Where is David White now?

David White was a strong, pacey forward who was an important player for Manchester City when the Premier League started in 1992.

Unfortunately he had to retire from the game in 1998 after three years at Sheffield United due to problems with his right ankle.

Upon retiring, White went into the waste recycling business with his brother.

Unfortunately in 2015, after many successful years of trading, the company went into liquidation with 70 job losses and debts of more than £12 million.

White and his brother were declared bankrupt later on that year.

In November 2016, White revealed that he had been sexually abused by his former coach Barry Bennell when he was a young footballer playing for Whitehill Juniors in Manchester.

White who was in the middle of writing his about his experience made the statement after a spate of ex players had come forward to say that they had been victims of sexual abuse in the 1970’s and 1980’s.

David White released his book Shades of Blue: The Life of a Manchester City Legend and the Story that Shook Football in February 2012
