Gary Pallister

Add To Speakers List

A former Manchester United legend who won four Premier League titles, three FA Cups and one League Cup, Gary Pallister is a former centre-half who played a crucial role in Sir Alex Ferguson’s side in the mid-1990s. As well as this, he started and ended his career with Middlesbrough, and won 22 England caps before retiring in 2001. Nowadays, he can be found working as one of the most recognisable football speakers around, using his platform to share spellbinding stories from a glittering career at the very top of the game.

Gary’s career began with boyhood club Middlesbrough, making his debut for the club as a 19-year-old in 1984, he played more than 150 times for the club and his no-nonsense role at the heart of the Boro defence played a vital role as they earned a promotion to the top flight in 1988. His commanding presence caught the attention of some of the country’s biggest clubs, and in 1989 he moved to Manchester United for £2.3million. At the time, this was a national record for a defender, and the second-highest fee ever paid by a British club. Pally, as he was affectionately known by teammates, had huge pressure on his shoulders due to the fee paid, but it didn’t phase him. On all of his football speaking occasions, he can discuss what it was like making the step up to one of the world’s biggest football clubs.

He soon forged a fantastic partnership with fellow centre back Steve Bruce, and it was this that helped the club win the 1993 Premier League title – the first time the club had won the league since the 1960s. It was a sure sign of things to come, and he went on to win countless honours at Old Trafford. When hired as a football speaker, Gary can give a unique insight into what it was like playing for the Red Devils at this time and working under the leadership of the legendary Sir Alex Ferguson.

In 1998 he returned to Middlesbrough to see out the remainder of his career before calling it a day in 2001. Since then, he’s worked in the media as a pundit and commentator for BBC and ITV Sport, providing fresh insight into the latest matches. As one of the most in-demand football speakers around, at all of his events, he’s able to combine anecdotes from his own career while offering opinions on current affairs within the sport today.
