Born: 1957

Position: Midfielder

Biography: Hoddle's appointment as Chelsea's player-boss in 1993 was supposed to mark a new era in club history. He had a non contract spell at the club playing for the reserves in 1991 and although he had seen better days as a player, he still displayed some of the skills which made him one of the most gifted players in English football history. He employed a 3-5-2 system, which had served him well at Swindon Town, playing himself as the spare defender. The club qualified for Europe in all of his seasons in charge and had reached the 1994 FA Cup Final by the time he was head-hunted by The FA to over as boss of the national team. Had a three year spell in charge of England which ended controversially after comment about disabled people in a newspaper interview. He has also managed Swindon Town, Southampton, Tottenham Hotspur and Wolverhampton Wanderers. He now runs his own Soccer Academy in Jerez, Spain.
