Chris Kamara

Bookmark and Share


Chris Kamara was born in Middlesbrough to a father of Sierra Leone roots. After serving with the British Royal Navy, Kamara joined Portsmouth in 1975, beginning a professional footballing career that saw him move between nine clubs, scoring 71 goals in 641 league appearances.
As Chris gained a reputation as a hard man player, this continued into his life as a manager, resulting with him being occasionally chastised! Kamara spent short spells as manager of Stoke City and Bradford City, nearly relegating the former and the latter being the club he ended his playing career with. He steered the Bantams to promotion in the 1995-96 season through the play-offs, and is very highly thought of at Valley Parade.
Kamara features on various Sky Sports'  shows and provides additional commentary on some of Sky's televised matches. Perhaps he is most renowned for the Soccer Saturday programme, where he usually appears over live video link providing brief updates on the match he is watching. He also guests on Soccer AM where he brings live link ups hours before games from various stadiums and inevitably gives away both teams' line ups and tactics. He is often known to get overexcited and exclaim "Unbelievable, Jeff!" to host Jeff Stelling, a phrase which has become his trademark catchphrase. The pair own a racehorse with the same name.
On 1 April 2007, as an April Fools joke, Kamara announced that his time as presenter of Goals on Sunday had come to an end, and that he had signed a contract to become first-team manager at Bradford City - while not earning as much money as he did with Sky, he claimed that he was doing it for the love, not the money.
