Chris Kamara

Ex-Portsmouth Footballer & Sky Sports Pundit

Football speaker, coach and public personality, Chris Kamara has worked in the football industry since the early 1970’s; spending more than twenty years as a player for a number of British teams including Leeds United, Sheffield United and Portsmouth. Since leaving professional football, Kamara has established himself as a sports speaker and football pundit; Kamara has worked as both a radio and TV presenter for SkySports and Soccer AM as well as taking part in a pioneering commentary technique where Kamara and a camera crew broadcast over a live video link.

As a football speaker, TV presenter and pundit Chris Kamara became known for his unusual and often comedic personality; whilst working as a football speaker for Sky Sports Kamara would use bizarre and as yet unheard of phrases to describe players, tactics and behaviour. He also became synonymous with viewers for his gaffs and mistakes, famously missing vital points during games including yellow cards and send offs.

Kamara brings this humorous aspect of his presentation to all his work as a sports speaker, whether commentating on a football match or presenting to a live audience as an after dinner speaker Kamara is unique and memorable, his personality and sense of humour bringing light and excitement to all his work.

Outside his work as a sports speaker and TV presenter Kamara spent a couple of years working as a manager; his knowledge of the sport, alongside his enigmatic personality and ferocious personal playing technique made him an insightful and inspirational coach, however, he was unable to drastically change the fortunes of his teams Stoke City and Bradford City. Kamara’s strength has always lain in his public presentation skills however and his work as a football speaker on the after dinner speaker circuit has been far more successful than his brief stint as a manager!
