Lee Dixon

Lee Dixon began his career at Burnley, making his professional debut for them in 1982. Spells at Chester City, Bury and Stoke City followed before he joined Arsenal in January 1988. Dixon's tenure at Arsenal saw him collect four league champion's medals, three FA Cup winner's medals and a UEFA Cup Winners' Cup medal. A key part of the 'famous five' defence, the right-back was named in the PFA Team of the Year twice, for the seasons 1989-90 and 1990-91. Dixon was capped 22 times for England, scoring once. Since his playing retirement, Dixon has carved out a reputation as a sharp football analyst, firstly at the BBC before joining ITV in the summer of 2012. He has been Betfair's football ambassador since 2011.
