Michael Gray

Twelve Year Career at Sunderland FC

Football speaker and ex-England player Michael Gray is probably best known for his 12 year long stay at his home club Sunderland and, since his retirement, has gone on to establish himself as a sports speaker and pundit working for the BBC.

A prominent football speaker Michael Gray is known for his Northern pride; his choice to stay loyal to Sunderland when offers from other teams – including an offer from Manchester United early on in his career – came calling.

Before retiring in 2010 Gray had won three caps for England and, after leaving Sunderland in 2003, went on to play for Celtic, Blackburn and Wolverhampton. Now a well-known football speaker Michael Gray travels up and down the UK discussing football tactics, styles and topics. Alongside his work as a live event sports speaker Gray also works as a pundit for television and radio productions and, as well as working for the BBC, has worked for talk SPORT.

Outside his work as a football speaker Gray is notorious for his outspoken and fiery personality; at the height of his career Gray was known for openly opposing managers and arguing with team mates. As an after dinner speaker Gray harnesses this outspoken aspect of his personality and channels it into passionate and insightful sports speaker presentations.
