Darren Bent - transfers, training and having good mates
With us today is former England footballer Darren Bent. Darren first played for Ipswich and went on to sign for Charlton, Spurs, Sunderland, Villa and Derby amongst others. He's now a broadcaster for Talk Sport.
Darren was an England standard long jumper as a schoolboy - but when he signed for Ipswich at 14 he followed his passion. He tells us how he learnt by watching lots of football on TV with Ian Wright one of his biggest influences.
Ellen asks him what his first big purchase was when he became a professional - and we get a great answer!
He reveals his training methods and his big belief in repetition to succeed. And also talks about the loyal friends who've supported him along the way...with the same friends now as when he was a kid.
We'd love to hear from you - find us @trackandballpod
