Alan Hansen's Biography

Alan Hansen was one of the most successful British football players of all time, until a knee injury ended his playing career in 1991. In 1990, he became the first outfield player to win English league titles in three different decades. He is the only person to have won all of the honours available at club level at least twice and captained the Liverpool side to a historic double in 1986.

Since his retirement from football Alan has forged a successful career in media. Thanks to his keen tactical understanding of the game, Alan is now a face of BBC television’s Match of the Day along with Gary Lineker. He will step down from this position after the 2014 World Cup.

He has, for the past decade been the BBC’s main pundit for football coverage, gaining a reputation as a rational, authoritative analyst. Alan has presented numerous documentaries on sport, including on the implications of rising salaries for top footballers and how young players are led through the system to professional level. He also reported for The Masters Tournament.

Alan writes a weekly newspaper column for The Daily Telegraph, and contributes to the BBC’s sports website with football issues.
