Gary Mabbutt MBE

Tottenham Hotspur Legend & Football Speaker

Tottenham Hotspurs legend Gary Mabbutt MBE was one of the most respected football players of his era. Enjoying a sixteen-year spell at Tottenham, Mabbutt was a fan’s favourite, captaining the side for a total of eleven years also. A regular feature in the England squad as well, Mabbutt’s extremely reliable performances played an elemental role in both his domestic and international football career. A wonderful sports speaker for events, Gary engages with guests to give them an insight into his time in top-flight football.

After a three-year spell at Bristol Rovers at the start of his career, Mabbutt joined Tottenham Hotspur in 1982. Winning the UEFA Cup with the side in 1984 as well as the FA Cup in 1991, Gary’s seventeen seasons with the club were both successful and consistent. Discussing what is needed to perform at this elite, level Gary delivers useful advice as a football speaker that can be related to both sporting and business environments.

A fine ambassador for the sport, Gary had to battle diabetes during his playing career, yet still managed to turn out each week and perform to the very highest of levels. Despite never winning a league medal, Mabbutt is widely considered to be one of the most revered players of the premier league of both the 1980s and 1990s.

An ideal after dinner speaker or event host for functions, Gary is a compelling character who has enjoyed a lifetime in football, giving him a number of wonderful anecdotal tales to call upon during talks as a football speaker.
