Arguably the game's biggest motivator, Jurgen Klopp has taken Liverpool FC back to the pinnacle of world football. Just three seasons into his reign at Anfield, Jurgen has transformed a seemingly lacklustre Liverpool to one of the most feared teams in Europe.
Before the charismatic German arrived on the scene, Liverpool had been in a state of flux, going through three managers in five years following Rafael Benitez' 2010 exit. Jurgen, who called himself 'The Normal One' in his opening press conference, wasted no time in imprinting his 'gegenpressing' style. In his first season at the helm, he took Liverpool to the Europa League and League Cup finals, only to agonisingly miss out after a series of dramatic results.
That set the tone for Liverpool's progression and the 2016-17 season saw him return Liverpool to the Champions League. In the club's first season back in the competition, they embarked on an incredible run to the Champions League Final where they narrowly missed out to Real Madrid.
Jurgen has often overcome adversity in his management career, turning around the fortunes of his teams, including picking a team up after consecutive losses in domestic and European finals to compete again the following season. He has regularly made the difference for a team, inspiring his players to achieve great success.
With over 20 years in management and 20 years spent as a football player, Harry Redknapp has seen it all in the game. For this reason, it comes as no surprise that Harry has hundreds of anecdotes from throughout his illustrious career. A charming, humourous storyteller, Harry provides the inside track into the trials and tribulations of professional football in a way that few others can.
With stories regarding his careful man management of Paolo Di Canio to his deadline day antics; his dramatic FA Cup win with Pompey to the West Ham fan he brought on in a friendly prove there is never a dull moment with Harry Redknapp. This plucky Cockney can speak on peak performance, football and maximising success, making him a inspirational and motivational football speaker.
A passionate leader on the field, Jimmy Bullard's footballing antics are well-known. Since leaving the game, Jimmy has become one of the most entertaining football speakers and pundits, following on from his charismatic on-field horseplay.
Jimmy's anecdotes are aplenty and your audience can expect ample laughs when Jimmy presents at your corporate and sporting events. The charming star has won the hearts of many football and reality television fans, during a career that has seen him play for Fulham, Wigan Athletic and Hull City as well as appear on I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here. Jimmy has a mental toughness that has helped him to the top of the game and his entertaining stories make for great motivational speeches.
Revelations of Kevin Keegan's career have been pouring into the public domain with his autobiography offering a remarkable insight into the career of the former player and manager.
Having played for Liverpool FC, Hamburger SV, Newcastle United and England over the course of an 18-year playing career, where he won the European Cup with Liverpool as well as the European Footballer of the Year accolade twice consecutively, Kevin moved into management. He took control of Newcastle United for a hugely successful reign before managing England and Manchester City.
Able to talk about his pride of both captaining and managing the England team, his impressive stint at Newcastle, as well as themes of management, leadership and European football, Kevin is one of the most knowledgeable football after dinner speakers around.
Garth Crooks OBE
A hugely popular and often outspoken motivational football speaker, Garth Crooks OBE has earned a stellar reputation in the footballing sphere. Considered a leading authority on football, Garth offers unique and engaging insight into the ins and outs of the game. Overcoming adversity to reach the top of the game, Garth Crooks' mental strength ensured he was able to deal with a torrent of racial abuse.
Where players would be forgiven for not performing at their best under such circumstances, Garth responded with goals and accolades.
Winning two FA Cups and a UEFA Cup with Tottenham Hotspur, the Jamaican-born television speaker has had a vibrant career. He was the first black player to score in an FA Cup final and following his retirement became the first black chairman of the Professional Footballers' Association (PFA). Known for his regular BBC Football Focus and Match of the Day appearances, passionate pundit Garth Crooks is held in high regard. He is a wonderful addition to your gala dinner or award ceremony.
A naturally gifted footballer, Rio Ferdinand was arguably the most talented English defender of a generation.
Playing for West Ham United and earning 'Hammer of the Year' in only his second season (1997/98), Rio earned an England call-up at just 19 years old. Soon a number of Premier League clubs were fighting to secure his services. Leeds United won that race and he proved an inspired signing for Leeds, helping them to a dramatic Champions League Semi-Finals place.
A move to Manchester United followed where Rio would form part of a formidable defensive unit alongside Nemanja Vidic for the next five years. Winning six Premier League titles, two League Cups and a Champions League trophy during his stint at the club, Rio is a stalwart of the game.
A constant of Rio's career has been his incredible leadership skills and under Sir Alex Ferguson, Rio was heavily relied upon to be one of the leaders in the team. His passion has also inspired many and is regularly evidenced through his television appearances, covering the likes of the World Cup and Match of the Day with the BBC.
Having overcome adversity both during his career and outside of it, with the tragic loss of his wife, Rio is one of the most loved and inspirational football speakers in the world.
