Updated: Nov 3, 2021

Lee Sharpe in Mansfield

Superstar Speakers were pleased to be involved with Mansfield Town FC's Evening with Lee Sharpe.

Ex- Torquay, Leeds United, Manchester United and England Football star was is charismatic best, entertaining the Stags fans in the 1861 suite. His stories of the glory days of Manchester United had the audience in stitches from Sir Alex Ferguson's reaction to the infamous Cantona Kung Fu kick, signing for Manchester United and watching the Class of 92 develop

Lee was a part of the Manchester United team of the early days of the Premier League, winning 3 League titles and 2 FA Cups, playing alongside the famous Class of 92 and earning 8 caps for England.

We managed to ask Lee a few questions about his life and career

We managed to ask Lee a few questions about his life and career

1. As part of the Superstar Speakers Manchester United Legends tour, who is your Man Utd legend and why

" My hero, or the best player played with, would be Bryan Robson for Manchester United because he was such a good leader who looked after us all. But actually ... I am an Aston Villa fan so my heroes as a kid were Gary Shaw and Tony Morley from the 1980/1981 European Cup Winning Team"

(Note: Villa won the cup in 1982)

2. What do you think to the current Manchester United team

"... Defiantly going through a transitional period, but they are showing signs of brilliance in certain games"

3. What did it mean to wear the Man Utd number 7 shirt?

"During the 1990/1991 season I was fortunate enough to wear the number 7 shirt, and I have to say it was by default! I actually scored goals in it, I played well in it. But the manager wouldn't give it to me, he gave me number 5... but i actually fell in love with number 5"

4. What is the proudest moment of your career?

" Its difficult to pick one really... signing for Man Utd...making my England debut at 19... winning the first Premier League win Man Utd...scoring a hat trick at Highbury, winning the Cup Winners Cup in Rotterdam against Barcelona...PFA Young Player of the Year (1991).

But if I had to pick a special moment I would probably say the backheel I scored against Barcelona at Old Trafford

5. What was better the Sharpie Shuffle or the Elvis Celebration?

"What it was, it upset the manager everytime I did it, so everytime I scored I did it, just to p*** the manager off!"
