TF90M Exclusive Interview with the Foreign Secretary David Miliband

When not representing Britain abroad, the United Kingdom’s Foreign Secretary David Miliband likes nothing more than watching his beloved Arsenal play football.

TF90M Exclusive Interview with German Footballing Legend Lothar Matthäus

The former German international holds the record for playing in the most World Cups and is also the most capped player of all time for his nation. In 1990 the midfielder was named European Footballer of the Year and World Soccer Player of the Year after captaining West Germany to victory in the 1990 World Cup. One year later, he was also named the first ever FIFA World Player of the Year.

Having played with some of the greatest ever players during a distinguished career involving spells at Bayern Munich, Borussia Mönchengladbach and Inter Milan, Matthäus is considered one of the best German players ever. Having been extremely successful, the only major honour which eluded Matthäus was the Champions League; he was part of the Bayern Munich side who infamously lost to Manchester United in 1999 though Matthäus was contoversially subbed in the 86th minute whilst Bayern were still leading 1-0.

 

Matthäus who was described by Diego Maradona as “ the best rival I've ever had” is now the manager of Israeli side Maccabi Netanya FC after spells coaching Rapid Wien, Partizan Belgrade and the Hungary national side. Maccabi Netanya FC are one of the leading forces in Israeli football since the arrival of Mr. Daniel Jammer, who acquired the club in 2006 and brought Lothar Matthäus to Israel this summer.

TF90M Exclusive Interview with England's Greatest Cricketer Sir Ian Botham

Arguably England’s greatest ever cricketer and perhaps even England's greatest sporting hero Sir Ian Botham captured the hearts of the public during the 1981 Ashes series. Not only was Botham a fantastic all-rounder at cricket he was also a very talented footballer.

At a very early age Botham had to make the choice between playing professional football and cricket. He elected cricket and the rest entered folklore, now he is considered as one of the greats of the game having captained his country and set numerous records along the way. However during his career, in an attempt to recover fitness following an injury, Botham joined Scunthorpe United FC. Playing as a centre forward, he made 11 appearances for the club in the Football League in the year 1980. Prior to his time at Scunthorpe, Botham enjoyed a spell at Yeovil Town FC. Notably Botham is also an avid Chelsea fan. 

Since his retirement from the game, Botham has also been a prominent fundraiser for charity undertaking numerous long-distance charity walks. His efforts have raised more than ten million pounds, with the charity Leukaemia Research among the causes to benefit.
