Ryan Nelsen

Back to Blackburn Rovers

Where is Ryan Nelsen now?

A rock at the back in his Blackburn Rovers days, Ryan Nelsen retired from playing in 2013 after short spells at Tottenham Hotspur and Queens Park Rangers.



Whilst still a player at Queens Park Rangers, Nelsen was offered the managerial position at MLS side Toronto FC.

He subsequently joined the club as head coach midway through Queens Park Ranger’s Premier League season in order to prepare for Toronto’s pre-season.

Unfortunately, Ryan Nelsen was fired by the club in August 2014 after a fall out with the Toronto senior management team despite having reasonable success on the pitch with the team.

In a recent interview Nelsen revealed that he has no plans to return to football coaching for the time being and is now working on a number of private business projects.

One of these projects is working as a football player agent representing a company owned by businessman Kia Joorabchian.
