Phil Babb

Where is Phil Babb now?

At one point the most expensive defender in Britain when he moved from Coventry to Liverpool, Babb retired from playing in 2004 after two years at Sunderland.

After retiring, Babb kept a pretty low public profile but in 2006 he did invest in “Golf Punk” magazine with a number of former Sunderland team mates and effectively saved it from closure albeit temporarily.

Phil Babb occasionally guests on Sky Sports as a pundit for international games featuring the Republic of Ireland. 

He is also a regular guest on Sky Sports News HQ and Liverpool FC’s in house television channel LFC TV.

In May 2013 Phil Babb was appointed manager of non-league club Hayes & Yeading but left the club by mutual consent in February 2015 leaving his team just one place above relegation.

Babb is now a partner with BetStatz which is a company which helps customers make more informed bets as one of their football experts. He is also an FA registered agent.

Babb appeared as a guest on Sky Sport’s Fantasy Football Club in 2016 and revealed that he knocked out a young Cristiano Ronaldo during a training session when they were both at Sporting Lisbon.

Babb was a member of the successful PlayOn soccer sevens side that won the Masters plate at the 2017 Hong Kong Masters.
