Alan Smith is today a well known pundit, and the word of the former England and Leicester forward, spending most of his career at Arsenal , winning top honours and being capped 13 times, scoring twice.
In an interesting interview, he gives his honest opinion on Leicester and their current situation. He also reflects on Jamie Vardy and the recent rumours about him turning down a possible offer from Saudi Arabia.
The 60 year old Alan Smith played at Leicester from 1982 to 1987, adding up 200 league games, scoring 76 goals in those games. He was well known for his partnership with Gary Lineker as the two build a grand strikers duo as Leicester came back up and established themselves in the top flight during the years they played together up front.
He was signed from non-league club Alvechurch and possibly the last shrewd move of many done by Jock Wallace, who just weeks later left the club and Gordon Milne brought the partnership between the to former Leicester greats to life.
Gary Lineker and Alan Smith both turned to tv and broadcasting after leaving the game and never seen acting in roles of coaching or management.
One iconic moment to remember was the last ever England game both played in. The 1992 Euro’s, against Sweden, Smith replacing Lineker in 2nd half.
