Denis Irwin

Where is Denis Irwin now?

Regarded by Sir Alex Ferguson as his greatest ever signing for Manchester United, Denis Irwin called time on his illustrious career in 2004 whilst playing for Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Starting his career in 1983 with Leeds United he went onto make 900 first team appearances for just four clubs winning a number of trophies during his time at Old Trafford including seven Premier League titles, two FA Cups, the League Cup, the European Cup Winner’s Cup and the UEFA Champions League.

He was also an important member of the Republic of Ireland national side winning 56 caps and representing them at the 1994 FIFA World Cup finals.

Since retiring Irwin has gone into the media world and is a regular contributor on Manchester United’s in-house television station MUTV.

He has also provided punditry for Irish television station RTE on Republic of Ireland international games as well as writing a column in the Irish Sunday World newspaper.

A 2016 English Football Hall of Fame inductee, Irwin also works as an ambassador for United.
