Arsenal Invincibles star unrecognisable as he spars in boxing ring with 18-cap international CEO of his own business | The Sun

AN ARSENAL Invincibles star looks completely different as he's swapped the pitch to become CEO of a business.

The ex-defender made more than 250 appearances in English football with more than 50 of those coming for the Gunners.


He was part of the famous team that went unbeaten in 2003-04 having come through the academy in N7.

And he played alongside the likes of Patrick Vieira, Robert Pires, Dennis Bergkamp and Thierry Henry.

The bulk of his game-time in an Arsenal shirt came in his final couple of years in North London before he eventually left in search of more regular opportunities.

The Leytonstone-born ace also won 18 caps for his country.

And the mystery footballer is of course… Justin Hoyte.

Hoyte played 68 games in total for his boyhood club, although only one of those came during the Invincibles campaign.

And even that was a late substitute at Birmingham.

But the right-back did win the FA Youth Cup with the Gunners and started the 2007 League Cup final defeat to Chelsea.

Hoyte left Arsenal in 2018 to sign for Middlesbrough and also played for Millwall and Dagenham & Rebridge before retiring in 2018 following a spell in the US with FC Cincinnati.

He was eligible to play for England as well as for Trinidad and Tobago, and was capped 18 times for the England under-21 team.

But in 2013, Hoyte made himself available for selection for the Trinidad and Tobago national team, and ended up winning 18 caps for the Soca Warriors.

Since retiring he moved away from football and is the CEO of his own business that he started last year.

The company is called Future Champions Sports Group Limited with the 38-year-old the only active director.

And in the video Hoyte posted to Instagram last year of himself sparring, he looks different having bulked up from his playing days.

He looked fit as a fiddle as he was put through his paces by his trainer, proving that he might have hung up his boots some five years ago, but he's still in great shape.
