British former footballer turned popular pundit, Graeme Le Saux made a name for himself as part of the most successful Premier League team of the 1990’s. Named as part of the Professional Footballers’ Association’s Team of the Year whilst at Chelsea and later again at Blackburn, Graeme proved a skilled and dominant player in his day, which led him to be equally revered in his secondary career as a commentator and football speaker. At events, Graeme shares an entertaining, often humorous, talk with audiences about the three decades he’s spent at the forefront of the game.
Best known for the glory years he spent at Chelsea, Graeme first joined the side for four years in 1989, and later returned for a further six successful years with the side in 1997. As the most expensive English defender at the time, Graeme lived up to his formidable reputation on the pitch, and secured a win for Chelsea in the Football League Cup, UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup and the UEFA Super Cup, all in 1998. Equally recognised for his success with Blackburn Rovers, the four years he spent with the side are some of the club’s most legendary, one of which being the 1995 Premier League winners, a season Graeme took center stage in.
An honour for any sportsman, Graeme was called up to represent the England national team on forty two occasions, including in the Under 21s division. As the side’s talented left back he was selected to play in all four of England’s 1998 World Cup games and his only international goal went down as an iconic occasion, recently named as England’s eighteenth Greatest Ever Goal.
After announcing his retirement and hanging up his boots in 2005, apart from one return match at Wembley, Graeme naturally transitioned into the role of a football pundit. In demand by broadcasters for his evident insight on the game and popularity with fans, Graeme worked for the BBC on their Match of the Day 2 programme and on Radio 5 Live. In addition he has become renowned for his commentary for the US based NBC Sports. His charming and amiable personality has seen him become a much-loved guest and public figure in the mainstream media.
With more than three decades spent in the sporting industry, enjoying some of football’s most iconic moments, Graeme Le Saux has an impressive collection of anecdotes he shares with audiences as an in demand after dinner speaker.
