John will be discussing his own personal drive and determination, the importance of teamwork and leadership, as well as sharing insights into the real premier league and international football lifestyle.

The winner of two First Division titles and two FA Cups, John also set a new record for black players of the time by recording 79 appearances for the national side.

Making his debut for Liverpool in August 1987, John enjoyed a 2-1 victory over Arsenal and went on to prove his exceptional talent as a winger during his first season. John had joined one of the best performing clubs of the era, with the side only losing two matches in Barnes’ first season, John rose to the challenge and proved his place as an instrumental element of Liverpool’s team chemistry.
