Then: Republic of Ireland youth-international Stephen Carr was one of the more talented members of the Tottenham Hotspur squad. The attacking full-back had been at the club since his schoolboy days and, as of the 1996-1997 season, was a first-team regular. Carr’s talent was such that he rewarded with a senior debut at the age of just 16. Was renowned for his strong defensive game and willingness to support the likes of David Ginola in the Spurs attack.

Now: Carr currently runs several clubs in the Spanish hotspot of Marbella. According to reports, his bars welcome some of the biggest celebrities around during the summer seasons. In terms of his Tottenham career, Carr went from strength to strength, becoming one of the most talented full-backs in Europe. For his performances in the 2001-2001 season and 2002-2003 season, he was rewarded with a place in the PFA Team of the Year. Despite being linked with a move to Manchester United, Carr eventually left Tottenham for Newcastle in the summer of 2004. He stayed at the club for four seasons before finishing his career with Birmingham City, where he captained the club to League Cup victory in the 2010-2011 season.
