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.

In 2017 Heskey was signed up by Playon as one of their ambassadors. Founded by former England international Viv Anderson Playon is a global network of sports professionals which provide ex-players with an opportunity to keep earning and maintaining their value in retirement.

The network also assists with some of the main issues ex-professionals are faced with when they retire from professional sports such as depression and anxiety.

In the same year Heskey represented England in Star Sixes, a six-a-side indoor international tournament at the O2 in London featuring some of the world’s most iconic footballers.
