Grobbelaar amassed a huge amount of winner’s medals during his time with Liverpool including six League titles, three FA Cups, three League Cups and a European Cup during a 10-year period in which Liverpool dominated English football.

Upon retiring from playing, Grobbelaar moved to South Africa to work as a coach.

In 1999 he took over as manager of South African side Seven Stars, taking them from the relegation zone to fourth place in the final table before moving to league rivals Hellenic in 2001 with whom he also saved from relegation.

Grobbelaar also had coaching spells at South African sides Supersport United, Manning Rangers and Umtata Bush Bucks as well as two brief spells as the Zimbabwe national side coach.

In July 2014, Grobbelaar joined Canadian side Ottawa Fury as their goalkeeping coach joining up with former Liverpool team mate Kenny Dalglish’s son Paul. He also coaches the keepers within the club’s academy.
