Classic Big Interview: Mark Noble

Here’s another chance to hear my interview with Mark Noble from season two.

Imagine being a childhood fanatic of your local team and then, as an adult, leading them out of the tunnel to glory. West Ham United captain Mark has lived this dream.

As an England under-21, Mark scored TWO penalty kicks in an epic shootout against Holland, an act of taking responsibility typical of this born guv’nor. His philosophy is to lead by example, by always giving 100%. Off the field, Mark also leads by example. An East End boy through and through, he has never forgotten where he came from, co-launching a legacy foundation centred on social housing to help his community.

You’ll also hear about the incredible night when the Hammers said goodbye to their famous Upton Park home by beating Manchester United. And how Mark was eligible to play for Ireland but because his heart was with England – and also because he didn’t want to deny an Irish kid his chance – he chose the Three Lions jersey. Which really is the mark of this noble man.

You do football proud, Mr Noble.
