The title of Emile Heskey’s autobiography is ‘Even Heskey Scored’, a sardonic nod to the misperception that he was anything other than a highly talented player, a prolific goal scorer and, most of all, a winner. In part one, Emile describes his ‘strange’ personality – painfully shy in the dressing room, super-confident on the field of play. He explains how he helped his beloved Leicester City escape financial meltdown and paints us a vivid behind-the-scenes picture of life at the Foxes training ground under Martin O’Neill, when being forced to wear the dreaded, smelly, yellow jersey was every player’s worst nightmare.
