Jamie Redknapp

Jamie has become a popular media personality since retiring from football. He was admired by the Kop faithful in his time at Liverpool, and is now admired by thousands as a team-captain on the incredibly entertaining A League of Their Own. He also lends his footballing expertise to Sky Sports and the Daily Mail as a pundit and columnist. A midfielder, Jamie Redknapp played for England 17 times between 1995 and 1999. At club level, he scored 34 goals from 314 appearances in the domestic leagues. He won one major trophy during his career – the 1995 League Cup with Liverpool. In a career that was blighted by a succession of injuries, Jamie was as famous for his media profile off the field as much as on it. He married the pop singer Louise in 1998. Jamie comes from a well-known footballing family. His father, Harry Redknapp, is the manager of Tottenham Hotspur. He is also a cousin of the Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard, and a nephew of former West Ham United coach Frank Lampard Senior. In the summer of 2004 Jamie was a pundit on Euro 2004 with the BBC, mainly based in the studio. Since his retirement, he has entered the field of punditry, mainly with Sky Sports. In 2005, Jamie launched a bi-monthly magazine with his wife Louise and former team-mate Tim Sherwood named Icon Magazine, aimed at professional footballers and their families. In 2010 he was made host and mentor on the Sky1 show Football's Next Star. He is also a team captain in the Sky1 show A League of Their Own. Handsome, agreeable and courteous, Jamie would make wonderful brand ambassador.
