Where is Damien Duff now?
The bane of many a right-back during his time in the Premier League, Damien Duff retired from playing in 2016 at the age of 37 after a spell back in his native Ireland with Shamrock Rovers.
Duff’s time at Shamrock Rovers was unfortunately cut short when he realised that he was struggling to contribute for the side and ultimately decided that enough was enough.

However, Duff’s passion for the game hasn’t diminished and he keeps himself in shape with regular 5-a-side games with his friends.
He has also played on the legends circuit in an indoor 5-a-side tournament alongside footballing greats Gianluca Zambrotta and Gaizka Mendieta.
Duff has also worked as a pundit and match analyst on Irish television station RTE although he has admitted that it is completely out of his comfort zone.
After assisting with the coaching of the Shamrock Rovers under 15’s side, Damien Duff along with other former Irish stars Kenny Cunningham, Mark Kinsella, Keith Andrews and Stephen McPhail were hired by the Football Association of Ireland to work within the FAI Emerging Talent Programme.
In August 2016, Duff joined the coaching staff of the Shamrock Rovers first team working mostly with the team’s strikers.
In February 2017, Damien Duff was named head coach of the Shamrock Rovers u15’s academy side and will combine his duties with his existing first team coaching role.
