Where is Brian Deane now?

Scorer of the first Premier League goal in 1992, Brian Deane eventually retired from playing in 2007 after his third spell at Sheffield United.

Since retiring from playing he has been working as a sports consultant for Blacks Solicitors LLP in Leeds.

Keen to get into football management, Deane joined Norwegian team Sarpsborg 08 FF as manager in 2012.

Deane had a reasonably successful time at Sarpsborg, narrowly avoiding relegation in his first season with the club but finishing mid-table and reaching the semi-finals of the Norwegian Cup in his second season.

Brian Deane left Sarpsborg 08 FF in November 2014 to pursue a management position in England.

He returned to England and founded the IAFE (International Academy for Football and Education), based in Leeds, which aimed to provide a professional football club training programme combined with a university degree but this has since folded.

In September 2015, Deane made a return to Sheffield United as an academy coach working with strikers across the age groups.
