  • Marlon Harewood is the co-owner of AC13 Premier, a car modification business
  • The former West Ham striker deals with some of sport’s most famous stars
  • His client list includes the likes of Harry Kane, Robert Pires and Carl Froch
  • Harewood claimed he would consider a return to football if offered the chance
  • He has completed his UEFA coaching badges and wants to manage in the future

On the wall inside the Nottingham garage where Marlon Harewood now spends most of his time are signed shirts from his clients.
