We sat down with the iconic former Adelaide United defender, current Fox Sports Football pundit and 7 News Adelaide reporter Robbie Cornthwaite, to chronicle his fascinating career in an explosive interview. In this tremendously honest piece, 'Cornflakes' delves deep into how close he was to becoming a factory worker instead of a footballer, how manager John Kosmina rattled him as a youngster, going from zero to hero in that crazy fortnight against Kashima Antlers, how transfers generally work for Aussie players, his time playing abroad, scoring goals for the Socceroos, why it never went to plan for popular former coach Josep Gombau at Western Sydney Wanderers FC, the importance of acknowledging mental health for players in modern times and plenty more.
Throughout his professional football career, Robbie Cornthwaite experienced success, failure and heartbreak.Robbie was a household name in the A-League, a club legend with Adelaide United and former captain of Western Sydney Wanderers, he played in Asia for seven years, which few Australians have been able to do, and has represented his country at the highest level.Throughout the journey Robbie proved to be a resilient leader, dealing with setbacks, success, good and bad relationships with coaches and tough environments at home and in Korea and Malaysia.This, combined with his off-field challenges and experiences, has given Robbie a unique outlook on life, and what really matters. While playing overseas, he and his wife experienced the unthinkable - losing a child at birth.In the midst of the devastation and grief, Robbie gained perspective and learned that ultimately - win, lose or draw - football is just a game.Robbie shares his story, with insights on resilience, leadership, high performance and the transition into life after sport.Request to book Robbie Cornthwaite for guest speaking, marketing or media opportunities here.PickStar is the best place to book sports stars and personalities for any event, campaign or engagement you can imagine.Choose from over 1300 stars past and present, PickStar works fast with ANY budget.
