The 5-minute Interview: David Seaman, Ex-footballer
'I enjoy fishing. My best ever catch was a 36lb carp'
Tuesday 08 July 2008
The former England and Arsenal goalkeeper won three league titles, four FA Cups and a Cup Winners' Cup. He is involved with the Bobby Moore Fund, a bowel cancer charity, and this month will be hosting a golf tournament in the Algarve to raise money for the fund
If I weren't talking to you right now I'd be...
Practising for the tournament. There are plenty of celebrities and ex-footballers taking part.
A phrase I use far too often...
I'm always calling people "mate".
The most surprising thing that happened to me was...
Getting a second chance in football by signing for Peterborough after being released by Leeds.
I wish people would take more notice of...
Bowel cancer, I lost my mother-in-law to it 18 years ago, and it's why I got involved with the Bobby Moore Fund.
A common misperception of me is...
People think I'm laid back but there's a lot going on in my head.
I am not a politician but...
I would like to see the tax rate reduced.
I'm good at...
Golf and fishing. I usually do both at least once a week. The biggest fish I've ever caught was a 36lb carp.
The ideal night out is...
At the theatre in London, I particularly like musicals, followed by a nice meal.
You know me as a footballer but in another life I'd have been...
I would love to have been a golfer or any individual sportsman.
The best age to be is...
At the moment I'm 44 and life is great.
In a nutshell, my philosophy is this:
Never give up.
