In 2011 Matteo’s book was published In My Defence the Autobiography in which he admitted running up over £1 million in gambling debts.

Following the success of the book he joined the after-dinner speaking circuit, talking about his football career and the highs and lows of being a professional footballer.

Matteo also provides management services for players assisting with contract negotiations, career development and club representation and has also recently linked up with the West Riding FA with an aim to develop young players in the county.

In August 2015, Matteo was declared bankrupt because of his gambling debts which included betting £200,000 on a single horse.

In July 2017 he represented Scotland in Star Sixes, a six-a-side indoor international tournament at the O2 in London featuring some of the world’s most iconic footballers.

In November 2019 he underwent surgery on a brain tumour.
