Alan Hansen is one of the most successful British soccer players of all time. He is the only player to have won all of the honours available at club level at least twice, and captained the Liverpool side to an historic double in 1986.
As a teenager, Hansen turned down the opportunity to study at the University of Aberdeen in order to join his older brother John at Partick Thistle. After breaking into the first team at Thistle, Hansen was watched by top clubs, eventually joining Liverpool, making his debut in September 1977. During Hansen's illustrious playing career for Liverpool, his winner's medals included eight league titles, three European Cups, two FA Cups and four League Cups. On a sadder note, Hansen was among many Liverpool players left distraught by the Hillsborough disaster, visiting the injured in hospital and attending 12 funerals.
A knee injury ended his playing career in 1991, but a keen tactical understanding of the game, wedded to natural charm and an ability to communicate in a down-to-earth fashion has made him a firm favourite on BBC TVs Match of the Day, Grandstand, Sportsnight and Sky Sports. Alan also contributes a weekly newspaper column on football and is an established Motivational and After-dinner Speaker. Away from football analysis, he is a keen golfer.
