Chris Sutton: The Making of Me

If things had turned out a little differently for Chris Sutton, he would have ended up pushing pens and paperclips at Norfolk County Council instead of terrorising defenders in Scotland and England for over a decade.

Chris uses the word “character” a lot and, in this Big Interview, we explore how his was forged - from an initial rejection from Norwich City to his dad’s boot camp approach to physical fitness.

We also discuss his experiences as a promising young cricketer and his particularly uncompromising youth team coach at Norwich.

There are stories about Sri Lankan cricketer Ravi Pushpakumara and Andy Theodosiou’s brutal tackles. Chris also explains how to mark Alan Shearer as a centre-half and why he would not want Efan Ekoku in his five-a-side team.

This is a side to Chris Sutton that not many people have heard before.
