat about Spurs, his remarkable career and a look at the recent charges of racism in football. The PFA player of the year in 1996 with Newcastle United and currently sitting fifth in the Premier League all time goal scoring record book, our next guest is one of the fine strikers to have appeared in the English top flight as the EPL emerged in the 1990s. Les Ferdinand became the first player to score for six different premier league clubs and notch the 10,000th goal in league history - a storied career which saw him play at QPR, Newcastle United, Tottenham Hotspur, West Ham United, Leicester and Bolton Wanderers and make 17 appearances for the England national team with five goals. He has partnered with the likes of legendary players Alan Shearer and Jurgen Klnsmann. Saved Tottenham from certain relegation while also helping Spurs win a League Cup in 1999, defeating Leicester City 1–0 in the final. Today, Les is the strikers coach on the Tottenham training staff - the club for whom he played 118 matches and scoring 33 goals. One of the major highlights is a discussion about the Rooney Rule which has worked in the National Football League to develop diversity in its hiring process over time and how this concept could be applied to European football.
