Where is Paul McGrath now?

After a long, illustrious career mostly with Manchester United and Aston Villa, Paul McGrath retired in 1998 at the age of 39 and settled in County Wexford, Ireland.

After a well publicised battle with alcoholism, McGrath’s autobiography Back from the Brink, went on to become a number one best seller and win a number of literacy awards.

It is widely regarded as one of the best sports books ever written.

McGrath has been tireless in his work for charity in retirement, specifically for the Acquired Brain Injury Foundation and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation of Ireland.

McGrath is held in so much regard by the Aston Villa the fans they have nicknamed him “God” and his name is still chanted on the terraces to this day.

In 2015 Paul McGrath was inducted into the English Football Hall of Fame.
