Where is Sami Hyypia now?

After a distinguished career at Liverpool where he won 10 trophies in 10 years Sami Hyypia moved to Bayer Leverkeusen in 2009 where he stayed for two seasons before retiring from playing.



Upon retiring, Hyypia took on the role as team manager at Bayer Leverkusen working in tandem with Sascha Lewandowski who was chief trainer.

In June 2013 he became the sole head coach of the club but was he sacked in April 2014 after a miserable run of form winning only one of 12 games.

In June 2014 Sami Hyypia joined Championship side Brighton and Hove Albion as manager on a three year contract but resigned from the club in December 2014 after a run of only one win in 18 games.

Sami Hyypia was back in football management in August 2015 when he was appointed as the new manager of Swiss side FC Zurich.

Unfortunately Hyypia was sacked in May 2016 after his side, which had won the title 12 times previously, had slipped to the bottom of the Swiss league.

Hyypia was sacked despite leading his side to the Swiss Cup Final which they ultimately won after he had left.
