My name is Ronnie Matthews and I am a professional footballer.
I know what you’re thinking. Flashy, all the clothes, loads of money, birds, Jaguar XJ with the five litre engine and all the trimmings.
But there’s more to me than that.
In my time in football I’ve been at the top and I’ve been to the bottom. Beneath the bottom, if I’m honest. I’ve learned a hell of a lot about life, about who I am, about what really matters.
I realise now there’s more important things than how much you’re making, how big your house is, how big your dog is, how many Nuts cover girls phone-numbers you’ve got in your phone (six, seven if you count Jordan and Katie Price as two people which to be fair to Katie she has earned the right to do).
I want to experience just more than being a footballer. I want to learn. And I want to teach, as well, about the stuff I’ve done, the mistakes I’ve made, the lessons I have picked up along the way.
This blog is part of me doing that. I would love to hear your comments about it, so get in touch. Peace.
