In the first part of a new series, meet Jonny Marsh – the chef fuelling some of the world’s top players
“Every chef wants to take over the world,” says Jonny Marsh, who has visited all four corners of it during a career spent cooking for some of football’s leading megastars.
A a former apprentice of the world-renowned Raymond Blanc, Jonny turned his back on the restaurant business to combine his passion for cooking and his love of the game, carving out a career that has seen him prepare meals for John Terry, Paul Pogba, Jordan Pickford, Harry Winks and a whole host of other Premier League stars.
He even prepared Christmas lunch for Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne, who Jonny revealed was “initially adamant he didn’t want a chef.” Four years later, Jonny is still still with him.
