Known as a Premier League cult hero and the star of films such as X-Men, Snatch, and Gone In 60 Seconds, Vinnie's versatile career is as impressive as it is captivating.


On the football pitch, Vinnie was renowned for his aggressive and direct style of play, but he was more than just a tough tackler. Having played for clubs like Chelsea, Leeds and Wimbledon, the midfielder from Watford amassed an impressive 184 games in the Premier League.
