The former England international striker now has a very different profession… and even invented an instrument
DION Dublin had a great career as a footballer, playing for England and appearing for several top clubs including Man United.
But in recent years he has turned his attention to property, helping to present Homes Under The Hammer on BBC One with Martin Roberts and Martel Maxwell. Here’s what you need to know about Dion…
Isn’t Dion Dublin meant to be a footballer?
He is! Well, he was anyway until 2008 when he retired – he is 48 now.
But in a superb career at the top level of English football, he earned a move to Manchester United in 1992 from lowly Cambridge United.
A broken leg meant a scuppered time under Sir Alex Ferguson during which time the club signed the one and only Eric Cantona, so a move to Coventry followed in 1994.
A prolific spell there followed, and then he moved to Aston Villa in 1998 in a year he won four England caps under Glenn Hoddle.
In 2004 he moved to Leicester, by which time he was often playing in defence rather than attack – and spells at Celtic and Norwich followed before his career finished having scored 111 Premier League goals.
