Trevor Francis

Football coach and the first £1m player

Trevor Francis

Trevor Francis achieved many milestones in his career that have left his name indelibly written in the history books of football.

As a player and coach of many clubs, Trevor has experiences a-plenty that have made him an in-demand motivational speaker throughout the UK. A member of the English Hall of Fame, Trevor is probably best known for being the first football player to cost £1m. He was bought from Birmingham City by Brian Clough in 1979 to play for Nottingham Forest and went on to score the winner for the team in the European Cup final the same year.

Among the other teams that Francis has played for are Detroit Express in the USA, Wollongong City in Australia and Sampdoria in Italy. He has also coached several teams over a 10-year period, including QPR, Sheffield Wednesday and Birmingham City.

Despite suffering a heart attack that was undiagnosed for 12 hours, Trevor Francis has gone on to become a highly successful football pundit for TV and radio and a motivational speaker who mixes incredible stories with history-making experiences and a sense of humour.
