Trevor Francis will always be known as the ‘Million Pound Man’, the first player to fetch such a fee on the transfer market. He was a well-respected international footballer and club manager, and his tales of England dressing rooms and playing under the legendary Brian Clough, as well as under Graeme Souness, makes him a popular corporate speaker and TV pundit.
He spent 8 years at Birmingham City notching up well over 100 League goals, and, already a regular in the England squad, his profilic attack and pace impressed Nottingham Forest manager Brian Clough enough to smash the transfer record and usher in the era of seven figure signings.
Trevor helped Forest to the European Cup in 1979 before leaving for Manchester City and then onto Sampdoria. He was one of the few English players to succeed in Serie A, described by some as the ‘best Englishman to have played in Italy’.
Trevor has gone on to manage a number of Premier League sides including Sheffield Wednesday and Birmingham City.
