Talking And Listening #2 – Rohan Ricketts


Episode two of Talking And Listening was a football themed one, as Rohan Ricketts  (@RohanRicketts) joined the show to talk about his career which has seen him play all over the world, from England to Moldova, Germany to Ecuador, India to Hungary. Rohan is also a football pundit, media mogul, and had a lot to say in a very revealing interview from a player still in the game.
