Clarke Carlisle

Where is Clarke Carlisle now?

A solid figure at the heart of Burnley’s defence, Clarke Carlisle spent one full season in the Premier League with Burnley during the 2009-2010 season making 29 appearances.

Carlisle retired from playing in May 2013 after a spell in the lower leagues with Northampton Town and went onto have a full time career in the media as a co-commentator and pundit across various channels.

Widely regarded as one of the most intelligent modern day footballers, Clarke Carlisle was chairman of the management committee of the PFA from 2010 to 2013.

Clarke Carlise released his autobiography You Don’t Know Me, But in 2013.

On December 22nd 2014, Clarke Carlisle made the headlines when he was left fighting for his life after being hit by a lorry. Fortunately he made a full recovery and returned home six weeks later.

In February 2015 it was revealed that Carlisle had in fact been suffering from severe depression for the previous 18 months and the accident was a suicide attempt.

The ex footballer has since sought treatment for his depression and has spoken out to encourage others to get help.

He has also launched his own mental health charity called the Clarke Carlisle Foundation for Dual Diagnosis.

Now well on the road to recovery and remarried, Carlisle now does a lot of public speaking engagements as well as working at the University and College of Football Business at Manchester City’s Etihad stadium, where he puts together workshops and seminars for business executives.
