Lee Clark

Back to Fulham / Newcastle United / Sunderland

Where is Lee Clark now?

Lee Clark finally hung up his boots after a second spell at Newcastle United in 2006.

Upon retiring from playing he joined the backroom staff at Newcastle United as reserve team manager and first team coach.

He stayed in this role for a year before joining Glenn Roeder at Norwich City who appointed him as his assistant.

He remained at the club until 2008 when he left for the vacant managerial role at Huddersfield Town.

After a record unbeaten run of games in 2011-2012, Clark was controversially sacked from Huddersfield in February 2012 despite the team sitting in fourth place in the league.

In June 2012, Clark was back in management with Birmingham City after Chris Hughton left to take over at Norwich City.

After a terrible run of form winning just one home league game in a year, Lee Clark and assistant Steve Watson were sacked by the club in October 2014.

Lee Clark wasn’t out of work for long as he was appointed manager of struggling Championship side Blackpool two weeks later.

Unfortunately he was unable to turn around the team’s fortunes and they were relegated at the end of the season.

In May 2015, following Blackpool’s relegation to League One, Lee Clark resigned from the club.

Clark was back in football in February 2016 when he was appointed manager of struggling Scottish Premier League side Kilmarnock.

He managed to secure Kilmarnock’s 23-year spell in the top flight with a win in the play off final.

After a successful year at Kilmarnock, and in a move that surprised many, Clark moved to League One strugglers Bury in February 2017.

In November 2016 Lee Clark released his autobiography called Black or White, No Grey Areas, which has stories relating to his time as a player at Newcastle United, Sunderland and Fulham as well as his career in management.
