John Barnes represents football in clash with cricket, tennis and rugby
Jamaica boss takes on other sporting has-beens
Ex-Liverpool and England star John Barnes is football’s representative in a series of head-to-head clashes organised by Mars. Barnes will face tennis player Pat Cash, cricketer Darren Gough and rugby’s Austin Healey as the old pros play each others’ sports.
Bigging his chances up, Barnes said: “As a former footballer and now manager I’m the best equipped for this job. Not only can I play all the sports at the highest level I can also help select and motivate my team to win – can Cash, Healey or Gough really do that?”
Probably not. And Celtic fans will suggest neither can you, John!
