A BRADFORD City legend has apologised for getting the launch date of his upcoming autobiography wrong.

Chris Kamara, who played for and managed the Bantams, will release his new book, ‘Kammy: My Unbelievable Life’ this autumn.

He initially joined Bradford City as a player, making 23 appearances and scoring three goals during the 1994/95 season. He then took over as manager at Valley Parade in 1995 until he left to join Stoke City as boss in 1998.


The footballer-turned-broadcaster, famous for his ‘Unbelievable Jeff’ catchphrase, originally said his book was out in October. However, his book’s launch date has now been revealed as November 9.

Mr Kamara posted on X, formerly known as Twitter: “My apologies for getting the launch date wrong, but I’m sure it's not a surprise.”

Mr Kamara was awarded an MBE for services to football, anti-racism and charity in King Charles III’s New Year’s Honours list this year.

He received his honour from the Prince of Wales at an official ceremony at Windsor Castle in March. 

Mr Kamara revealed last year that he has apraxia of speech, a disorder that affects the way a person connects speech messages from their brain to their mouth.
