About Francis Benali MBE

The former professional footballer and coach spent the majority of his 20 years playing career with Southampton Football Club. After 389 games with Southampton Francis, or Franny as he’s more affectionately known, is still a fans’ favourite today, thanks to his commitment to the club, hardworking attitude and ferocious, full-blooded tackles. Many fans will remember Franny playing through injuries to help the team, including famously playing on with a broken arm!

Since retiring, Franny has remained a big part of Southampton Football Club, working regularly with Saints Foundation and becoming a Club Ambassador. Benali’s knowledge and experience within the game has seen him regularly on TV, the radio or in the papers offering his thoughts and opinions on footballing matters. In recent years, Franny has been in the media spotlight for different reasons, completing 3 ultra-endurance challenges, all in aid of Cancer Research UK.
