Where is Jermaine Jenas now?
Bursting onto the Premier League scene in 2002 with Newcastle United and winning the PFA Young Player of the Year award in 2002-03, Jermaine Jenas retired from playing in 2016 after failing to recover from a knee injury.
Many people had thought Jenas had already retired from playing because he hadn’t played since his release by Queens Park Rangers at the end of the 2013-14 season and he was making more and more appearances on television.
Since 2014 Jenas has been steadily carving a successful career as a football pundit and match analyst.

Jermaine Jenas #One2Eleven (3-4-3 Formation)
Jermaine Jenas was a guest on Sky Sports programme The Fantasy Football Club in August 2013 where he picked the eleven best players he had ever played with in their #One2Eleven section of the show.
GK – Shay Given – a leader who was very vocal before games and a top shot-stopper.
CB – Rio Ferdinand – top play who was the ultimate modern-day centre half.
CB – Ledley King – he was that good he could’ve gone onto do anything, anywhere. Two good feet, quick and strong.
CB – Ashley Cole – very attack-minded and used to get up and down the pitch very quick. I don’t think there is a trophy that this guy hasn’t got.
RM – David Beckham – his ability was second to none and he had an absolute wand of a right foot
CM – Steven Gerrard – the godfather of midfielders for me. The best midfielder I have come across and when you’re playing with him he’s such a leader and a driving force.
CM – Michael Carrick – very underated player. He’s been doing it for years and I’ve never seen a midfielder who can spot and pass the ball so quick. A centre-forward’s dream.
LM – Gareth Bale – I’ve never seen such a raw athlete. He’s built to play this game, tall, quick, strong and got a great left foot. He’s unstoppable when he’s at it.
ST – Alan Shearer – I knew when I played with him that if I slipped him in there would be a goal.
ST – Robbie Keane – very slow player but it didn’t matter as he was very clever in his positioning. Defenders never knew where he was going to be.
ST – Wayne Rooney – not only is he a top striker but I just love the way he plays the game. He works his socks off and is such a team player.
