Emile Heskey is the head of soccer development of Leicester City Women.

The former English professional soccer player made over 500 appearances in the EFL and Premier League. 

Moreover, in his 18-year playing career, he represented England at the national level. He played for the Australian A-League club Newcastle Jets for 2 years.

Heskey completed spells for several top-flight clubs in England, including Liverpool, Aston Villa, and Birmingham City.

During his professional career, he played for seven different clubs, starting his youth career in Leicester.

While at Leicester, he climbed the ranks, making his first-team debut at the age of 17 in the Premier League.

Likewise, Emile won three Carabao Cups with his boyhood club, Leicester City.

Similarly, there is no denying that his stint at Liverpool was full of trophies, winning the FA Cup, Carabao Cup twice, FA Charity Shield, Europa Cup, and the UEFA Super Cup.

Heskey finally hung up his boots after Bolton released him when his contract expired at the end of the 2015-16 season.

Moreover, Emile and Chantelle were in a 12-year relationship before tying the knot. Together, they have four kids: two sons and two daughters.

Their sons, Jaden and Reigan, play for the Manchester City youth team. Likewise, their daughter Milanna and Mendez are into gymnastics.

Chantelle Tagoe is a scouser, a native of Liverpool born in the Toxeth part of the city.

She was working part-time as a waitress in a bar in Liverpool when she met Heskey.

Today, she owns a famous bar named Parea in Alderley Edge. However, this bar recently closed after accruing debts.

Despite this, Emile was formerly in a relationship with Kylee Pinsent. The two parted ways in 2004 after Kylee became aware of his two-year affair with Tageo.

Emile Heskey has three children from former partner Pinsent. 

A Tragic Incident

In July 2008, the then-fiancee of Emile Heskey was held at knifepoint by a gang of thieves in a frightening daylight robbery on the home of the England striker.

This incident occurred at their four-storey Edwardian mansion in Hale, Greater Manchester, while Emile was out at training.

Moreover, the raiders stole jewelry and took off in the soccer player’s £40,000 BMW 4×4.

As per reports, two men with Mancunian accents broke through the front door and threatened Tagoe with a knife. However, neither Tagoe nor their sons were harmed.

Likewise, Emile added, “Chantelle was obviously very upset and shaken by what happened and is still very, very distressed, but we both just want to put the ordeal behind us and get back to normality.”
