A qualified helicopter pilot, Les had a memorable partnership at Newcastle with Alan Shearer and only a succession of injuries stopped him making a bigger impact in the Premier League.
Paddington-born Les scored 184 League goals on his have-boots-will-travel journey, and netted five goals in 17 England appearances. Ferdinand was a graceful yet powerful centre-forward idolized at every club where he took his shooting boots: Hayes, Queen’s Park Rangers, Brentford, Besiktas (Turkey), Newcastle United, Tottenham, West Ham, Leicester City, Bolton and Reading.
Nicknamed ‘Sir’ Les, he was made an MBE in the Queen’s 2005 Birthday Honors List.
These days he is an important member of Harry Redknapp’s coaching staff at White Hart Lane, working closely with the Tottenham strikers.
He is a fine raconteur with lots of amazing stories to share. Les is the cousin of Premier League players Rio and Anton Ferdinand.
