Lee Carsley

Where is Lee Carsley now?

Predominantly playing as a defensive midfielder throughout this career, Lee Carsley enjoyed many years of Premier League football with Derby County and Everton.

He retired from playing whilst at Coventry City in 2011 after his one year contract with them wasn’t renewed.

Lee Carsley remained at Coventry City in a coaching capacity, leading the under 18’s side to runners up spot in the Academy Premier League.

Carsley was then promoted to the role of development squad coach at the club before leaving to join up with former Everton team mate David Weir at Sheffield United in 2013 as his assistant manager.

In October 2013 after a string of poor results Sheffield United sacked both David Weir and Lee Carsley.

In October 2014 Lee Carsley was back in football at Brentford as the manager of their development squad.

After the sacking of Marinus Dijkhuizen in September 2015, Lee Carsley was promoted to the head coach role at Brentford until the end of the season.

Carsley proved to be extremely successful in the role and won the Championship Manager of the Month award in only his second month at the club.

Never entirely comfortable in the managerial hot seat, Carsley returned to his academy role when Brentford appointed Dean Smith as their new manager.

Although Carsley had agreed to stay on for a month as part of a handover for Dean Smith, he left the club a week after Smith was appointed stating that his work with the club had been done.

In April 2016, Lee Carsley was appointed by the English FA as one of their new “out of position”, coaches working with the national side’s junior teams.

Carsley’s position with the FA only lasted for three months as he quit the role to join Manchester City as their new under 18’s manager.
