Albert Ferrer

Where is Albert Ferrer now?

Part of the foreign invasion of world-class footballers that joined Premier League teams in the late nineties, Albert Ferrer called time on his career in 2003 at the age of 33.

A key member of Barcelona’s Dream Team, Ferrer played over 200 games for the Catalan giants winning the La Liga title five times, the Copa del Rey twice, the European Cup and the UEFA Cup.

He also enjoyed success during his five years at Chelsea winning the FA Cup, the Community Shield and the UEFA Super Cup.

Ferrer also represented the Spain national side on 36 occasions and featured in the 1994 and 1998 FIFA World Cup finals as well as the 1992 Summer Olympics where he was part of the team that won a Olympic gold medal.

Upon retiring Ferrer worked as a co-commentator on a number of Spanish television stations before joining Dutch side Vitesse Arnhem as manager in 2010.

He was sacked from the role after only one season after narrowly avoiding relegation.

In 2014 he made a return to football when he was appointed manager of Spanish Second Division side Cordoba CF.

After leading the side to promotion to the Spanish top tier after a 42 year absence he was sacked early into the new season after winning only four points from their first eight games.

A year later Ferrer was back in football management when he was appointed head coach of Spanish second division side RCD Mallorca but was sacked after only six months in charge after recording only three wins in his 15 games in charge.

Returning to his punditry work, Ferrer worked for Sky Sports’ La Liga coverage before moving to 24-hour Spanish football channel LaLiga.

He is also the current coach of the Barcelona legends side.
