Tony Carr MBE is an English football coach and the current Director of Youth Development at West Ham United FC and is recognised as one of the most influential figures in English football.

A former graduate of the academy himself, whose footballing career was cut short by injury, he joined the club’s staff as a youth coach in 1973. Since then in his tenure as director, as of 2010, Carr is credited with producing talent which has earned an estimated £80 million in transfer fees for the club, while the 23 man England squad for the 2010 FIFA World Cup contained no less than seven players trained by Carr – Rio Ferdinand, Frank Lampard, Joe Cole, Michael Carrick, Jermain Defoe, Glen Johnson and John Terry.
