Throughout his career Heskey was often unfairly criticised for his lack of goals as a striker. but he was often played as a target man who job was to hold the ball up for other natural finishers.

An example of his effectiveness in this role was during his time at Liverpool where he played alongside Robbie Fowler and Michael Owen who had his best-ever scoring record during Heskey’s four seasons at the club.

Since retiring, Heskey has assisted with the coaching at Bolton Wanderer’s as well as a spot of media work for Premier League TV and Sky Sports.

He is also patron for The Supercar Academy which specialises in world-class advanced driver coaching and education programmes to reduce driver’s risk of damage, injury or incident whilst driving on public roads. 

Heskey is also one of a number of former footballers who have helped develop a cloud-based football coaching and lifestyle resource called Scorecher.

He has said that there are currently no plans to take his UEFA coaching badges as he is busy with other interests which include watching his two sons play within the Manchester City youth academy.

Heskey was a member of the successful PlayOn soccer sevens side that won the Masters plate at the 2017 Hong Kong Masters.

In July 2017 Emile Heskey will be representing England in Star Sixes, a new six-a-side indoor international tournament at the O2 in London featuring some of the world’s most iconic footballers.
