I never got to the point when I felt like running away from it all.
– Jamie Redknapp
We need to win something for the fans because they have been patient and very understanding and we owe them.
But I just want to be known for my football.
In the past I’ve had a bad injury, and then struggled when I’ve got back because I’ve been unfit.
It’s important we win and because of the players we have we should win some matches in style.
I enjoy spending time at home or going out for a quiet meal in a restaurant.
I’m a footballer, that’s my job and that’s all I want to be known for.
I’m looking out for myself, but I’m looking out for my dad, too.
I’m enjoying myself this year and for once I’m not chasing my fitness.
I have always passed the ball and worked on that part of my game.
Sometimes, you just get a label and it sticks.
People ask me why I keep getting injured but I have just had to accept it is one of those things that happen.
As I say, you get labelled. To stop all that, I’ve got to win things – that’s the only way you make your mark.
From a personal point of view I want some medals because that is what you aim for when you start out playing.
There is pressure every day as a footballer.
I’ve had two or three injuries when with England and it’s been a bit bizarre.
I am a positive person and do not allow things to get on top of me.
At no point was my career under threat, so I always knew that I would get back into action.
You want to win things and I am at a club where we have the players to do that.
The way I am, I like to look forward instead of looking back.
I know I’m 25 now, but there’s still that little lad inside me who likes his dad there to see him.
But there’s no point in looking back and saying I was unlucky.
You have to be professional and think about the future.
I haven’t achieved as much as I should have done in my career.
People always seem to be interested in my private life because I’m married to a pop star.
But what goes on in my life outside of the game should be my business.
