FOR an Irish footballer who never played any higher than England's third tier, Freddie Murray has some pretty impressive names in the contacts list of his mobile phone. 

The 38-year-old no longer works in the football world as such, instead focusing on his physiotherapy company where clients, from the sporting sphere but also the entertainment industry, put in a call for him to come over and make their aches go away.

"I do have some famous names in my phone, it's still surreal when I am speaking to X or Y but at the same time they're just normal people, I treat every client the same, it's just Freddie Murray treating a client," says Murray, a Tipperary native who turned to physio when his playing career in England was ended by injury at the age of 28 and now runs the London-based Remedy clinic which he founded.
