What is Paul Ince doing now?

Paul Ince, the self proclaimed “Guvnor” retired from playing after a short spell as player-coach at Swindon Town in 2006.

Whilst at Swindon, Ince completed his coaching badges and later that year was offered the job as player-manager of Macclesfield Town.

After a successful season with Macclesfield Town he was offered and accepted the manager’s job at MK Dons where he enjoyed more success before heading to the Premier League with Blackburn Rovers.

Unfortunately his time at Blackburn Rovers was not a success and he was sacked after only six months.

In 2009 Ince returned to MK Dons but he only stayed there for one season before joining Notts County. After a string of bad results Ince was sacked from the club in April 2011.

In February 2013, Paul Ince was back in football management with Championship side Blackpool, teaming up with son Tom Ince.

His tenure at Blackpool lasted just over a year as in January 2014 Ince was controversially sacked by the chairman via text message after a poor run of nine defeats in 10 matches.

Ince has most recently been appearing as a guest on BBC’s Saturday lunchtime show Football Focus.

In 2015 Paul Ince successfully passed his UEFA Pro Licence which is the highest-level managerial qualification in football in Europe and allows him to manage any team in any European country.

Paul Ince #One2Eleven (4-4-1-1 Formation)

Paul Ince was a guest on Sky Sports programme The Fantasy Football Club in 2015 where he picked the eleven best players he had ever played with in their #One2Eleven section.

Paul Ince's One2Eleven

GK – Peter Schmeichel – on a different level, the best goalkeeper in the world during his time.

RB – Javier Zanetti – world class player who could play in many different positions and create and score goals.

LB – Roberto Carlos – huge thighs, great striker of a ball and brilliant at recovery runs.

CB – Gary Pallister – you’d never see anyone go past him with those telescopic legs.

Was quick and a ball player but should’ve scored more goals considering his height.

CB – Tony Adams – a colossal player, big character and leader.

Not the quickest but great at timing a tackle.

CM – Roy Keane – the complete midfield player. Inspirational and scored vital goals.

CM – Paul Gascoigne – without a doubt the best player I’ve played alongside.

RM – David Beckham – a true professional and technically the best player I’ve played with.

LM – Ryan Giggs – the best winger there will ever be.

No 10 – Eric Cantona – had an aura and presence about him, when he came to the club I knew we would win the title.

Striker – Alan Shearer – powerful and apart from the goals he could work the channels and his retention of the ball was fantastic.
