Former footballer turned pundit and a team-captain on the Sky 1 sports panel show, A League of Their Own. Jamie also lends his footballing expertise to Sky Sports and the Daily Mail as a pundit and columnist.
A midfielder, Jamie Redknapp played for England 17 times between 1995 and 1999. At club level, he scored 34 goals from 314 appearances in the domestic leagues. He won one major trophy during his career – the 1995 League Cup with Liverpool.
Jamie comes from a well-known footballing family. His father, Harry Redknapp, is the manager of Tottenham Hotspur. He is also a cousin of the Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard, and a nephew of former West Ham United coach Frank Lampard Senior.
Jamie was one of the last players to be signed by manager Kenny Dalglish before his surprising resignation on 22 February 1991 and later became the youngest Liverpool player to appear in European competition, at 18 years 120 days when making his Liverpool debut against Auxerre in the UEFA Cup on 23 October 1991, by which time Liverpool were being managed by Graeme Souness.
In the summer of 2004 Jamie was a pundit on Euro 2004 with the BBC, mainly based in the studio. Since retiring he had gone into punditry full-time and is a regular studio pundit on Sky Sports alongside former England teammate Gary Neville.
In 2005, Jamie launched a bi-monthly magazine with his wife Louise and former team-mate 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. He is also a team captain in the Sky1 show A League of Their Own.
Handsome, agreeable and courteous, Jamie Redknapp would make wonderful brand ambassador.
