David Bentley

Where is David Bentley now?

A career which promised so much came to end in 2014 when David Bentley announced his retirement from the game at the age of 29.

In an honest assessment he said that he had fallen out of love with the game after he failed to find form after a big money move from Blackburn Rovers to Tottenham Hotspur in 2008.

Upon retiring from playing David Bentley moved his family out to Marbella in Spain where he invested in the La Sala group which own a number of restaurants and beach clubs along the Spanish costas.

Bentley’s former Tottenham Hotspur team mate Stephen Carr is also an invester in the group.

The group have also opened their first La Sala restaurant in the UK in Chigwell, Essex.

During his time in Spain, Bentley also worked with his interior designer wife Kimberley refurbishing houses.

In 2015 David Bentley featured in a job-swap documentary for an Irish television station where he trained and played with a Gaelic football side.

Bentley did very well, scoring three points in a game and impressing some of their more die-hard fans.

At the start of 2017, after spending three years in Spain, Bentley and his young family moved back to the UK so that Bentley can have more involvement with the Chigwell branch of the La Sala chain.

Bentley has also said that he will be getting into player representation as an agent to the younger generation of players coming through.
