Kalvin Phillips

Kalvin Phillips


My guest today is a footballer.

Born in Leeds and raised in poverty by his mother and grandmother while his father spent recurring stints in prison, he began his professional career as a midfielder at Leeds United, where he was dubbed the “Yorkshire Pirlo”. In 2020, he started every game for England at the Euros.

A big money move to Manchester City followed, but injury has meant nearly no match time. 

Gareth Southgate says: “He is a super player”, but “inevitably it’s not a situation that can continue forever.”

His best friend says: “[He’s] never let the football, the fame, the money, get on top of him.” 

My guest today is Kalvin Phillips.
