Jamie Redknapp is an English retired professional footballer who was active from 1989 until 2005. He is now a pundit at Sky Sports and an editorial sports columnist at the Daily Mail. A technically skilful and creative midfielder, who was also an accurate and powerful free-kick taker, Redknapp played for Bournemouth, Southampton, Liverpool, and Tottenham Hotspur, captaining the latter two.
He also gained 17 England caps between 1995 and 1999. His 11 years at Liverpool were the most prolific, playing more than 237 league games for the club and being involved in winning the 1995 Football League Cup Final.
In a career that was blighted by a succession of injuries, Redknapp was as famous for his media profile off the field as much as on it. He married the pop singer Louise in 1998. Redknapp comes from a well-known footballing family. His father is the football manager Harry Redknapp. He is also a cousin of Frank Lampard, and a nephew of former West Ham United coach Frank Lampard Sr.
In 2005, Redknapp launched a bi-monthly magazine with his wife Louise and former teammate 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. Redknapp was a team captain in the Sky1 sports game show A League of Their Own.
In June 2013, Sky Sports announced a brand new show for the 2013–14 season called Saturday Night Football, for their coverage of 5.30pm Saturday evening Premier League fixtures. The show is presented by Redknapp alongside David Jones with an audience of football fans debating current football issues.
